DDB Deputy CDs - first picture

This just in from Mango, DDB's PR unit. Reported Monday on this blog and CB.


DDB New Zealand has appointed Cannes Gold Lion winners Bridget Short and Regan Grafton joint Deputy Creative Directors.

The pair was responsible for the multi-award winning ambient and web campaign for nzgirl (Worst Boyfriend) including a Gold Lion in the Direct category at the 2005 Cannes advertising awards and Best in Show at last year’s Axis NZ creative awards.

Paul Catmur, DDB’s Executive Creative Director, says the appointment is in recognition of their consistent efforts across a number of clients including Durex, Hasbro, ACP magazines, nzgirl, Child Cancer Foundation and McDonald's.

“They are fun to have around, hungry to do great work, fully grasp integration and have the potential to go far. While I don't want to inhibit their ability to produce more great work, promotion gives them the chance to develop their leadership skills,” Paul says.

Bridget Short and Regan Grafton joined DDB in 2000 and 2003 respectively.
