Rankin, Oystercatchers and The Fifth Introduce ‘Creative Influence’ Book

Creative 429 Add to collection

For the new book, over 40 marketing chiefs were invited to a personal shoot in Rankin’s London studio and to share their philosophy of what creativity looks like

Rankin, Oystercatchers and The Fifth Introduce ‘Creative Influence’ Book
Iconic photographer and cultural provocateur, Rankin; Suki Thompson chair and co-founder of marketing consultancy Oystercatchers [part of Xeim Group] and influencer marketer The Fifth, announce the launch of Creative Influence, a book which celebrates creative trail-blazers in modern marketing. 

Creative Influence aims to laser focus the power of creativity and its critical role in business.

Suki Thompson explained: “In a world dominated by data discussion, I believe that creativity is the true power force behind commercial growth. It creates not just works of art but ‘arts of work’ - solving strategic challenges, and, surprising, delighting and changing behaviour.

“Behind every great campaign there is a great marketer passionate about creative. Creative Influence showcases some of the most influential creative leaders in marketing today – recognised stars who nurture, persuade and break the rules to trailblaze creativity with purpose.”

Over 40 marketing chiefs behind some of the UK’s best loved brands were invited to a personal shoot in Rankin’s London studio and to share their philosophy of what creativity looks like. Included are: Kerris Bright, chief customer officer, BBC; Syl Saller, chief marketing & innovation officer, Diageo; John Rudaizky, partner, global brand & marketing leader, EY; Ellie Norman, director of marketing & communications F1; David Wheldon, CMO, RBS; Keith Weed, former chief marketing & communications Officer, Unilever.

Rankin, photographer and founder of The RANKIN Group, said: “To me, creativity is about getting individuals to see things from a different perspective, while expanding your own unique outlook. Hopefully, we can all do this together to help make the world a better place!” 

Oliver Lewis, founder and managing director, THE FIFTH, added: “Here at The Fifth we are delighted to partner Oystercatchers and Rankin in this book.  I am honoured in this small way to be part of their vision and true celebration of talent, inclusivity and creativity. I hope that we inspire more to follow suit and champion creative diversity and positive change.”

Oystercatchers has been an active champion of creativity across business – with creativity at the heart of Oystercatchers’ Club events and industry conversations on the Oystercatchers’ platform. It is a critical outcome of the Oystercatchers pitch process.

Creative Influence was conceived initially in 2018 as a photography exhibition with Rankin to celebrate game-changing creative marketers and unveiled at The Festival of Marketing 2018. Appetite within the brand community to broaden content and insights led to Rankin and Thompson committing to the stand-alone book.
