Creative Director pleading guilty to playing a part in the phenomenal achievements of Farfar - the most awarded digital hot shop ever. Nowadays this empowered CLOWN works as a CD for Publicis Singapore. Yeah! Like it!
Tom has two kids, two game consoles and two credit cards to keep all four units going.

Tom Eriksen (currently based in Singapore), is a writer based Creative Director with more than 10 years of experience, mainly within the interactive field. Tom, like everyone else, has two brain halves. But what makes his brain so special is that it can actually switch between deep analytical to wild creative within a heart beat. Over the years, Tom has learned to master this freaky ability, enabling him to discover deep consumer insights as well as award-winning ideas. The latter resulting in over 30 awards, among them three Gold Lions in Cannes.
Other talents worth mentioning are not so special: Like all creatives he has the mandatory ability to always come up with ideas worth sharing with clients. Not the ones you panic about having to show them, but the ones that makes you a little scared – in a good way. You know, original thoughts that really can't be told by any other than Tom himself. So you let him. And it usually works, because Tom Eriksen seems to love to sell his scary merchandise. (Freak)
