Paul Silburn joined Saatchi & Saatchi, London, in January 2008 as Creative Partner working alongside Kate Stanners. He is one of the most prolific and awarded creative people in the industry. A lot of creative people claim this in their profiles but it’s true.
Since joining forces with Kate they have, most notably, overseen the T Mobile “Dance” campaign, which has been 2009’s most viewed and talked about campaign in the UK so far.
Before joining Saatchi & Saatchi, Paul’s successes include: creating the “Making the Unmissable, Unmissable” launch campaign for the BBC’s iPlayer; overseeing the creation of a branded content campaign for Brawny Paper Towels called Brawny Academy; an online reality TV show to help men become more helpful around the home and more understanding of their partners; the “No Nonsense” campaign for John Smiths beer, starring Peter Kay, which won Campaign magazine’s 2002 Campaign of the Year and helped Scottish Courage to also win the Advertiser of the Year accolade; and that famous “Bear” spot for John West Salmon which was one of the first ads to have a significant viral presence and has now been viewed more than 300 million times making it the joint sixth most viewed film online ever, ever, ever.
When he’s not doing all this stuff Paul shares his home in London with his partner, their two young children, and a team of builders who still haven’t finished his house refurbishment.
He enjoys sleeping, water and non-league football.
