Nadja and Nicholas are one of the most-awarded creative teams in the world.

They are the team behind #Bloodnormal. This is a campaign for Bodyform/Libresse that aims to normalise periods. It is the first campaign in ad history to show period blood. The likes of the BBC, Newsweek and The Guardian hailed it as groundbreaking.

Their work put the Guinness brand back into positive growth for the first time in years. They achieve this in a declining beer market.

In 2014, their “Sapeurs” work was one of the most awarded film campaigns in the world.
