Meet Peter Higgins...

PETER HIGGINS
ABOUT:

Hello!
A while back I made the journey from Liverpool to London. I’m a senior creative who just wants to create great work, have a few laughs doing it and pick up the odd award along the way. For the last 11 or 12 years I've been working at agencies including McCann, CHI and M&C Saatchi/LIDA.
I love coming up with ideas. Crafting copy and art direction is important to me but I don't like to get too precious about that until I know there are good ideas down on the pad. I'm comfortable working in a fluid partnership where we share roles or as the Copywriter. Ideally, I see myself either ATL or in an integrated agency where TV and print is a huge part of the role.
If you think my work looks interesting and you fancy grabbing a decent coffee or beer to see if we click then please get in touch.

Meet Renaud...

RENAUD
ABOUT:

Hi I'm Renaud, but you can call me Renaud, or René. 

I'm a creative copywriter looking for my other half as a full Art Director to make a whole... Well you got the idea. 

I've worked for more than one year in Fred&Farid Paris on campaigns from digital to film. The good thing is we had the opportunity to work, present, argue and occasionally scream with Farid, the guy who has the name on the wall... This was a rare opportunity. I learned a lot, the hard way.

We were juniors but had lots of responsibilities. "Started from the intern level now we hired as juniors full time creatives after 3 months..." as the famous song goes. 

Experience writing for TV, Radio, Digital, Print concept, global campaigns.
I'm fluent in English, don't worry. Just arrived in London but had some exchange students in my family since I was a young boy running around naked yelling at my brother. So I've always lived, talked, wrote in English : 
"I speak english very much !"  See ?
I'm a sponge bob for culture, over-eating movies. 
I'm passionate about stand up comedy, Louis C.K. is obviously a genius and The Office is the best TV show ever done. 
Usually, my friends like me. 
WORK:

Here is some work, I've translated everything on my online portfolio (link at the end) 
Pulco's slogan is "When laziness is good".
On Meteo France website  : "When looking at the sky is too much trouble"  
Pulco on Canal + channel and International CourrierInternational websites : "Canal +, Work -"  and "International courier, lots of work for the postman" 
Senseo little pretty coffee machine "Irresistibly small" 
Soap le petit marseillais "Soft Almond Milk Soap" 
Borderline juice "Drink Punk" 
Humanis "Who said that..." about social protection common believes. 
Assistant copywriter on the account, won the account in the agency, worked on radio, prints, film script




Meet Desmond Chan...

DESMOND CHAN
ABOUT:

I’m a New York Junior Copywriter looking for an Art Director to work with. Mostly all the art direction in my book was done by me. 
Recently finished up a stint at JWT NY where I worked on Puma, Listerine, Schick and some Nestle. 
I had a background in digital before getting into advertising but have done a bit of work for every medium. Written TV scripts, OOH, Print, blahblahblah. 
Work is basically me dreaming a bit, randomly laughing at a funny thought, joking some more, trail off, stare at the ceiling and wait for something to hit. 
Let’s go stare at some ceilings together shall we? 
Oh, I'm also a huge NBA fan.

Meet Biff...

BIFF
ABOUT:


My name is Philip Smith, but I go by the name of Biff.

I'm a 24 year old illustrator, designer and art director. I'm going to say i'm a junior? Because that matters. Weymouth in Dorset is currently my home. However, I'm looking to move back to London ASAP. I spent 2 years in London before moving to New York for a few months for a job. It blew my mind, so i'm just looking to pick the momentum back up. "Never go backwards"- somebody said once.

I've created assets for apps, posters for book releases, prints for charity and storyboards for TV ads. Studios and agencies i've worked for include; Razorfish, Radical Media, Studio Moross, Print Club London, Ghostly Ferns and a load more on more of a freelance basis.

Boring work is for boring people. Who wants that? Nobody that's who. I want to make interesting work for interesting people. Let's make things with our hands, lets pitch a short film, let's direct an event. I'm down.

Let's get beers and/ or coffees.

Meet Razvan Mitache...

RAZVAN MITACHE
ABOUT:

Hello, I'm Razvan. I'm a junior copywriter based in London who's looking for an art director eager to put together a portfolio and get hired (or at least be brought in on a placement; it's a process, I understand, it's fine). 

The reason why I'm looking for a new partner is my old one moved from the UK, so here I am. You can find our portfolio at the bottom.

What else -- I'm a down to earth dude who likes advertising that stands out from the crowd, goes against the grain, all that. I enjoy doing things differently than what's been done before and I try to apply this philosophy in my work. Which is not to say that I'm inventing hot water all over again, but I do strive to make advertising that you would remember -- either because it's funny or shocking or sad etc. 

I think what we, as advertising people, need to do is leave an impression on the audience. So, for instance, I'd never do (this just came to mind as I'm writing this) 101's Baileys' campaign -- computer generated waves of chocolate and towards the end there's a woman kind of emerging from all this chocolaty cloud. https://vimeo.com/76760354

To me, that's just dead advertising. By the way, I have nothing against the people at 101, their ad just popped to mind, some of their stuff is actually cool.

So yeah, anyway, if you're an AD who needs a copywriter and you want to do some interesting ads, find a job and rock this whole adulthood thing, gimme a shout.

Cheers.

Meet Marija Lazarevic...

MARIJA LAZAREVIC
ABOUT:

Hello!

My name is Marija (like maria) and I have a BA in Advertising and PR. I am an aspiring creative copywriter looking for an art director to help put together my Ad portfolio. It's proving harder than I thought to get this done on my own. It would be nice to have someone to bounce ideas around with!

I'm starting from scratch which may be a good thing since we can both put our ideas into everything together.

I'm located in Chicago and would be willing to work through skype, as well.

If anyone is interested please get in touch.




Meet Jess Witt...

JESS WITT
ABOUT:

Hey Creatives!

I'm an Art Director from Australia but currently living in Berlin and moving to London in the next couple of months. I'm looking for a mid-weight copywriter and a kickass job. I'll be flying between London and Berlin to make this all happen. My first visit will be the first week of Feb. 

If your a copywriter who has some experience in art I'm happy to blur the lines. I love copy too and I whatever I do I love to chat what we produce so that we are both happy. 

I worked in a smaller digital agency in Australia for 1.5 years and now in Berlin at BBDO for 2 years. 

I love truthful and insightful ideas and will work hard to make it happen. If I'm not laughing while I work, somethings wrong. This is what I love...drinking too. 

I've been lucky to win some awards at a few festivals too: Cannes Lions, Clio, LIA, Eurobest, Lovie.

If you like my work please get in touch.
