Photographer, director, publisher, cultural provocateur – Rankin is creating a new full service agency which already has brands such as Rolls Royce, Samsonite and Unilever on The Wall.
In the ever-changing, ever-evolving era of creative industries, comes the need for an agency to cut through the bull. Enter Rankin; once known as simply one man is now an eponymous creative agency, an amalgamation of the independent operations Tonic Reps, The Full Service, Rankin Photography and Rankin Film; all tidied up in one neat creative package. Rankin says: “I’ve always been so excited by the new, so when the world started changing I just grabbed it.
Rankin is a 360-degree service agency bringing together all the many creative facets of the acclaimed photographer. The agency sits in that rare spot of not being just a film or photography studio, but also wearing hats in idea generation, editorial content, brand identity, talent management and start-to-finish production.
- Over talented people, a special team of cultural provocateurs, thinkers, creatives, designers, editorial image and film makers that want to help brands to change the world and not to be changed by it.
Joining Rankin to steer the agency are the newly appointed Richard Pinder, ex Publicis Groupe and Crispin Porter, as CEO, and Christine Jones, ex Ogilvy & Mather and WPP as Executive Creative Director.
Do let me know if you would be interested in an interview with Rankin on his vision for helping brands find their place in this complex world and why, as a photographer, he feels he has the permission to play in this area of the market.
