Special New Zealand, Creative Director

David Shirley is a Creative Director and Copywriter whose work has run the gamut from surreal to “what the f*@k was that?!”
Always provocative and intriguing, Shirley’s campaigns have included a memory removal service for young drinkers, a world-famous social influencer who also happens to be Death, a highly seductive take on syphilis and a tense story that encourages everyone to get in touch with their inner-meerkats. For his efforts, his work has been recognised pretty much anywhere you care to mention – D&AD, Cannes Lions, The One Show, AWARD, Axis, Effies, and by his mum, who’s “super proud”.
