Mammal bolsters creative + strategic department with new hires David Little-Jones and Mike Watts

Daffers(R) and Mike (L) Mammal (1).jpgMammal, Sydney, has announced two new additions to its creative and strategic offering, in David 'Daffers' Little-Jones (right) and Mike Watts (left).

The pair both featured in 2015's AWARD School Top Ten, before going on to work with a range of Sydney marketing, content and advertising agencies.

Daffers hails originally from Leicester in the UK, but has spent the last few years surfing the beaches of Australia's East coast, art-directing ads and content, and even selling the wares of some of Sydney's more progressive new agencies. Watts was raised in Sydney's Hills District, before fleeing to a life of DJing and copywriting - with agencies both large and small - closer to the inner city.
Mammal creative partner, Luke Chess, says he was intrigued by the work in their portfolio immediately.

Says Chess: "The guys show a great range of thinking - not just big broadcast work, but Snapchat lenses, social movements, and even simple retail executions with cut-through. As their backgrounds also demonstrate, they're each hybrid thinkers who aren't readily pigeon-holed into the old, traditional agency roles. We've already seen them bring a bunch of smarts and unexpected approaches to the work they're doing with us here at Mammal."

What sort of trick lens was used for that PR shot? Or was camera left standing on an apple-box?
