303 MullenLowe has promoted Sean Larkin and Adam Whitehead as creative directors, reporting to Richard Morgan, executive creative director.
Larkin joined 303 MullenLowe as head of copy in 2012, followed by Whitehead as head of art in 2013. Together, they have helped to craft some of the agency’s most notable campaigns for clients including Budget Direct, Harley-Davidson and Audi Australia.
“Sean and Adam have proven time and again that they are world-class creatives. They’ve both played an important role in the agency’s growth over the past two years and their commitment to ideas and craft never ceases to impress. With the continued growth of the agency, no one is better suited to help lead the creative department,” said Morgan.
Prior to joining 303 MullenLowe, Larkin held senior creative roles at Publicis Mojo (Sydney and Melbourne), Banjo and Walsh Trott Chick Smith (London). Whitehead has previously worked at Publicis Mojo, Clemenger BBDO and Saatchi & Saatchi.
303 MullenLowe has also promoted Joe Van Trump to creative group head, Audi Australia. Van Trump joined the agency in mid-2016 as a Senior Copywriter. “Audi has been moving from strength to strength in this market and Joe’s appointment as dedicated Group Head leading this account will ensure we build on these successes into the new year,” says Morgan.
303 MullenLowe has also recently added four new creatives to its Sydney department: Leila Cranswick, art director; Molly Cathcart, copywriter Anna Farrell; and art director and designer Davina Milne.
Cranswick, Farrell and Cathcart are all AWARD School graduates of 2016. Cranswick was a top-10 student, while Farrell and Cathcart teamed up after partnering on freelance projects. Cranswick joins the industry following eight years working as a freelance photographer in Hong Kong, Dubai and Santiago, Chile.
“All of these promotions and new appointments are part of a wider restructure driven by agency growth and our commitment to working with people who are as fun to work with as they are talented,” says Morgan.
