Acclaimed director Jeff Labbé has joined Furlined for representation in the United States.
Jeff Labbé’s award-winning work expresses big ideas as simple human truths, touching audiences and capturing the spirit of these times. He is renowned for his masterful storytelling and artful executions.
“Being a Brit and working in the UK, I have revered Jeff for the last decade. Few in our industry have the ability to tell stories, and develop characters, in the most authentic of ways,” states Ben Davies, EP/Director of Development at Furlined. “His passion for this industry, his understanding of the creative and strategic insight and his craft of the work have made him one of the UK’s top directors. Partnering on a diverse range of work, whilst always remaining true to his core, bringing craft, honesty and intelligence to the simplicity of a concept. The UK and Europe have been home to Jeff’s work in recent years, and now it’s the time to bring Jeff’s immense abilities to US partners and brands. I am privileged and excited to take these next steps with a friend and creative partner.”
Jeff’s recent work for Boots No7 with Mother London (below), and celebrated feminist author, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, reframes the often times paradoxical relationship between femininity and feminism for women today.
His work has garnered top awards at The Cannes Festival of Creativity, D&AD, The One Show and Clios, amongst others. View Jeff Labbé’s reel.
“I kind of feel like John Travolta being handed the script to ‘Pulp Fiction,’ Jeff says. “I’m steeped in excitement and can’t wait to jump into the US market. Diane, Ben and the Furlined team are a first-class group loaded with experience of craft and artistry. It’s going to be fun.”
“We’re thrilled to welcome Jeff to Furlined. Jeff’s infectious enthusiasm and his love for advertising make it a joy and privilege to embark upon this journey together,” comments Furlined’s Founder and President, Diane McArter.
