This creative, entrepreneurial and genuinely driven duo have won a stack of creative awards
Jane Burhop & James Crawley
At age 24, Jane & James, along with two other partners, started an advertising agency. With zero clients, no external investment and nothing but a kitchen table and 4 laptops – Common Ventures was born.
Functioning still as an entirely independent entity, Common Ventures has been open for over 4 years and employs nearly 20 full-time staff.
Adopting an ethos of being strategically curious and creatively rebellious, every day at Common Ventures is vastly different. Testing their intelligence and sanity, Jane & James step in and out of creative, strategic and business focused roles on a daily basis.
While the focus for this team has been building one of Australia’s most exciting agencies – this creative, entrepreneurial and genuinely driven duo have won a stack of creative awards, were 2 of the 5 winners from last year’s B&T ‘30 under 30’ award and have appeared on Gruen. Jane was recently recognised as 1 of 5 finalists for the nationwide ‘Women in Media’ award, and the youngest female member to ever take up a position on the prestigious AWARD Council.
