Stuart Ruff

Global Creative Director

Stu sets the scene for our clients, guiding brand ethos throughout all creative executions by directing his team up against high level campaign briefs. He’s here to offer solutions. Inherently skilled at knowing what’s on brand and what’s not, Stu always sees the bigger picture when approaching strategic design.

His experience isn’t industry specific as Stu’s led marketing teams across the globe. From fashion staples like Liz Claiborne to Levi’s to lifestyle brands like Unilever and Tesco. Stu’s made his mark on major initiatives for industry leaders across the board, like bringing Mcdonald’s global packaging program to life across 118 countries, and leading the launch of Camel’s best-selling capsule collection, refreshing the brand’s portfolio and challenging the market as a whole.

As a founding member of The Shed, Stu joined Angelique based on the belief that they were here to build something different: a creative collective that would remain politics free and focused on great work that delivers results, using strategic insight as a guide and realizing the power of multidisciplinary participation. He’s all about breaking the boundaries necessary to push a creative vision further, and he’s here to lead by example.
