We have an MC in DA house

Big up to Martin Challoner, our latest addition to the DA team. Martin joins us as Senior Creative, let’s here a bit about him shall we…

I’ve been called lots of different names during my 24 year marketing career (Ha ha). Some of the ones I’m allowed to share on here are: Copywriter, Art Director, Film for Web Producer, Animator, Creative Director and Group Head of Creative. But I guess if I had to label myself, I’d go with ‘Ideas Generator’.

Getting to know clients and of course their target audience, is what I enjoy most. By working this way, I have been able to create effective marketing campaigns on TV, cinema and radio, in print and of course online for a diverse range of regional, national and international clients. I’ve been lucky enough to win more than my fair share of industry awards along the way too.

After chatting with Calvin, I quickly realised that DA shared my views about creating engaging content – and their ambitions for progressing in the industry were very similar to mine. We seemed the perfect fit, so here I am.

When I’m not being a ‘Drunk Animal’, you can find me presenting and producing my own weekly radio show called “Mixtape Flavas” on community radio in Doncaster and London – playing old school funk, soul, reggae, house and hip hop. 

When I’m not on air, I spend the rest of my spare time either as the goalkeeping coach for my youngest son’s adult football team, doing watercolour paintings, supporting my eldest son’s drama career or walking in the countryside with my wife and our dog.

I’m happy to be part of the DA team and can’t wait to see what amazing things we can create together for our clients.
