Running a business is more than just the numbers — it’s about people and human ambition. To encapsulate this, we created a film depicting one man’s journey, from the launch of his company in 1974 up until the present day.
To follow the film, we've created The Elevator Pitch. A competition where small businesses pitched their idea within the confined space of an elevator.
We've also collaborated with various illustrators around the world to support the campaign with a series of print and digital posters.

Xfinity x The Berrics
We’ve always wanted to invent a new sport and the opportunity came up to create one for Xfinity Mobile. Watch the video to find out why but for a short while we were hanging out with pro skaters like Eric Koston, Chris Cole and Sean Malto at a legendary skatepark called The Berrics in LA, even though neither of us has ever set foot on a skateboard.
The promo video.
We created a ton of content that played during the live event like the following…
Following on Persil/Omo's long standing brand thought of 'Dirt is Good' we created a campaign for a new generation of kids. As well as a TV spot and a series of prints encouraging children to play outdoors we also manufactured the T-shirts seen on the print to be sold in local clothing shops.

We created this charming spot for energy provider E.On. Using an old theatre technique that utilises semi-transparent silk backgrounds to reveal new spaces behind. The effect is all done in-camera and lends itself to the fluid narrative. The spot also uses a track by The Lumineers who were an unknown band in the UK until this ad came out and the song reached number 2 in the charts all thanks to us, we like to think.
Director: Tomas Mankovsky
Some examples of illustrations I (Theo) like to do when I get the time.
Looking for Kiko (Documentary)
We like to make short films in our spare time. Here is a documentary we shot in La Habana, about Cuban people and their ability of turning stories into legends, whether they're true or not. We walked around the old side of town asking people about "Kiko Guanabacoa", a non existing character in order to see how far they could go.
