Creative director team Tim Vance and Paul Knott join Wieden+Kennedy London after six years at AMV BBDO, where they worked on integrated campaigns across the agency portfolio.
In the past, they have helped to innovate brands including Doritos, Sony PlayStation, Mercedes-Benz, The Economist, Guinness and VW. Their work has been awarded golds at every major award show, with Lions in six different categories at Cannes.
The team, who first met at LBi, have a particular interest in non-traditional channels and branded content. Much of their work to date has exploited the storytelling possibilities offered through new technology.
During their prolific time at AMV BBDO, the team created Thinking Spaces for the Economist, the immersive Tipping Point hunt for Guinness, 'Dip Desperado' for Doritos, and ‘Escape The Map’, a chilling interactive sci-fi thriller for Mercedes.
