Blake has been nominated at Promax UK a whopping 29 times, scooping 5 golds, 4 silvers and 3 bronzes for Comedy Central. If thatís not a lot of metal, he doesnít know what is.
He has overseen 5 brand refreshes for Comedy Central (2009 - 2019), which means he's either really good at them, or really bad at them. He likes to think it's the former, with judges at the Broadcast Digital Awards praising his "fantastic" rebrand
when Comedy Central won Best Entertainment Channel in 2019. So he must be doing something right.
Blake has also overseen brand refreshes for 5Star (2019), Paramount Comedy Russia (2011), Comedy Central New Zealand (2009), and most recently acted as Design Consultant for Channel 5's 2020 rebrand.
He designed the entire lauch campaign for 2018's Roast Battle, which went on to be Comedy Centralís highest-rated commission ever.
His animated film, Carry On Wallace & Gromit
, made front page of Metro
News online in 2014. It caused a bit of a legal storm but Blake came out of it with his head held high. He who laughs last
and all that.
In 2012, the BBC twice featured his Red Dwarf
tribute music video, using it as a call to action
for the upcoming new series. It was described as "fabulous"
by Red Dwarf
series script editor and documentary director, Andrew Ellard, who went on to say: "this could well be the greatest fan made Red Dwarf creation ever"
It also made front page
of The Poke
, the biggest humour site in the UK, where it was awarded "Supercut"
Blake's logo and flyer designs have twice been on display across the capital to promote Bromley's annual sci-fi convention. Do you want to believe?
His Promax-nominated South Park: Season 15
promo was featured in Broadcast magazine
His short film, Sleep
, opened the Suburban Shorts film festival in 2004 to critical acclaim. It was the first piece of A-Level Media Studies coursework to receive full marks by the examination board and went on to become exemplar material nationwide.
His A-Level Film Studies coursework was also used as exemplar material, having also achieved 100%.
He won 1st place in an egg-and-spoon race in 1996.
