Stephen Timms

Hello. I’m a senior freelance integrated copywriter/art director. Before going freelance I spent four years plying my trade at OgilvyOne London. Previously, I’ve plied it at TBWA/London, Partners Andrews Aldridge, Harrison Troughton Wunderman, Rapier, Wunderman and Cogent Elliott. Scroll down and take a look at my work. Then see if you can pick the piece that picked up a Cannes Lions Direct Grand Prix. Discover the rare piece of John Lennon memorabilia I found in Rolls-Royce’s archives. Or see why sometimes 784 words are all you need to get your point across on a 48-sheet poster. Thanks for looking. If you’d like me to ply my trade for you, give me a call on 07980 446 308.

Microsoft Duster

IT Directors spend 70% of their time maintaining and managing their system. In fact, much of their working day is spent visiting the Server Room to check that everything is still running properly.

Our Proposition was: “With Microsoft’s Management Tools your visits to the Server Room will be a thing of the past”. To dramatise this, we sent the IT Director a duster. As it said, they’d be visiting the Server Room so rarely, they’d need to do a bit of dusting each time they went there. As you’ll see, for added impact (and to ensure the IT Director kept our message) we printed the letter on the Duster.


  • For This didn’t pick up the Grand Prix at the Cannes Lions Direct. It did, however, pick up a bronze.
