The first executions in our fun new campaign for eir. Directed by Rory Hanrahan and produced by Gaslight.

Delighted that the MyTaxi campaign I worked on with Guns or Knives had a good showing at the Irish Outdoor Awards last night, winning Best Copywriting, the Keep it Simple Award, and the Grand Prix for Creative.

Our eir Black Spots campaign is the editor’s choice and most popular story on Adweek today.

WiFi calling from eir eliminates mobile coverage black spots. So today we took over the entire Daily Mail entertainment magazine and got rid of every black spot we could find – from full stops, to semi colons, to the tittles on i’s and j’s. Developed with Lucas Guratti, Andre Maia and Stephen Rogers.

And we won! Gold for Creative Bravery at the Kinsale Sharks.

Really excited to say that the Irish Film Board have decided to support the production of the second Dead Cat Bounce feature film. So, with a bit of luck we should be shooting “Send in the Clowns” early next year. Lambrini all around.
