Listed among the 'Top 100 Creative Minds' in the world by Shots, he is also regularly listed in the Gunn Report’s top 20 most awarded directors.
The class and authenticity of his varied body of work has led to him being consistently featured at award shows around the world, winning awards at Cannes, Clios, One Show and many more.
His film for Topsy, 'Selinah', won Gold at Cannes, as well as South Africa’s first Grand LIA at the London International Advertising Awards, and numerous other international awards. His work covers brand such as Audi, Cadburys, Molson, KFC, BMW, KFC and Prudential.
Serendipity brought Kim and Nice Shirt together, when they collaborated on a Globalcom job featuring world heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua in late 2018.
Nice Shirt MD Richard Martin commented: “Getting together with Kim for the Glo job was a rare and wonderful piece of serendipity - a timely introduction from a great mutual friend. The job was a special one - very hard for lots of reasons, but infused with positive energy - no small part of it radiated by the mighty Anthony Joshua himself. I absolutely love Kim’s work - it’s wonderfully varied, superbly subtle and always soulful. I have the same little tingle - the feeling of being a good fit - as when I first saw, many moons ago, Stuart Douglas and Jesper Ericstam’s work.”
Kim is a true gent, modest and engaging, but, also a truly innovative thinker who likes to keep moving and is disinclined to repeat himself and disinclined to repeat himself.Nice Shirt, 1 year ago
