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.

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.
