DAVID BERTRAM LANDS AT BLINK.
16 November 2021

French creative-turned-director David Bertram has joined Blink's rosters in London and Amsterdam.

Once on the books at BBDO Paris, Bertram now expresses himself behind the camera with commercials and music videos. Chuck in a handful of Vimeo Staff Picks and you have a director in his element.


It's clear that Bertram has prepared for this moment: "When I was a creative, I spent my time looking at the work made in England, especially on the websites of production companies. On top of my favourites was Colonel Blimp, now Blink. Full circle."


David is a powerhouse of talent and ideas.

"As a former creative," Bertram adds, "for me craft can't be the idea, it only serves it. That's what I love most about Blink—their passion for great ideas first and foremost, and brilliance in the execution."


Meanwhile, Blink managing director Paul Weston is proud to have someone of Bertram's standing on board: "David is a powerhouse of talent and ideas. His experience to date has given him such a rounded understanding of being a director in advertising and I'm really excited to be introducing such an exceptional talent to the UK."
