With over 14 years experience in the industry, Chloé has won and judged many international awards including D&AD, Pentawards, New York Festivals, Design Week, The FAB Awards and DBA Design Effectiveness.

She is overseeing our rapidly growing creative team tasked with developing our capabilities, our work and our sustainability. Chloé reports directly to the owners of the business with the additional support of external Creative Consultant, Garrick Hamm and big fish’s long standing Designer Director & Chief Arbiter, Victoria Sawdon.

She takes over from Perry Haydn Taylor, who has until now overseen the creative team. She will focus on building the existing team’s capabilities and breadth of disciplines, continue to strengthen our work and ensure we push our sustainability as hard as humanly possible.

“We are taking on the challenge of helping businesses to be better for people and planet. We also want to practice what we preach by continually evolving our offer and maintaining a startup mentality. That means finding world class people like Chloé who will challenge us to think differently and bring out the best in the people we already have. Chloé has a rare combination of creative flair, a collaborative approach and the vision and courage to reimagine brands.” – Perry Haydn Taylor, Founder & Chief Stoker

“I always try to take brave steps in my work and push myself to be the best I can be. Taking on the creative leadership of big fish® is the next challenge and I am so ready for it. big fish’s ambition fits perfectly with what I see as the future of design studios – building brands that are a force for good in the world. I’m looking forward to working with Perry and the creative team to take an already amazing business and bring my own flair and energy to it.” – Chloé Templeman, Executive Creative Director

“Chloé is that rare thing – an ideas-driven creative who executes brilliantly. Equally important, she can galvanise and lead a studio without taking herself too seriously. I’ve had the pleasure (and envy) of watching Perry grow big fish from his kitchen table into the distinctive force it is today, designing some of the most famous and beautiful brands to grace our shelves. Chloé is set to lead a talented team to come up with the creative, sustainable work that brands and our planet need to survive.” – Garrick Hamm, Creative Consultant & Film Director.
