FEMALE SAATCHI TEAM SNARED BY FACKRELL - HEADING FOR 180 AMSTERDAM


Saatchi & Saatchi Mid weight creative team Rosita Rawnsley- Mason and Stacey Lee have been signed by Kiwi expat Andy Fackrell, ECD of one of the world's hottest shops, 180 Amsterdam, the agency in charge of Adidas worldwide and now Sony. Fackrell is currently in NZ and obviously is not here just to see his folks.
Rosita Rawnsley-Mason and Stacey Lee have been teamed for a year. They picked up a Cannes Silver Lion for their Finding Nemo DM piece, an Axis award, a Gong and were runner’s up in the Fairfax Young Creative Competition in 2006.
As a team their work has been featured in Campaign Brief, Shots, Ad Media, Best of Direct Marketing 2006 and they are soon to have two pieces published in The Work ’06.
Outside of work, Rosita is a fine artist working towards her first solo exhibition later this year. Stacey is passionate about dance and has choreographed and performed to national level in numerous competitions, productions and stage shows. Together they also team up outside of work to collaborate on a number of projects including a children’s book as well as other design initiatives.
The pair follow in the footsteps of Matty Burton and Dave Bowman, another Saatchi team who have headed for the big time. In the latter's case, it was to join Droga 5 in New York.
It is believed Saatchi's has employed a top creative team from Australia, and other key appointments, which may be announced later today.
