BIOGRAPHY

Screen Shot 2018-08-17 at 4.15.16 PM.png
ALASTAIR PATON

Recognized for his producing skills in creating memorable campaigns and stories that create a response, Paton is informative, and dynamic in the play of the potential of the latest technologies, be it worldwide cross media architecture for Heineken or a simmering multifaceted story for Netflix.

 

Stories for a more demanding fluid generation, about lightness, smart combinations, win-win materials, tension stress and minimal energy, radiolarians, plastic soufflé, frozen fabrics, bridging the gap. As imagined lives, as entertainment, as soap bubbles, as an emotion or memory, as something worn, as fiction, as illusion, as 1000 unopened love letters, as not thinking it will rain.

 

Proficient in writing, architecture, management and design with a typical project blending all seasoned with a soupçon of whimsy in getting it done right.

 

It is about reinvention, and the winds suggest brand is king and content is queen. An expert at cutting through the "same-old" noise, finding fresh new ways to get people involved and excited. 

Directed campaigns for a diverse range of clients from Miami to Stockholm to Chicago to Seoul, creating

campaigns and moments for Air Canada, Adidas, Aerius Medical, American Express, AMX Sweden, AT&T, Avmed Pharmaceutical, Bank of Canada, Barclays Bank, Blaupunkt, British Telecom, British Petroleum, Carefree Arizona, Carlsberg, Coors Light, Detroit Brand Evolution, Deutsch Bundespost, Du Maurer, General Motors, Goldengates Casino Colorado, Greektown Casino Detroit, Hite Beer Korea, Interim Miami, Katherine Hamnett, Kellogg’s, Labatt Beer, La Ronde / Six Flags, Luzianne New Orleans, Molson, Mazda, McEwans Beer, Memphis Goldstrike Casino, Micrrosoft, Molson Beer, Montelago Casino Las Vegas, Palms Casino Las Vegas, Panasonic, Panoxyl, Pirelli, Reebok, Renault, Shanghai 2010, Sony, Suntory, Taky, Visa, Volvo, Yamaha Corperation, Yunan International Techno Park, and on....
