Andy Spade and Anthony Sperduti could be called an art director/copywrting team. But they are best descirbed as creative tycoons.
As Partners & Spade they have built Kate Spade, and Jack Spade, revamped J. Crew, reintroduced Boast all with a decidedly alternative approach to commercial marketing.
Rather than advertising guys or "Mad Men" they've been called masters of the public spectacle and prominent NYC tastemakers.
Andy and Anthony are featured in the first episode of League of Two on VBS, a show profiling some of the most successful collaborators in the worlds of film, photography, business, sports, music and art.
The idea behind League of Two is to profile some of today’s most creative and gifted duos that may fly below the radar to many people, but all are well regarded in their industries. The series is sponsored by 42BELOW vodka.
Other Duos to be profiled include Duckie Brown (designers of menswear line Duckie Brown) / Bompas & Par (culinary mad scientists) / YACHT (electro-pop band) / Roman + William (interior mastermind designers), Chromeo (Arab/Jewish collaboration of electrofunk).
