The Monkeys adds creative director duo, Daniel Fryer and Stuart Alexander, to team

The Monkeys has named award-winning duo Daniel Fryer and Stuart Alexander as co-creative directors.

The pair has worked together for over a decade on campaigns including the Royal Automobile Club’s The Attention Powered Car, eco-tourism initiative The Palau Pledge and The Royal Australian Air Force Recruitment campaign. For Samsung, they also created Luna Park Facelift, a campaign during Vivid which allowed people to beam their face onto the iconic Luna Park via their phone.

“Dan and Stu are a standout creative team responsible for some of the industry’s most breakthrough work,” said ECD Vince Lagana.

“Humanising the airforce, changing the face of Luna Park 17,000 times and rewriting a country’s immigration laws; needless to say, we’re excited to have them on board.”

Fryer and Alexander were previously creative group heads at Leo Burnett and Host/Havas, and have together won more than 100 awards.

Lizzie Wood is also joining the agency as a copywriter, having moved into advertising after starting out in business development. She joins from The Works, where she was a creative working on clients such as Peugeot and Amgen.

Lagana said of Wood’s appointment: “We are very pleased to welcome Lizzie to the team, and after looking for the right person to fill this role for some time, we are grateful to have found her.”
