It’s a world premiere!” proudly says Christian Penichou, Executive Creative Director at Billy & The Kid.

TVcommercials, viral videos, outdoors, newspaper and magazines, we even created a mobile app and augmented reality press ads. We were literally everywhere!”explains Jonathan Lereculeur, Executive Creative Director at Billy & The Kid.
