Christian & Patrick
Christian & Patrick are a directing duo. They met in architecture school and left with a VHS tape as a portfolio, which they toured around the record labels of bands they loved. They set up a company called Lynn Fox and created weird animations for bands like FC Kahuna, Chris Clark and Incubus, all produced on home-built computers set up in a small spare bedroom. They went on to have a long running collaboration with Björk, making music videos and concert graphics for her. One of their pieces featured at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Olympic Games, held in Athens and watched globally by many millions of people.
As Christian & Patrick, they have had a long and successful career directing TV commercials around the world for companies such as Mercedes, Axe, Dulux, Thomas Cook, Audi, Californian Lotto, Goodyear and Lexus. They have scooped many awards, including D&AD Pencils, British Arrows, BTAA and Cannes Titanium Award among others.
