Matty and Dave have worked together for the past 18 years. Their work has been awarded as both the most creative and effective in the industry, helping the brands they’ve worked with to achieve great success.
They believe that a brand is made up of every thing it does, everything it doesn’t do, everything it says and everything that people say about it. They basically believe that everything is advertising.
This philosophy sees them looking for ideas that can live anywhere in the world, working between the disciplines of design, communications, PR and media.
Career highlights include winning a coveted Black Pencil at D&AD, 2 x Titanium Lions at Cannes, The Direct Grand Prix at Cannes, a Digital Emmy, 2 x Grand Effectiveness Awards as well as a Webby for digital innovation.
Matty and Dave were recently ranked in the top ten creative directors in the world according to the Big Won Report and are both members of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.
Outside of advertising, Matty co-founded Refill Magazine, a design and art based publication that achieved international distribution and collaborated with artists as diverse as Futura2000, Nigo from A Bathing Ape, Mr Cartoon, Michael C Place, Tilt, Parra and many more. He is the shorter one of the pair.
Whilst Dave, outside of advertising, once lost a band competition to Wolfmother with his band Pivot, who got sued by an American band of the same name, lost the vowels to become PVT and then promptly (after Dave left) became reasonably famous. He also happens to be the taller (and yet still somehow fatter) of the pair.
