Benjamin Breathwick + Caroline Riis | Creative Dynamic Duo | London, UK
The boy, Benjamin Breathwick of Boston, Linconshire, grew up believing that he’d never truly be happy until the day he would work in an ad agency. This belief stemmed from early exposure to “Secret Lemonade Drinker” and a total mis-reading of the movie ‘The Truman Show’.
The girl, Caroline Riis of Oslo, Norway, did not share this belief. Since the disintegration of her early savings due to convincing advertising she’d only want two things. One was to move to England, and the other to earn back the money advertising took away from her.
Benjamin meets Caroline on January 6th 2010. He knows almost immediately she is who he needs to make the best advertising team London will ever see.
This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story.
Caroline has a background in TV production, media science and project managing in Norway. Benjamin comes from a background in advertising and marketing, and also as a project manager for HP.
They teamed up whilst both getting their MA in Creative Advertising at Bucks New University, and have been a creative team ever since. The are currently based in London, making their way into advertising through various placements. Currently at VCCP.
