BWM Dentsu has strengthened its creative credentials with the recent appointment of two new hires to help lead its creative department.

Award-winning creatives Jon Foye (right in photo) and Denny Handlin have joined as head of art and creative group head respectively. Asheen Naidu, BWM Dentsu ECD, said he was looking forward to working with Jon and Denny.

“We’re very excited to welcome Jon and Denny to the BWM Dentsu family. They both bring a wealth of experience to the team and have a very unique way of looking at things, which is evident in the great work they’ve produced over the years. I have no doubt that with Jon and Denny on board, we will be able to take our creative product to the next level,” Asheen said.

Foye joins BWM Dentsu from MJW, where he worked on the awarded NRL ‘State of Mind’ campaign. Denny joins from Clemenger BBDO Sydney, where he worked on the successful Whiskas ‘Catstacam’ campaign and the most recent Tourism Australia campaign.

Together, Foye and Handlin’s work has been recognised at nearly every major ad award show, with their portfolio spanning a number of iconic brands, including McDonalds, Virgin Australia, Canon, Foxtel, Coca Cola, IBM, Pepsi co and Diageo.

In his spare time, Foye is also an acclaimed children’s picture book illustrator. Last year he was awarded Best-Designed Children’s Illustrated Book at the 2015 Australian Book Design Awards for the successful ‘Mike I Don’t Like’ picture book.

Denny said it was a no-brainer to join BWM Dentsu.

“We’re incredibly excited to be joining the team at BWM Dentsu. Both Ash and Alex Carr are super smart, creative, passionate, and have a real vision for where the agency is going. We can’t wait to get started. We’re also pumped about working together. Handlin and Foye…it’s got a nice ring to it. Kind of sounds like a grand piano manufacturing company,” Denny said.
