DDB Sydney has appointed senior creatives Tim Woolford (left in photo) and Tommy Cehak (right), adding to its award-winning team.
Both Woolford and Cehak have numerous Cannes Lions, D&AD pencils, AWARD awards, One Show pencils and Effies, along with a stack of other awards, under their belts.
Cehak has previously worked at The Royals, Droga5, Saatchi & Saatchi, and M&C Saatchi, across an eclectic mix of brands from Tiger Beer and Toyota to Nicabate and EMI. He joins DDB Sydney as senior art director.
“I’m delighted to join the DDB Sydney team. I’ve fond memories of Ben (Welsh, CCO) from early in my career, and all the great things I’ve heard about Tara (Ford, ECD) check out. So I’m excited to see what creative mischief Tim and I can get up to on the terrific list of clients we have over here,” Cehak said.
Originally from New Zealand, Woolford is a senior creative who began his advertising career in 2012 in Melbourne after finishing top of his class at AWARD School. He spent nearly five years at TBWA, including working out of the Los Angeles and London offices, working across clients including Medibank, Nissan, Origin Energy, The Age, Twitter, Lidl, Apple, Schweppes, and ANZ Bank.
DDB Chief Creative Officer Ben Welsh said he’s excited to have Cehak and Woolford on the team.
“These two are great at creating the sort of work that underpins our belief in delivering growth for our clients, through ideas that deliver fame, feeling and fluency. Not only are they very talented, they’re a pleasure to work with,” Welsh said.
