Hello, I'm Paddy Paddison.
My pronouns are they/them.
I'm a freelance senior creative based in London.
Over the last 9 years I've worked at a bunch of agencies including TBWA/LDN, CP&B, Karmarama, Don't Panic, Dark Horses, NOW, Gay Times X & The Monkeys Sydney.
I'm an advocate for diversity and inclusion and have founded LGBTQ+ networks, organised numerous events and implemented inclusive policy changes for agencies.
I always strive to reflect this advocacy in my creative work and have consulted on many campaigns for LGBTQ+ audiences as well as speaking at D&I events.
In April 2022 I co-founded the UK's first truly LGBTQ+ inclusive grassroots football league, Clubs United. We are currently playing regularly with a community network of over 30 teams from across London. Check out @clubs.united to see us in action.
