Nadja Lossgott and Nicholas Hulley are Executive Creative Directors of AMV BBDO.
Together N&N have created genre-bending, culture-shaping work that has won multiple Cannes Grand Prix’s and Titaniums. They’re the proud owners of a D&AD Black Pencil and have work displayed in the permanent collections of the British Museum and the Design Museum. The ad-nerds in them are probably most thrilled to know their Sapeurs campaign is part of the History of Guinness Advertising Reel that plays at the Guinness Storehouse Museum in Dublin.
They are the team behind #Bloodnormal, for Bodyform/Libresse. The global campaign broke down decades of toxic shame, made normality revolutionary and became the first ad to show period blood instead of blue liquid.
They Creative Directed The Trash Isles in partnership with LadBible and the Plastic Oceans Foundation. Rather than making an ad, they helped make a country out of the pacific garbage patch. With so many “citizens” signing up it quickly had a population almost the size of Iceland (with Dame Judy Dench appointing herself Queen).
From writing the influential Guinness Sapeurs film and documentary they now run the account globally, where they recently rebranded boring old tap water into a sexy new product, “Guinness Clear” for the brand’s responsible drinking initiative.
Whether they’re part of the team turning worthless Zimbabwean dollars into billboards, helping create a new country out of ocean rubbish, having a Met Police podcast reach no. 2 on the iTunes charts, writing documentaries about Congolese dandies, or defying broadcasters to help make periods normal, N&N strive to make visually striking work that has meaning, breaks the mould and has cultural impact.
Outside of work Nadja likes to combine her sneakerhead and nail-art hobbying obsessions into one - you can see the result on her new instagram account @niheelism. Meanwhile Nicholas still thinks golf is a sport, and that he’s getting good exercise attempting to get a golf ball into a hole.
