We’re Ricky & Joe
BODY OPT1: We like long walks on the beach, hanging out with friends and curling up with a good book. But people won’t pay us to do that, so we have to work – hence this jazzy portfolio. For our day jobs, we are Associate Creative Directors, coming up with up ideas and campaigns for a number of global brands at AKQA London.
BODY OPT2: By day we are multidiscipline creatives, specialising in ideation, design, copywriting and strategy. By night, we’re usually pretty tired from all the ideation, designing, copywriting and strategizing.
BODY OPT3: We love our jobs, so 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 doing our thing at AKQA London.
