Canadian art director Janice Ko and Australian copywriter Jack Harrison have joined We Are Pi as it expands its creative innovation consultancy offering to new international clients. Ko and Harrison have been recognized as Future Lions contenders at Cannes and their work has been awarded at D&AD, The One Show and London International Awards.
We Are Pi co-founder and executive creative director Rick Chant said, “Janice and Jack’s unconventional attitude brings relevant and radical solutions to every opportunity. They look at things sideways, their twists on briefs are enough to make a pretzel jealous.”
Ko grew up in a Cantonese household on the east coast of Canada before moving to Australia as an angsty teen. Now an adult, she works as an art director, most recently plying her trade at Special Group and VMLY&R Melbourne, working on brands such as Red Bull, Uber Eats, Sharpie, ANZ and the Australian Defence Force. Outside of ads, she enjoys dancing badly and hanging out in hammocks (sometimes at the same time). Ko’s work has been recognized at D&AD, LIA and The One Show.
Harrison spent four years at VMLY&R in Melbourne, and worked on major campaigns for the Australian Defence Force, Monash University, and PTV. Now he finds himself in Amsterdam brushing stroopwafel crumbs off his shirt.
