Christian and Andy Biography
Christian and Andy have over 16 years experience in the advertising and communications industry. In that time they have garnered awards and achieved success for a wide spectrum of clients from multinational blue chip clients to independent start-ups.
Most recently Christian and Andy have worked at Havas, where they were the Creative Directors on Durex and Ella’s Kitchen. As well as Christian occupying the position of Head of Art.
On Durex they made the most watched youtube ad of 2015, with over 75 million views. In fact Google use it on their client presentations, holding it up as a prime example of how to engage a global audience. As well as that they oversaw numerous campaigns across a variety of different media , including an online STI campaign that targeted 18-24 year woman and empowered them to protect themselves from disease and unwanted pregnancy by encouraging them to carry condoms (an area mired in stigma).
In Q3 Christian and Andy were drafted in to run Citroën, an account that had incurred two ‘red lights’ in the last two quarterly reviews, and as a result was going to be put up for pitch. Within 3 months the account had achieved a green light, and did at every stage under their guidance. Citroën’s UK business is predominantly digital, and highly results driven, however the C3 launch in 2017 beat the projected targets.
On the back of their success with Citroën, Christian were given PSA sister brand Peugeot to run, another account with a digital focus.
In April 2017 they were instrumental in Havas winning the Rolls Royce integrated account.
