Susan Ayton

Creative Director at BBC Creative

Simona Pop -

Susan didn’t train in advertising and thinks all creative work should infiltrate or change culture. At BBC Creative she’s had the pleasure of working on a tonne of stuff that does just this for BBC Two, Four, Three & 6 Music.

 Before that she worked as a comedy writer & director for Red Bee Media with the likes of Armando Iannucci, Charlie Brooker, Rob Delaney & Tony Law. Before that, she taught at Chelsea art school, exhibited and worked on art projects. Before that she studied at the Slade, Chelsea Art School and Oxford. In case you thought this couldn’t get any more middle class, before that she was a champion horse rider.

 Susan only really uses Instagram. She chooses to be a social media recluse and uses a pseudonym. Under this pseudonym she is also a restaurant reviewer for an East End magazine and occasionally runs a pop up restaurant.
