James Springall / Samantha Pantha - Snr team with brilliant craft and very alternative. Both are successful artists on the side, with a great record of agency work
James and Sam are both artists on the side, but still like to stretch their lateral thinking muscles on some creative briefs. Both are incredibly nice, talented and been to some brilliant agencies. James started off at Lowe in 2001, then went to 4 Creative in 2006. He left to go freelance after 3 years and met Sam while at Strawberry Frog in Amsterdam. Since then they have worked together starting off at Droga 5, Sid Lee, 180 Amsterdam, Mother and the list goes on. Gorgeous craft work, smart and very funny. A great team who really like to push the work to do something that completely stands out.

Liam Bushby / Alison Steven - Snr Team with a great media neutral book. Incredibly nice and all about the work and making the best of what they have.
Liam & Alison started their careers with 2.5 years at TBWA before getting hired by Justin and going to Leo's for 4 years. Al Young then hired them at FCB where they stayed up until 2017. They got some lovely work made for the Department of Education while at FCB, but overall their book is lovely, worth pointing out is the NSPCC work, the line/ direction for Homebase and I love their personal projects like the 'world's only Lego adoption agency'. Their recent freelance work for End Youth Homelessness is also very strong. Really nice pair who are passionate about craft and great work

Paloma Reed and Nick O’Brien - Snr team, fully integrated & lots more than TV. A team who can do the big idea and run it through TV all the way to social posts.
Shwan and Anthoula have worked together and apart for a number of years, are great friends and have a wonderful humour and a desire to make work that is authentic and human. A lot of their creative ideas combine a great idea with some kind of interactive element and a digital or social leaning with which the audience can share with others. With agencies like Iris, Mr President, Oglilvy One and HTW on their CV they have been trained to think in an integrated way about brands and Anthoula has experience also working directly to clients combining long copy and a more editorial approach to some of these projects.

Dom is a senior middleweight writer. He started off his career with a Creative ad course at Falmouth followed by 4 years at Grey London working under people like Nils Leonard and Dave Monk. This is where he was the creative lead on the WildAid campaign that put him on the map (so to speak), but also got to cut his teeth on HSBC, Lucozade, Emirates, Greene King, Volvo, Vodafone and News UK. In 2016 Dom moved to McCann writing work for Subway, MasterCard, Microsoft, XBOX, Cereal Partners, Premier Food as well as for luxury experience on Pandora and Godiva. Dom is also quite entrepreneurial and likes a new challenge.

Rick Dodds - Recently won a global whisky pitch with Droga London.
Rick has an exceptional track of work that not only is highly awarded, but also stands out and inspires brands to go further and be braver. He made some great work while at Saatchi & Saatchi in London with T-mobile Dance and welcome back. That was followed up with The European tour which he wrote and shot. That took Rick and his old partner to Droga NY to work on Underarmer, NRG and Chobani. They both left to help run Droga in London in 2016 and made ground breaking work for Ancestry, Uniqlo, SEAT and others. Rick left Droga in 2018 and is now hungry to out his creative mind to work.
