Combining the skills and talents of Tessa Doniga Johnson and Paula Martin-Ferro, XOXO is a powerhouse female directing duo.
Johnson comes from the world of Fine Art Photography. With Fine Art background she is defined by composition, sharp colors, slow motion: her work is entirely orchestrated to catch our hungry gaze for a treasure of ideas. Obsessed with detail, Tessa hypnotizes the viewer through transitions and different camera angles.
Martin-Ferro’s background is in editing and narrative. She is defined by pure emotion filled with sensations, engaging the viewers she makes them travel through intense actings bringing magic realism to all her visuals. She is a beauty seeker and narrative lover.
XOXO have created work for global brands including Target, Ikea, LG, Sephora, Beefeater Gin, and Vogue, to name a few. Most recently, XOXO helmed a six spot campaign for Meta.
