His work has been recognized with numerous awards, including at the 2013 CASSIES for Ikea in Quebec’s “Moving Day” campaign with Leo Burnett, where he led overall strategic planning for Ikea.

    Da Silva has worked at agencies including MacLaren McCann, Tribal DDB and Proximity/BBDO and was most recently with Mullen in Boston. He was ranked fourth on strategy‘s 2012 Creative Report Card art directors list.

    Hardwicke has 20 years of experience in the communication industry working on both the client and agency side, including a brand director role at Hudson’s Bay Company and most recently the position of business director at Perennial Design.
