Ogilvy & Mather Paris Keeps the Creative Bar High

Continues to seek & hire the most avidly sought-after creative talent in the industry

Paris, October 25, 2010 - Brandon Rochon & Adam Kennedy (who call themselves ‘Chocolate & Cream’) developed their skills and found their passion for creativity at the Atlanta based Creative Circus, well-known for graduating the best prepared creatives in the industry. 

“With the world changing so fast, it demands new age thinkers. Chocolate and Cream are anything but traditional. They have a fresh creative view on things that breathes new life into brands and the agency,” said Chris Garbutt, Award-winning Executive Creative Director of Ogilvy & Mather, Paris. 

Each one an art director, but, with a single concept, “true creativity.”  As partners, they’ve become a formidable inspiration in the advertising community.  Winners of the Gold Pencil at D&AD in 2005, the two knew that if they believed enough in their own ideas, then others too would soon realize that “awesomeness works!”  

“We came to Paris because it’s all about the idea.  We don’t think in terms of ‘American’ or ‘European.’  Our job is to talk to a person on an emotional level with an idea based on a human truth that everyone knows.”

Asking the question, “How does creativity build more creativity”?, the Chocolate & Cream Team left TBWA, Paris to join Ogilvy, Paris and Award Winning Executive Creative Director, Chris Garbutt, to push their passion for creativity. As Chocolate & Cream would say, “this is a stand-up moment” when you know the idea is right.
