Really stoked to announce that the campaign we shot for Costa via McGarragh Jessee won 2 Addys (American Advertising Awards)! 1 x Gold in the Magazine Campaign category, and 1 x Gold in Elements of Advertising (Photography Craft) category.
It was also included in Campaign Brief’s The Work 2020 which curates the best advertising work of the previous year in Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
Happy New Year from all of us. 2014 seems like a blur now, but we managed to keep track of a few highlights during the whirl-wind ride. Some of them are:
Personal project|The Ol’ Boys: The Ol’ Boys had a big start to the year with a 2 week print exhibition at the Noosa Festival of Surfing. It was great to see the crowds appreciating the 1 metre prints. Throughout 2014 we also caught up with just over 300 surfers who allowed us to take their portraits. The project was featured by ABC radio who attended a shoot and recorded a feature that appeared online and during drive-time radio. The Ol’ Boys also had a multiple page print feature in creative arts journal Collective Magazine, plus featured on Adobe’s Behance networks curated page “The Served” as a feature project.
We worked on a ton of commercial projects too, like shooting on the beach at sunrise for Tourism Australia, received access to Brisbane International Airport and The Sofitel for Flight Centre Business Travel, visited over a dozens of people’s private homes for NRMA Insurance and again for Suncorp Bank, in a gritty inner-west gym with Adam Goodes for Rexona, went back to Brisbane Airport for Virgin Australia (re-licensed worldwide), on blocked off streets downtown for Queensland Police and again for Queensland Health, on The Apple Isle for the University of Tasmania, in supermarket isles for Dan Murphys, and on a city rooftop for Investa.
We were blessed to be awarded a gold and 2 silver awards at the Brisbane Advertising and Design Awards for The Ol’ Boys, plus a silver and 2 bronze awards at the International Loupe awards in the portrait and advertising categories.
We absolutely loved every minute of 2014, and can’t wait to work with all of you in 2015. Thank you to everyone who worked with us and supported us last year.
Chuffed to walk away with 5 Honorable Mentions and 6 Bronze awards at the International Photography Awards and the International Loupe Awards in the categories of Advertising, Lifestyle, Portrait and Photojournalism
The 11 pieces of work that got the nod was a mixture of personal and commissioned work for Clemenger BBDO, Smart/McCann Worldgroup, and Junior. Thanks to everyone at those agencies who where a part of the making process
Stoked to hear that Clemenger BBDO Brisbane is amongst the handful of Australian agencies to make the shortlist in the Outdoor category at Cannes this year for the Olive Branch campaign. A huge thank you to everyone there for having me on board as a part of the making process.
