Ivor and Brendan first bumped into each other at Grey in London. There, Brendan was art directing with style, inspired by his time at i-D magazine, while Ivor was penning confrontational headlines for skinhead brand Ben Sherman.
In search of even greater creative highs Brendan headed to Wieden Kennedy Amsterdam and Ivor took off for American Airlines and McCann London.
Along the way, Ivor tied up a girl and put her in the boot of a car for GHD hair styling products. But instead of being put on the sex offenders’ register he won numerous awards and a job as Creative Director of Ogilvy Moscow. Unbeknown, to him, Brendan was also Moscow bound, taking up the post of Creative Director at Vogue Russia.
During his time in Moscow Ivor shot a film with Wim Wenders for American Express, set fire to a car in the Arizona desert and organized a thirty plus orgy for MTV. On top of that he won the Sony business and bagged a couple of awards at Cannes.
Ironically, on the other side of Moscow, Brendan was filming Billy Childish cutting up a Cannes lion and fashioning it into a new art form. The finished film showcased at the Cannes Festival. He also designed and edited a book about Moscow youth imaginatively entitled ‘Moscow Boys’ and ‘Moscow Girls’. Copies can be bought from the Tate Modern and Saatchi Gallery.
In a strange twist of fate they bumped into each other again at a PJ Harvey gig, in Moscow, and have been co-creating ever since.
Ivor and Brendan are, once again, back together in London, creating challenging ideas beautifully fashioned.
