Here are a few nice things people have said:
Aaron is one of those people who somehow seems to exhibit an array of enviable talents! A raw and confident creative, his ability to take a brief, dissect it and lead a campaign from concept to execution is remarkable.
The thing that struck me about Aaron was his tendency to not only to push the boundaries creatively, but to also back this up with a sound strategic route towards achieving a client's objectives. During our time in Simply Zesty, I worked with Aaron on a broad range of projects, from large scale marketing and social media campaigns to TVC's to smaller video and film projects.
His appetite to constantly explore new ideas combined with his easy going and friendly approach just make him someone you'll always want on your team. I'd love to work with Aaron again in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending him to any agency or studio. He's a breath of fresh air!
Kate Larkin - Agency Producer at Epsilon
I worked with Aaron for about two years in Simply Zesty as Head of Creative. Aaron worked with a number of key clients like Full Tilt, Britvic, and Vodafone. As the agency Creative Director, he was responsible for creating and producing our client campaigns, with his best work picking up several awards, including the 2015 AIM award for Full Tilt.
In his role as Creative Director over the last number of years, Aaron has grown into a true creative leader, an excellent communicator and real professional. His knowledge of the youth market and audience is second to none. Working with Aaron was a pleasure and I would work with him again in an instant if given the chance.
Martin Busch - Head of Studio at Paddy Power
I worked closely with Aaron for 2 years on various creative projects including the global relaunch of the iconic Full Tilt poker & casino brand, and I have never seen a more unflappable individual during my 16 years in the ad industry.
The fact that he can maintain his supreme aura of calm at all times, whilst still being an exceptionally creative thinker - probably makes him some kind of biological anomaly. Aaron has a disgustingly professional work ethic, a brilliant personality to have on any set or in any meeting and is hugely popular with both clients and peers. I hate you Aaron.
Eoin O’Brien - Copywriter, Creative Consultant at KV13
Aaron was Creative Director during my time in Simply Zesty and we worked together on many accounts over a two year period. I have yet to work on an account where I've been more proud of the creative output, than the campaigns Aaron came up with and directed. He always completely understood the clients brand and how to respond, yet remained unafraid to push boundaries with ideas he believed in.
What I found most impressing, was his ability to balance strategic issues, creative concepts and practical considerations; all the while coming up with a killer idea. With his positive attitude, great humour and unflappable nature, Aaron was brilliant to work with and clients absolutely loved him, which made my job very easy.
Ashley Reddin - Account Director at THINKHOUSE
I have worked with Aaron across numerous projects ranging from video briefs, brand planning and creative campaigns. He is by far the most tuned in person I have met in terms of understanding the target market he is briefed on. He has the talent to put himself in their shoes and see the world from their point of view.
Good humoured, upbeat and innovative, Aaron is a pleasure to work with. Clients enjoy working with him, and he delivers on brief, growing the best client relationships possible. Aaron goes above and beyond when it comes to creative thinking.
Nothing scares him, he is willing to open his mind and talent to all briefs whether it is for presidential campaigns, FMCGs or government organisations. He is well versed in digital marketing and thinks into the future.
Lisa O’Brien - Head of Digital at Chemistry (Former Client Service Director at Simply Zesty)
Aaron is highly talented and also highly committed. He consistently produces excellent work for clients and contributes to the overall direction of the business. He is a pleasure to work with.
