Chris and Aaron – or ‘Aaron and Chris’ if you ask Aaron – are a senior team from Melbourne, Australia. Together they’ve created original, memorable and influential work for local and global brands, published in The Huffington Post, The Guardian, AdWeek and Contagious Magazine.
Since joining from TBWA in 2012, Cummins & Partners has grown from 40 to 120 people on the back of over 30 new business wins, with Chris and Aaron regularly on the pointy end of the creative pitchfork.
A buoyant spirit in pitches (the result of both their dedication and high MSG levels) has seen wins for Nike, Jeep, John West and Specsavers, to name a few (list below). Their contribution has led the agency towards back-to-back Adnews and B&T Australian Agency of the Year titles. They've also had a hand in producing some of the most effective work in the region, acknowledged four times at the Effies.

Their work has been recognised at major award shows including the inaugural Clio Grand Prix (Direct) for sports advertising, Cannes Lions, NY Festivals, LIA, Young Guns, Effies, Spikes, AWARD and 16 nods at Commercial Radio Australia’s Siren Awards, among others. Oh, and Chris took out 'Best Dressed' at the Ringwood Bush Dance in 1984 – all the biggies.
Chris and Aaron tutored the country’s preeminent creative advertising course, AWARD School, three years running. One year boasting the winner and five students in the top 10. Chris has lectured students in the RMIT Advertising Masters Program, and Aaron in ADMA Creative School. Chris is a Melbourne Advertising and Design Club committee member.
While they take pride in these achievements, it's business results they're most proud of. Like reversing the flailing fortunes of Australia’s former suburban bourbon, convincing more kids to pick up a tennis racquet than a Gameboy (do they still use those?) and helping an A4 office paper brand trend on Twitter.
Pitches won: 
Kraft Heinz, Jeep, Specsavers, Reflex Paper, Simplot (John West, Chiko Roll), Chobani, Tennis Australia, Nike, Care Australia, Home Timber & Hardware, McCain, Medibank, Betstar, Dairy Australia, Spring Racing Carnival.
