Paul Farmer

Having graduated in Marketing from the University of Stirling, Paul started his career at a small start-up agency and never looked back, becoming a company director in 1996. From there, his client base swelled to include such big names as Kawasaki, Shell, Honda, Brother and Harley-Davidson. In 2011, he decided to take on a new challenge and established RED on 1 January 2012.

Paul is at the heart of everything we do at RED, be it copywriting or advertising campaigns. He injects the same level of passion, enthusiasm and commitment to the company that he’s had from the very start of his career.

RED Factfile

Best thing about working for RED

It’s a happy, positive working environment that attracts like-minded people.


Most interesting assignment

A ‘top secret’ mission to Japan for Hitachi about its hybrid wheel loader. The working aspect was phenomenal and we got to see the real Japan!

Favourite RED item

My Manchester United home shirts from any title-winning season.


Claim to fame

I’ve been lucky enough to meet a whole host of celebrities at football matches (e.g. Eamonn Holmes, Ian Brown and Kelly Jones). I think shaking hands with Sir Alex Ferguson has to be top of the pile though.
