Marc was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award at Chip Shop 2018. On winning it, he threw away all other awards.
He reformed the School of Communication Arts in 2010 and has led it to become the most successful creative school in the world. One-third of its students receive scholarships, which means greater diversity in our white, male, London-centric industry. His alumni can be found in every top agency.
He voted to remain.
"This is the first year that my students haven't entered. The only reason they didn't enter was to give everyone else a chance (we usually win more than any of the grown-ups!). It was getting a bit embarrassing asking for jobs from people who had their arses handed to them at the Chip Shop Awards.
I had heart surgery just before the awards last year. I hope to see ideas this year that put my ticker back into a dangerous rhythm. Brave work. Smart strategy. Gorgeous craft."
