[LISTEN] Donovan Goliath and Davina Mae Gordon on creating under lockdown
Donovan Goliath and Davina Mae Gordon are some of the creatives who have made the lockdown that much more bearable by entertaining social media users with the ad-like content and a few violin performances.
The couple joined Azania Mosaka on her show to talk about their creative process.
These are things that we have been speaking about for a very long time, mot necessarily this campaign - just about creating more but time was never on our side so we never actually made time to do any of this, so this was the perfect moment to really express who we are as creatives.Donovan Goliath, Comedian and creative
The way we come up with these ideas is - we make two columns, the one column we write down every word affiliated with the COVID pandemic and then we have a second column where we write down all fashion brands that are top of mind and then we find a common link between the two of them .... and that is how the joke is essentially formed.Donovan Goliath, Comedian and creative

I come from a very strict classical background, I have played in orchestra's in Cape Town and in Johannesburg and ever since I left the field, I have been on my own, doing my own thing and that has given me the biggest motivation to find my own voice.Davina Mae Gordon, Classical violinist and creative
