Director Jeff Labbé has joined Furlined for representation in the United States. His work has garnered top awards at the Cannes Festival of Creativity, D&AD, The One Show and Clios, amongst others and, says Furlined, “expresses big ideas as simple human truths, touching audiences and capturing the spirit of these times.”
“Being a Brit and working in the UK, I have revered Jeff for the last decade,” states Ben Davies, EP/director of development at Furlined. “Few in our industry have the ability to tell stories, and develop characters in the most authentic of ways. 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.”
“I kind of feel like John Travolta being handed the script to Pulp Fiction,” says Labbé. “I’m steeped in excitement and can’t wait to jump into the US market. Diane [McArter, Furlined founder and president], 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,” adds McArter.
