About me
John & Stu met at TMW Worldwide in 2006, and have been friends ever since. In fact, Stu is going to be John's best man this September. They have worked as a team on and off for 13 years at a number of agencies, creating ATL, BTL. TTL, digital, experiential and retail campaigns for a diverse client list. Being best friends allows John & Stu to hold no punches in order to get the heart of the communication objective before unleashing their creative powers. John has spent the past 4 years working as a Creative Director, calling on Stu to work by his side on some of the agency's most challenging projects. As a result, John & Stu have built a reputation for "getting it done", whether it's winning pitches, turning a TV ad around from brief to air in just 4 days or creating world-first, award-winning digital and CRM campaigns.
