 It's the work, stupid.

ARMOURY BRING IN THE BIG GUNS.
11 December 2018

Production company Armoury added some serious ammunition to their offer when Matt Hichens and Nicci Clark join the team earlier this year, and they're already feeling the benefits.

Co-founder Jack Laurance describes the new arrivals as "hugely exciting" while Hichens reports that: "it's great to be working with talented people who love what they do."

Hichens has already made his mark at Armoury, producing work for Converse, Samsung, Carlsberg, Star Alliance and 3 Mobile. Given his experience, it isn't surprising that he's proving to be such an asset and his presence significantly elevates Armoury's standing in the industry.


Matt is a remarkable talent and has delivered a number of very successful projects for us in the last few months. Joining forces with Matt is hugely exciting for the team here as we make plans for the next stage of Armoury's journey.

The other new recruit - Nicci Clark - also brings her impressive A-Game to Armoury. A highly experienced and hugely likeable New Business Director, she was most recently at Black Label where she helped deliver Matthew Vaughn's 'Awaken The Phantom' film for Nike, and the epic 'Tale of Thomas Burberry' which was directed by Asif Kapadia.

Welcoming Clark, Clare Gibson - co-founder and producer said: "Nicci has a strong reputation across the industry, a great eye for talent and was recently voted one of the top 100 women in advertising by Pitch magazine. We're very lucky to have her join our growing team."

To congratulate Nicci on her new role and to ask about the offer at Armoury, contact her on 07710 073116 or via email using nicci@armourylondon.com or take a look at Armoury's website: https://www.armourylondon.com/.
