W+K London is happy to announce the hiring of Creatives Dave Goss and Ollie Wolf from Saatchi & Saatchi and Jonny Plackett from BETC London.
Plackett is joining as a senior creative and will work across all our clients, with a particular focus on integrated and interactive projects.
Graeme Douglas, Head of Interactive at W+K, said “we're delighted Jonny is joining us. Today many claim not to draw a distinction between analogue and digital in their work, but a precious few actually deliver ideas that substantiate this. With a traditional creative background fused with self-taught coding ability – a thinker and a doer – Jonny's at the forefront of this group, and we can't wait for him to join us on our quest to push our clients further, faster”
Whilst at BETC, he launched TheArtistifier.com which makes any YouTube video instantly award-winning, and won Campaign's Daredevil competition last month with the world's first flammable banner for Cockburn. Before then he worked at Albion for 6 years, creating the popular website Slapometer.com, encouraging voters to slap their least favorite politician, and CuervoCold.com, a live OKGO gig made out of the profiles of people tweeting about it.
Wolf and Goss join W+K from Saatchi & Saatchi and will work across all accounts as a creative team. They previously created global work for Visa, including its “Team GB” spot, as well as the launch for last year’s San Miguel campaign, “A life well lived.” They were campaign faces to watch in 2011 and Diageo scholarship winners before that. Prior to Saatchi's they worked at DHM for 3 years.
