David Povill and Dave Cuccinello, or “The Daves,” as they are affectionately known, are a creative director duo with more than three decades of combined experience. Besides sharing the same name, they also drive the same car, wear the same sneakers, and share a passion for solving complex business problems with smart, elegant creative solutions. The two first met while working on opposite sides of a wall at David&Goliath, where Cuccinello was an ACD on KIA, creating two Super Bowl spots (“Joyride” and “One Epic Ride”), and was, regrettably, largely responsible for the birth of the KIA hamsters. After parting ways, Povill worked at Deutsch LA, where he created “The Force” for Volkswagen, before spending 3 years at Wieden + Kennedy’s Portland office, working on clients such as Dodge, Chrysler, and Facebook, and won a Cannes Gold Lion for his “Smellcome to Manhood” campaign for Old Spice. Meanwhile, Cuccinello worked as a GCD at Grey NY, leading Crown Royal, Canon, and Volvo. His Canon spot, “Inspired,” won him an Emmy for Best Commercial. The duo reunited at 180LA in early 2015, where they run ASICS and UNICEF. Their “Unfairy Tales” campaign for UNICEF, highlighting the plight faced by refugee children, picked up a Grand Prix for Good at Cannes, and they were recently named to Adweek’s Creative 100 list.
