ABOUT

We’re Lisa and Victoria, an art director and a copywriter & illustrator from Norway. Speed dating for the partnerless brought us together in our final year of university, and by the end of it we’d won our first D&AD pencil. Shortly thereafter we got on a plane and flew 27 hours to become Monkeys in Sydney. Twelve months later we started at Johannes Leonardo in New York where we’re currently coming up with ideas for clients such as Adidas originals and Alexander Wang.

We believe that the best way to make great work is to keep one’s nose to the grindstone and sip strong coffee simultaneously, as well as staying curious about everything. We don’t let our job titles limit us and spend a lot of time painting, drawing, collaging, photographing and building stuff too. Sometimes the odd bit of poetry pops out. Our life bleeds into our work and vice versa. We talk about ideas at the bar on a Saturday night and think that’s exactly how it should be. Oh and we take our vacations together too.
