Creative directors Collier and Robinson have won over 100 awards at every major show, including most recently at the Campaign Big Awards where their "Emojis" work for McDonald’s picked up a gold.

Tindall had hired the pair in 2014 at Leo Burnett from DDB Chicago, where they spent four years and created a Super Bowl ad, a music video for Temptations All Natural Cat Treats, and won over 20 awards, including D&AD and Cannes Lions for Skittles and Milky Way.

The duo, who join M&C Saatchi as creative directors, started their careers at J Walter Thompson and then CHI & Partners, where they won accolades including D&AD yellow pencils for The Sunday Times' Rich List and TalkTalk.

Tindall said: "Great teams do great, awarded work in every agency they work at. Matt and Wayne exemplify this and I am delighted that they have chosen to join us at M&C Saatchi."
