Sydney digital agency Holler has recruited two digital natives, Fergus Cahill and Nikola Spadina as the company’s new Creative Leads.
Cahill and Spadina first began collaborating together over four-years ago. Both individually, and combined the two have forged a growing reputation for innovative, adventurous and avant-garde thinking.
Cahill founded creative collective Manual in 2009, and has worked in a diverse range of capacities since then. In 2013 Cahill was selected as one of Australian Creative’s ‘Power Top 20’ and is regarded by his peers as someone who “navigates the interstitial space between traditional and digital media”.
Cahill’s says of his decision to join the Holler team: “I’ve been a fan of Holler’s for some time. The vision and empowerment management have offered Nik and I is extremely encouraging and I’m looking forward to helping create beautiful work.”
Not to be outdone, Spadina brings to Holler unparalleled uniqueness. Whether it be living with hippies in Mexico; creating cinema pieces for Yoko Ono with the MCA; lecturing at UTS whilst studying post-graduate Psychology; doing it differently is just who Nikola is. Of his move to the agency, Spadina says: “Holler’s shown us what the outliers are capable of, and I’m looking forward to pushing the boundaries even further with brave thinking.”
James Theophane, Holler’s creative director, says of Spadina’s and Cahill’s addition to the team: “I’m super excited for Nik and Fergus to be part of the next phase of our evolution. Their potent, exciting and unorthodox partnership is not only a perfect fit for the Holler way of working, but a boon for our culture.”
