Gavin Gordon-Rogers joins Wieden + Kennedy London on 7th March as Interactive Creative Director – working across all our clients as appropriate – but also specifically working with Nokia globally. Gavin will report in to current ICD Andy Cameron and ECD Tony Davidson.
At Wieden + Kennedy, we believe that we need a true interactive dimension to our entire creative output. Gavin will contribute to every account, as appropriate, building our 360 advertising and communication function, with digital and social media at its centre.
Gav’s career began with directing music videos, for the likes of Paul McCartney, Feeder and Belle & Sebastian, before getting nominated for a best direction Bafta.
He then got into advertising by freelancing at numerous well-respected, traditional advertising agencies from 1996, until he joined glue in 2002, along with his wife & creative partner Gemma. In March 2005 they moved to Agency Republic, where they reinvigorated the creative department and oversaw its expansion.
In February 2007 they both became joint Creative Directors of Agency Republic. Gav became Executive Creative Director the following year. Agency Republic was named Digital Agency of the Year 2006 by Campaign magazine and Digital Agency of the Year 2008 by Marketing magazine.
Gavin says, ‘Wieden + Kennedy is one of the best agencies in the world, packed full of inspiring, talented people. The potential for us to create amazing work across all media is huge. I'm really excited to be helping to push the scope of digital at the agency and I can't wait to get cracking.”
