Career highlights

Deepend, Poke, Social Suicide, D&AD.


The founder of Poke is the first D&AD president to hail from the world of digital advertising, and it couldn't have picked a more flamboyant figure. Waterfall, who is (in)famous for dressing up in women's clothes, has his finger in a number of pies, including his own designer clothing range, all of which seem to keep him as busy as his official role at Poke does.

Why are you good at what you do?

Because I could talk Gandhi to violence.
