Everyone's saying

After nabbing two black Pencils at the 2005 D&ADs for his Channel 4 idents, Foraker could be forgiven for resting on his laurels a little. Not a bit of it, though - the channel's output continues to put other broadcasters to shame. The industry is wondering, though, whether he can replicate the same success for other clients now that he's represented by RSA Films for commercials.
