  • Write The World's Wrongs - Parker Pens
    Write The World's Wrongs - Parker PensFrom long before Joan of Arc's written call to arms in 1429, and long after Martin Luther King Jr. began his Letter from Birmingham Jail in the columns of a newspaper, what people write can go down in history.

A concept campaign for Parker to get people writing again.
  • Dog Bless Her - BrewDog
    Dog Bless Her - BrewDogSaved by God, blessed by Dog - our old Queen has more than earned a cold one with her feet up. In fact, that's exactly what she does and we've got the pictures to prove it.

  • Guinness. Refreshing Classics.
    Guinness. Refreshing Classics.Ice cream vans bring to mind British childhood, the height of the summer, soleros and 99ps for £1.50. What better than this nostalgic icon reimagined to bring back that same feeling, instead now for a Guinness Summer Fruits? It'll visit Hyde Park, Piccadilly Gardens, Bournemouth Pier, Glastonbury Festival, Twickenham Stadium. It'll play Teddy Bear's Picnic like it was written by the Arctic Monkeys. This is Guinness. Refreshing classics. A concept campaign for the launch of a new Guinness "Su
