As a role-model for young creatives there are few as long-established as Brian. Of his generation of image-makers there are very few to have risen to prominence and then remained at the top of their game. The main driver of Brian’s success has been the ability to adapt and develop throughout his career, never resting on his laurels or settling for the repetitive use of a single visual hook. Anyone working in a creative discipline can learn a great lesson from this – diversity is key.
