About us

We are Jacob Bjordal and Jim Nilsson, a senior creative team. After studying together in Stockholm, we moved to London where we are currently working for Xbox and Microsoft at McCann.

Our work has received over a hundred international awards and helped transform McCann into one of London's most creative agencies. Career highlights include creating the second most-awarded outdoor/print campaign in the history of the Gunn Report, winning the agency's first Cannes Grand Prix, and having our work featured in numerous advertising textbooks. In 2018 and 2016, we were named among the top ten creatives in the world.

Hoping to inspire and learn from the next generation of creatives, we run the Miami Ad School partnership at McCann and lecture at Forsbergs School of Design and Advertising.
