Trista Vincent is a creative director, strategist and writer with 19 years of international experience in advertising and communications.

She’s told the stories of telcoms, tech outfits, confectioners, banks, booze makers and not-for-profits; produced ads across all media on four continents and has had – for the most part – a hell of a good time doing it.

In a previous life Trista was a journalist. All she’s ever been is a storyteller.

Her specialties include creative strategy and concept development, writing long and short-form brand content, new business pitches, and calling a spade a spade.

Paudge Donaghy is a dyed in the wool art director, creative director, and not-so-mad ad man.

He’s spent half his life crafting through-the-line campaigns for major league clients such as The National Lottery, Failte Ireland, Denny, eir, Jameson, Fyffes and SuperValu to name a few.

Many of which have won awards, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Since you’re here, you’re probably into big, fat, hairy, media-agnostic ideas that are expertly packaged and brilliantly sold. And that’s something this not-so-mad ad man can absolutely help you with.
