About Pete Cunningham, Partner, Redsuit
Pete started his career in advertising as a dog’s body in 1982 having dropped out of university with a GPA of 1.2. He then worked in Brisbane and Sydney agencies before forming Anderson Cunningham Advertising with John Anderson in 1990. The pair rebranded the agency as Redsuit in 1995 to reflect their belief that the agency is here to help their clients stand out in a busy marketplace.
Pete’s work across brands and behaviour change has been presented as case studies nationally and internationally and Pete has served as Queensland Chair and National Board Member of Advertising Federation of Australia and Vice-President of the Australian Association of Social Marketing. His passion is seeing great work brought to life – and producing the briefs that make this happen. He says his agency, Redsuit, has always done its best work with challenger – or challenged – brands: organisations that see marketing as key to them getting ahead – or regaining some lost ground.
Campaigns under Pete’s direction have been recognised nationally and internationally – in particular, the agency’s work for Griffith University and Queensland Health – both winners of AFA Effectiveness Awards, the Australian advertising industry’s highest accolade. He has a simple premise: take what’s authentic and make it compelling.
