Rosie Arnold - Jury president

AMV BBDO / Creative Partner and Head of Art


Rosie started at Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO in September 2016, after a short sojourn at Bartle Bogle Hegarty, some 33 years. She graduated from Central St Martins with a BA (Hons) in graphic design while moonlighting for the then tiny hotshop which was BBH. During her time at BBH she won numerous awards for her creative work on businesses ranging from Levi’s, Pretty Polly Robinsons, Audi, Heineken, Shell, Yeo Valley and Lynx, which she ran as Creative Director for 15 years, maximising ‘The Lynx Effect”. She was made Deputy ECD of BBH in 2009.

In 2012 she was made the second female president of D&AD in the charities 50th year. While president she introduced the first new pencil in D&AD’s history - The White Pencil – which is awarded for work that not only sells, but also does good in the world.

With the urge to do great creative work and to “try something different” she joined AMV as a Creative Partner and Head of Art. She is looking forward to another long fruitful relationship.
