Creative communications agency, Precinct, has appointed creative, Philip McDougall as chief creative officer, a new role responsible for nurturing the agency’s ideas-lead culture, building strategic partnerships with clients and delivering compelling world-class creative solutions.

Previously, McDougall was an international-award-winning executive creative director at brand experience agency, Jack Morton Worldwide New York. Prior to that, he spent more than a decade at the creative helm of Jack Morton Worldwide in Australia. Working across these roles, his clients included Samsung, Optus, Walmart, Dell, Qantas, IBM, Microsoft, and L’Oréal to name just a few.

Most recently McDougall has been freelancing globally, providing strategic direction and creative ideas for communications and advertising agencies in New Zealand, Australia, Asia, North America and Europe.

“I was lucky enough to work with the team at Precinct while freelancing, and was really excited by the energy of the agency, and the passion it has for creating truly authentic and innovative marketing communication campaigns that challenge convention. I’m absolutely rapt to be able to come on board fulltime,” said McDougall.

Jaime Nelson, managing director of Precinct said, “Philip is a creative force that represents the future of Precinct and we are thrilled to have him join the team. Working with the wider company, he will be tasked with ensuring we push creative and communication boundaries with world-class ideas that will help realise our clients’ ambitions.”

McDougall’s appointment marks further strengthening of the agency’s creative team that has significantly expanded this year as the agency continues to grow. McDougall joins the creative team in Precinct’s Melbourne office, which also includes senior creative director, Chris Wright, motion graphics designer, John Angless, and recently-arrived graphic designer, Darcy O’Connor.

Precinct’s Sydney office, anchored by executive creative director, Mick Thorp, has recently welcomed former UK-based brand and digital design director, Mike Thompson, who will work alongside design director, Sarah Magro, as part of the agency’s award-winning integrated communications team.

“Mike’s experience designing and launching brands, as well as creating digital and physical environments ensures our team will continue to deliver compelling and memorable communication experiences no matter the discipline or platform,” said Thorp.
