Senior creative @workclub London, previously droga5 and S&S; Auckland. Creative behind the Ballantine's Space Glass. When not making advertising I like to hand-code minimalist websites. I once made a site that solved boy problems with Beyonce songs, and Glamour Magazine said "It might be the only website you'll ever need to visit again". However if you do want to visit other websites, you could try 'Is There Something In My Teeth' (2014) which is your internet compact mirror. Or perhaps'Artview' (2011) which is paintings x Streetview.

Jim Kerr
Musician & Singer-Songwriter
Jim Kerr Info Events
Jim Kerr is a Scottish musician and singer-songwriter, best known as lead singer of the rock band Simple Minds, who achieved five UK No. 1 albums. Simple Minds were the standard bearers for a new kind of rock music in the 1980s. They took the jagged, glacial hues and art-rock invention of the post-punk generation and constructed a musical Colossus.

And now, almost three-and-a-half decades on from their first real landmark album – 1980's thrilling, impressionistic Empires And Dance – the Glasgow quintet, with frontman Kerr and guitarist Burchill at their creative core, are rekindling the energy and attitude, the mystery and magic, that made them one of the greatest bands on the planet.
