SKUNK Signs Directing Legend

SKUNK Signs Directing Legend

SKUNK has announced the addition of commercials director Chris Palmer to its US roster.

A multi-award-winning director, Palmer first started out on the agency side as a creative at BBH, before moving into directing and founding his extremely successful production company Gorgeous. In 2012 he and Gorgeous respectively received the accolades of Most Awarded Director and Production Company in D&AD history.

Of the signing, Matt Factor, SKUNK founder says: “I first met Chris in London in the early 2000’s. I don’t remember much from that night, except being left wanting to know who was this eccentric, entertaining, endearing magic man who’s created some of the coolest ads out of London as both a creative and director?  Now I get to find out first hand."

Palmer commented: “I love Matt Factor and couldn’t resist jumping into bed with him."
