We're proud to have written LIDL's tagline, which is rubbing shoulders with longstanding greats, such as: "Sainsbury's, Live well for less" & "Tesco, Every little helps".

Lion Arse Award
You never win a whole lion at Cannes. You win half.
Meaning that somewhere in the world, there are thousands of shiny lion rear ends gathering dust.
From this the Lion Arse Award was born, a creative award for truly resourceful work.
Conceived by Ant at ad school, the award was given first place in Adland.tv's 'Best of Cannes Self Promotion', was featured in Campaign, and Ant got a couple of job offers. Plus this very special message:
"That is truly very funny guys" – Philip Thomas, CEO of Cannes

The Other Referendum
During the UK’s EU Referendum, migrants were often subjected to negative newspaper headlines or throwaway political comments.
Yet they had no vote and no voice to fight back with.
We changed that with a migrant centric referendum and newsroom that allowed us to react to key events in the debate.
Content led to over 3.5 million views and Lebara were invited onto BBC News.

(aka £21,194.62: The Opportunity Cost of Higher Education)
A series of existentialist self portraits that explore the value of higher education.
Created using ink handcrafted from Zish's Economics and Mathematics degree. This artwork's value reflects his current level of university debt, and funds raised will finance an art school in Tanzania.
Personal statement below:
Opportunity Cost is an economics term defined as: "the loss of other alternatives when one alternative is chosen."
At 18, we do not yet know ourselves, but are expected to navigate the life changing decision of higher education.
This work questions and challenges the theory of Opportunity Cost with an idea: use the alternative chosen (degree) to obtain the alternative lost (art).
This declaration of freedom appears as a series of self portraits formed from my burnt Economics and Maths degree. This work deals with themes of choice, education, experience and knowledge:
Why is money society's primary objective?
Is my current debt (£21,194.62) worth the experience and knowledge I now have?
What is the opportunity cost of repaying my debt, versus the creation of an art school in my hometown in Tanzania?
– Zish Alexander

The Gentleman Flu Remedy
VapoMo is a menthol infused moustache wax that we invented, designed and produced.
The conveniently located mixture unblocks even the stuffiest nose. Allowing manflu sufferers to get on with their day with a fresh upper lip, that turns manflu into Gentleman flu.
We're currently developing our prototype into a special charity edition with a leading moustache wax brand.
This fund raising, man saving idea will hit the shelves later in 2017. Cheers Cap'n
