Wayne and Kim Pick (pictured), widely regarded as New Zealand’s leading direct creative team, are leaving Tequila to join Rapp Collins Limb Walker as Executive Creative Director and Head of Copy respectively.
They join a third top direct creative Jason Hall, who comes onboard with RCLW in Wellington as Creative Director.
Rapp Collins Limb Walker managing partner Robert Limb described the trio of appointments as ‘cornerstones of our agency development’: “We’ve determinedly set out to recruit the best talent around, and that’s taken some time,” he explained. “We’re thrilled that Wayne, Kim and Jason will drive our creative offering. It’s all part of our strategy to produce the best work in the market and offer the best workplace for the country’s brightest DM talents.”
The move comes on the heels of Rapp Collins Limb Walker’s recent wins of the Telecom and ANZ DM accounts.
For the past three years Wayne Pick has headed up the Tequila\Auckland office, while Kim Pick joined as Head of Copy in 2005. She previously spent five years at Saatchi & Saatchi in London where she was a Regional Creative Director. Wayne Pick was Creative Director of Tequila\Singapore and Creative Partner and Head of Art at Tequila\London.
Jason Hall moves to Rapp Collins Limb Walker after seven years at Senior Art Director at AIM Proximity. Prior to AIM he worked for Tequila in London.
While Hall has already started in Rapp Collins Limb Walker's Wellington office, the Picks are due to join RCLW in Auckland by early October.

Rapp Collins Limb Walker is such a long name - why don't they just call it AIM 2007 Ltd ?

Nice call.

But the move actually comes on the heels of Telecom saying "we'll take you thanks DDB but your DM creative sucks. Please buy that guy from the other agency will you?"

All DM creative suck- they are the bottom feeders, who should buy a razor & become 'suits' or 'channel planners'.

Kim you might regret this one - I hear that Telecom likes to write its own copy - you'll be wishing you were back doing Adidas and ASB work...

Someone needs to write some bloody copy for the headline to this post. Any one of you Ad School grads care to post a correct version?

Who cares what's written. You just put it in a box with a $2 piece of tat and call it genius.

Hey 9.55, you're onto it. All you have to do is put some tat in a box and the job's done. Why not try that and claim a nice fat salary? Money for old rope.

At Telecom they think they know it all, so adding that client to your list is not someone to be proud of as some 21 year old spreadsheet makers is writing copy too as the sheets say that it is a lot of money for 7500 characters;)

we had a telecom client - not big enough to call the shots but big enough to be a pain in the arse - who would look at our work then go away for an hour, play on coreldraw (certificate in desktop publishing), and hey presto!!!!!!!! print ads ready to goll!!!!!!!!
