The two-year old collective just left the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity with a Grand Prix, a Gold Lion in Entertainment, two Silver Lions and another 8 shortlists, including the Titanium Lion – all adding to its growing list of professional acknowledgements. Recent work that brought JohnXHannes NY to the forefront include Montefiore's "Corazón – Give Your Heart," a film that premiered globally at the Tribeca Film Festival with a supporting integrated campaign to drive organ donors. "Give Your Heart" uses interactive technology to allow people to become organ donors by simply holding their phones up their hearts, detecting their heartbeat. Their Squarespace work with John Malkovich and their Beats By Dre's "Above the Noise" also won at D&AD, One Show and Cannes.

"As the lines between advertising and entertainment continue to blur, we set our company up to be able to consistently make work people will choose to engage with," says Hannes Ciatti, co-founder and executive director of JohnXHannes NY.

In addition to an Emmy win 2017 for its Super Bowl campaign for Squarespace featuring John Malkovich, their work was also honored by United Nations Women for the positive empowerment of women. Co-founders John McKelvey and Ciatti have also won multiple Best of Show at The One Show, D&AD Pencils, Gold Effies, and Webbys.

"We really believe in the power of a small group of people coming together with big hearts. It's great to win agency of the year, just two years in," adds McKelvey, co-founder and executive creative director.

The collective was established to craft highly impactful communications at the junction of culture, entertainment, design and technology. The team believes that amongst an explosion of disposable content, a well-crafted brand story is only getting more precious. And that people only see what you make. Less talking. More making.

JohnXHannes NY is part startup, part consultancy, part agency with unique high-end production partnerships in place. And importantly, free of all the things people dislike about traditional advertising.
