Beth was lured back to Colenso after a successful stint in New York as an Associate Creative Director at R/GA and Droga5, where her and her partner created some of the country’s most high profile work. During the most contested election in U.S. history, The New York Times and Forbes Magazine labelled their Role Models spot for Hillary Clinton “a masterpiece of political advertising” and a “Hall of Fame-level” ad. Beth has won over 40 national and international awards, including New Zealand’s only ever a black pencil for K9FM, which she made at Colenso before leaving to the States.
Thom returns from 5 years at R/GA NY. His We Are America campaign has been viewed over 120 million times, and is up for an Emmy at this year’s awards. And his last year’s Mamba Day campaign for Nike was the most successful shoe launch in history. The campaigns picked up 5 lions at this year’s Cannes festival, and made Thom half of the R/GA network’s most awarded team globally.
“Thom and Beth are absolutely world class. We’re thrilled and genuinely humbled to have them with us” says Levi Slavin, Chief Creative Officer at Colenso BBDO.
