n/s

Give us one reason why advertising is still brilliant in 2019.

Because it’s like the wild west again.

In 2019, I'll be using blockchain to…

n/s

You decide to launch a brand. What is it called and what does it do?

Not telling.

When was the last time you felt professionally vulnerable and why?

Answering these questions. Fuck me, they are tough.

Who is your favourite Instagrammer and why?

Paul_dannan_official!!!! A Little bit of sick comes up in excitement every time they post.

You win the lottery. What would you do first?

n/s

Name one thing you think is criminally overrated by industry, society or culture and explain why.

James Corden… urgh.

Name one thing you think is criminally underrated by industry, society or culture and explain why.

James Corden’s writers.

What is your go-to boxset binge?

I’ve just got off a 10-hour flight and watched The Jinx for the fifth time! Why do I like it so much? Why did I go out of my way to drive past Susan Berman's house? Why do I have an urge to go to Galvastan? Oh shit I’m a psycho. They got me now, arrest me. I killed them all. I KILLED THEM ALL.

Enough's enough: it's time the next Doctor Who was…

No-one. I hate it, always have. Smug, irritating idiots titting around in long coats fighting aliens that are clearly made out of loo-roll tubes.

If you weren't you, who in the industry would you like to be?

Dougal Wilson. I’d love to have his thought process for a day and to see how he does what he does. It would be so much fun.

The lowdown:

Brim is at the top of his game, running the creative department of one of London’s most formidable agencies and leading a team that consistently produces some of the industry’s best work. He is an immensely warm and likeable character, one of a new band of brilliant, misfit creative leaders who have bonded over a love of their craft. But Brim is also a fiercely driven and determined operator who’s not interested in the politics or bullshit that can accompany corporate life. Don’t be surprised if he does his own thing one day.
