Kerry Roper joins Saatchi London as head of design
People on the Move
Saatchi & Saatchi London has appointed Kerry Roper as head of design.
Reporting into CCO Guillermo Vega, Roper will be part of the senior creative team at Saatchi & Saatchi London, working across the agency client roster which includes BT, EE, Direct Line and Visa. Roper will be tasked with further elevating Saatchi’s design and visual output.
Roper began his agency career at Leagas Delaney, followed by a period as head of design at Dare before eventually moving to Anomaly.
In addition to his advertising career, Roper has been in much demand by Topshop, Nike, Snickers and numerous record labels. Since 2009 he has been the visual creative director for Sushitech Records Berlin.
Three pieces of his art are in the V&A permanent collection and toured the U.K. as part of the Street Art exhibition alongside works by Banksy and D*Face.
The addition of Roper follows a series of major developments for Saatchi London, including the recent brand overhaul for BT and the appointment of Sarah Jenkins as managing director, who takes over the role in December.
