Art direction to bring to life NatWest's brand positioning 'Helpful Banking'. At a time following the banking crisis, it was important to regain customers' trust and strive to give the brand a human face.


Working with photographer Bill Robinson (, we set up a makeshift studio in various NatWest branches around the country. We then captured portraits of real (often reluctant) NatWest staff members in their familiar surroundings in a realistic style, overcoming the challenging environment of a busy high street bank.


What started as photography for the next quarter’s in-branch campaign, quickly became used for the above-the-line campaign, based on the strength of the images.

This work was undertaken in a freelance capacity working for Clear Ideas.
