MY NAME IS DAVE LADD AND I AM A CREATIVE DIRECTOR.
Sometime this century, I sold the Australian sky for the Royal Flying Doctors, lost my beatbox virginity with Reggie Watts, and listed an IKEA store on Airbnb. I thought pink lycra was a good fit for rugby fans, and an iconic boot fit for all. I was awarded globally for some of those efforts——and labeled #totesinappropes for others. I also came third in a rap battle. Well, equal third.
After hours, my wife Stephanie and I became the confusingly-named creative duo He She It They I. and parents to two pesky kids. In 2016 we published our first children’s book——Animals Are Delicious——with Phaidon in New York.
Then, we moved to California, where I work for arguably the world’s most recognised company——named for easily the world’s most recognised fruit.
