Above+Beyond is boosting its creative firepower by taking on top new talent. Ash Prentice and Tim van der Mee join as senior creatives reporting directly to the agency’s executive creative director, Dom Goldman.
The team have worked at some of London’s top agencies. Tim spent time at Mother, where he worked on KFC’s famous FCK campaign, Saatchi & Saatchi and BBC Creative; and Ash at FCB and M&C Saatchi.
The duo met at AMV BBDO, where their work includes the “Whatever it takes” campaign for Macmillan Cancer, The Economist, Currys PC World, and a global campaign for Pepsi.
Ash joined AMV from WPP’s Global Team Blue when the Ford account moved agencies, while Tim was hired by AMV with his former partner in 2018. They have been freelancing together since they left AMV last year and between them have won three Cannes Lions (Gold and Silver) as well as D&AD and Young Guns awards.
Dom Goldman, executive creative director at Above+Beyond, said: “Tim and Ash are a proven, modern, highly awarded and yet super humble team – I’ve already seen the impact they will bring.”
Ash Prentice, creative at Above+Beyond said “We were sold from the moment we met Dom and the team. They’re building something creatively special here and there is no question that craft is at the heart of that. We can’t wait to get stuck in.”
