BBH Asia Pacific lures internationally acclaimed Kissinger Twins to Singapore

Twins.jpgBBH Asia Pacific has appointed creative duo Dawid Marcinkowski and Kasia Kifert to BBH Singapore.

The duo - originally from Poland and most recently based in London - are more widely celebrated as the Kissinger Twins. (While not genetically related, they can confirm their alias was inspired from the British 80's music scene...)

Kifert and Marcinkowski have received international acclaim for their original work.

The duo have produced creative content across a vast media palette including film, digital, photography and advertising for brands that include Channel 4, Honda, Expedia, Philips, Clarins and Avon.
They are also the creators of experimental interactive films such as "Sufferrosa", "The Trip" and "Forget Me Not".

Their work has been widely recognised by major festivals and awards shows, including the Webby Awards, SXSW, Cannes Lions, Luezers Archive, Vancouver IFF, onedotzero, OFFF and The FWA.

American advertising legend Ernie Schenck said of their work Sufferrosa  -  "I've seen the future of Hollywood, and it's from Poland"

Scott Mcclelland, ECD, BBH Asia Pacific said, "I'm a big fan of The Kissinger Twins - of them and their work and we're excited to have them join us. They bring to us fresh new skills and talents and a lovely visual eye (or 4) to help complement our current offering to brands."

Kifert and Marcinkowski commented, "Mae West once said 'You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough'. "We are very excited to join BBH Singapore, and work with Scott and other great talent here."

Needless to say, I will be watching these two very closely…clients aren't used to creative ambiguity so will be fun to see which way this goes. Either way, welcome to the Beebs and watch your back.

Welcome Kissingers!

I jumped on their website and while I think their technical skills cannot be in question, I just could not see what the value proposition was for clients. Nothing on there was designed to sell anything. Nothing.

Interesting duo, not your typical combination and that's a good thing. Time will tell. Good call Scott. For now.

Ingenious way to get photography campaigns and case study videos shot for free.

The rage said: ad agency hiring a team that doesn't really do much advertising.

Good stuff said:

Something things up. And accelerate the trend of agencies bringing production in-house.

@Good stuff said:

Coincides perfectly with clients bringing advertising in-house too.

Good stuff said:

Well true but after a while the in-house department will be spun off as a stand-alone agency and it will all start again.
