About

Sarah Hardcastle.
Creative thinker and maker living in Hackney, London.

Back at school they gave me shit for not being able to colour inside the lines. I've been a rebel ever since.  

I love being creative. I love that feeling of coming up with something that didn't exist 3 seconds ago. I love working with incredible people to create work that inspires others, and contributes to the way we live- however big or small that may be.

Over the years as an advertising creative I've made campaigns for brands including Sky TV with Idris Elba, Carphone Warehouse with Keith Lemon, Universal Channel, Sellotape, Robinson's, and Freesat to name a few.

Currently I'm a creative and copywriter at Mr President in Soho with fellow creative and art director Elliott Shiels. We've worked together for 7 years, having met on the creative advertising course at Bucks University. Previously we've made work at Brothers & Sisters, BBH, Mother and Rapp.

I also make things under the banner POMP LONDON predominantly working in wool and textiles to create visual pieces that make a statement. I once tried to run my own market stall but it was shit and I remembered that etsy exists. 

When I'm not working I take huge enjoyment and pride in mentoring and teaching others about the creative industries. Nothing gets me buzzing (and jealous) more than meeting talented, hungry, young people. They'll rule the world one day y'know.
