We’re a Creative Team currently employed at Leagas Delaney, London. The agency is in its 28th year, and so are we, so we have a lot in common.
Our paths met whilst at university in Birmingham. We teamed up, freelanced in McCann, won a few regional awards and got 1st Class degrees (not that anyone has ever asked!), before taking our big ideas to the big smoke and commuting to London.
We spent a year working in a range of different agencies. A year taking 4am Megabus’ every Monday morning and spending the nights gaining an extensive knowledge of London’s hostel network. But, as with all the Megabus journeys, we got there in the end!
Cristina is the Art Director. Comes from Romania, the land of vampires and stray dogs. Her parents are proud that she has the word ‘Director’ in her job title.
Chris is the Copywriter. English born & bred. Lives off the fame of his Great Granddad, a comedian who starred in the Royal Variety Performance, twice.
Please don’t confuse us with C+C Music Factory. They can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XF2ayWcJfxo

We spent just over 2.5 years working at the global, boutique agency, Kastner & Partners in London. As the only creative team, we got our hands on the majority of briefs, across all our clients, including Red Bull. And we were responsible for two pitch wins. K&P is an independent advertising agency that’s part of a large global network. It’s actually the little known agency behind the behemoth that is Red Bull and has a number of other exciting brands, too.
