A fresh team in Amsterdam. Jess Gunn is copy and James Crossley is art. Both from opposite sides of the world, we’ve joined forces with a shared desire to kick butt in the creative ad world. And when you’re a new team in town, you need to prove yourself. The proof, in our case, is doing.
Since teaming up in September, we’ve won two and a half Jonge Honden pitches and an Honourable Mention at Eurobest and Cannes Young Lions competitions. Not bad, if we do say so ourselves.

He has had 8 teeth pulled out, can do a one-legged squat, raced semi-professionally in the Nascar 2014 Cup Series and has never had a pet or a kebab.

Best described by one of her Creative Directors as having an outer child and an inner adult. She’s an improv amateur, word geek and dance-move master.
A copywriter by craft, she’s cut her teeth on some of Australia’s largest clients; including L’Oreal Paris, Maybelline, Metro Trains, Whiskas, My Dog, AGL, Tatts Lotto, Suncorp and Tigerair.
She’s been lucky enough to work with some of Australia’s leading advertising creatives and they've been unlucky enough to witness her dad jokes.
