HELLO

We're Ricky & Joe

We’ve been lucky enough to be trusted by some of the world’s top brands, to create work for their most innovative and forward thinking products.

We like to get our hands dirty in every step of the creative process. From strategy and ideation to art direction, script writing, designing, and client chit chat. At this moment in time, we’re at AKQA New York.

HARD TIME

What we’ve been up to

Joe started his career as a flight simulator engineer. Before taking the next logical career step into advertising. He spent just over four years at JWT London, before moving to AKQA for just over three years, where he’s been able to learn all sorts of invaluable lessons from some pretty great people. In his spare time, he can often be found kicking a ball about or trying his hand at some DIY at home. But never at the same time, because you know – don’t play ball in the house.

Ricky delved into the creative world as a freelance illustrator before becoming a one stop shop for Gumball 3000. For just over three years he illustrated, designed, strategized and art directed everything that needed to be done – from the front seat of a Maserati. However, in 2012, he stepped out of the fast lane and headed to AKQA, where he’s been on a roll ever since. When he’s not up to his eyeballs in briefs, he can be found freelance designing, building websites, begrudgingly creating friends wedding invitations and flying his drone…a little bit too much.
