Steve Harrison

Steve Harrison was European Creative Director at OgilvyOne and Global Creative Director at Wunderman, either side of starting his own agency HTW (Harrison Troughton Wunderman). HTW won twice as many DMA Awards than any UK agency and Steve won more Cannes Lions Direct awards than any creative director in the world.
