“I’m delighted to be joining 31ST:SECOND – an agency which is highly creative, smart and savvy. There are some integral campaigns planned for 2015 that will really showcase what the agency is capable of strategically and creatively – I’m excited to be part of this,” said Taby Taylor-Ziane.
Newly appointed art director Malcolm Gray who has previously worked as head of art at The Collaborative Agency and BADJAR Ogilvy Melbourne will also lead new business development at 31ST:SECOND.
“You would struggle to find a bunch of more talented and hilarious people than the team at 31ST:SECOND. Joining these guys is like being picked for the top team in the competition, except you never thought it would be so much fun,” Malcolm Gray said.
Executive creative director at 31ST:SECOND, Rachael Egan said: “We are extremely excited to have Taby and Malcolm on-board as part of the 31ST:SECOND team. We are confident Taby has the talent and experience to make a difference to our offering, and we’re looking forward to Malcolm strengthening our current and prospective clients and brands.”
Both appointments are effective immediately.
