Rob is Co-Founder & Creative Director at One Twenty Three West. He helped launch the agency in a garage in East Vancouver with partners Bryan Collins, Jeff Harrison and Scot Keith to embrace the current realities of the industry, with the positioning: low overhead, high talent.
Within the first year, they were invited to speak at Cannes about their agency model and new approach to advertising and design.
Today, 123w continues to build a team of senior talent, including 12 working creative directors, and has clients all over the world.
Rob has been fortunate enough to have his work honoured with pencils in every discipline at the One Show, D&AD, Cannes, Clios, and Webby Awards. As a result, he’s been ranked the top-awarded Art Director in Canada 3x by Strategy Magazine and in the top 10 for Creative Direction. He’s also judged Cannes twice and sits on the advisory board at Capilano University.
