"This is an amazing honor. What makes Jeff and me most proud is that we’ve provided a respectful space for so many talented people to make intelligent work, raise families and have fun all at the same time."
“I’ve met the best people in the world [at Cannes Lions] and hired many of them actually!”
“This festival celebrates [creative] endeavour and it’s a blessing to have it in our midst.”
“There was a time when clients were suspicious of winning awards [at Cannes Lions]. But now they come here and they see great work and go away and do great work.”
“I want clients to go [to Cannes Lions] and be jealous and go ‘I want that kind of work’.”
“We are paid to observe and appreciate our lives. And that’s what we do. It’s amazing.”
“Creativity is everything. It just fuels the good things in life.”
“We still want to do better work than we’ve ever done. It’s crazy but I think that feeds us.”
Jeff and Rich will take part in an interview hosted by Philip Thomas during the Festival in Cannes, and the presentation of the Lion of St. Mark will take place during the final Awards Show on Friday 21 June.
