About

*Who are we? Well... We teamed up whilst studying at Lincoln, then stuffed our lives into a Ford Transit and moved to London. After a short spell of writing ads and mopping brows at a&eDDB, we were pinched by Leo Burnett. In our first year in advertising, a unanimous decision saw us awarded by Cannes Lions as the best young creative team in the country and we were flown out to Cannes to represent the UK in Global Young Lions. We were then two of only six young UK creatives invited to attend LIA's Creative LIAisons in Las Vegas, where we spent a week in lectures with the world’s leading Chief Creative Officers. Year two saw us being serenaded again by Cannes Lions, whilst Leo's rocketed up the league table, becoming the most-awarded agency in the world. We now live at Drum. We work across all accounts and report directly to the delightful Monty Verdi. We've been lucky enough to learn from some of the best. But we had a mission when we packed up that Transit... and we're still very much on it. *Nice to know Advertising is a tough industry to get into... And whilst we're not advertising samurai, over the years we've helped student teams get placements, jobs and even awards. A few publications have even covered our efforts to help students get in, such as Campaign, LBB and HYC. In 2017, we partnered with D&AD to launch I Want A Job In Advertising, an online ad school for people who can't afford to go to ad schools. The industry seemed to respond to that well, too. We also regularly host colleges for workshops, mentor at SCA and judged D&AD New Blood 2017.
