Will Winter-Irving and Pat Anderson, fresh from winning the prestigious Spikes Asia Young Creative Team of the Year, have joined the WiTH Collective creative team.
The highly-sought after young team cut their teeth at R/GA, working across key brands such as Telstra, Google and Samsung.
Their win at Spikes, a highly competitive pitch competition, saw them named as the brightest young digital creative team in Asia.
Steve Coll, With Collective chief creative officer, said, “We try and hire the best and brightest ahead of the curve, and I certainly believe that’s the case with Will and Pat. They are incredibly innovative thinkers, wonderful human beings, and a perfect cultural fit for the agency.
“I believe they’ll seize the opportunity and continue their rapid rise. They also join an agency with great talent across every department, where they have the chance to collaborate with some incredibly smart UX designers and devs.”
Will and Pat said, “We’re delighted to join WiTH and we are excited about the move. We enjoyed a great start at R/GA, and we’d particularly like to thank Gav and Hamish for their guidance and support.
“But it felt like the right time for a move, and we couldn’t turn down the opportunity to join Steve and the talented team at WiTH. It’s an agency with an eye on the future and we’re looking forward to being part of the journey.”
Justin Hind, WiTH Collective CEO added, “Will and Pat are future thinkers, and we’re very pleased they’ve joined our talented team. It’s part of our mission to shape an agency built for the future, not the past. The team will be a great cultural fit and we welcome them warmly.”
