Emotive Appoints Creative Director Kat Topp & Promotes Amanda Alegre To Senior Art Director

Independent creative agency Emotive today announces the appointment of creative director Kat Topp and promotion of Amanda Alegre to senior art director. 

Topp (pictured above to the right) joins Emotive having previously held a creative director role at One Green Bean and freelanced for some of the best agencies in the world. Topp says, “I particularly love looking at briefs through an earned and social lens. I love making advertising for people who hate it.” That approach has seen Topp launch an award-winning fashion platform; create a life-saving eHealth initiative in East Africa; dabble in domestic erotic fiction; explore snow addiction with Olympic athletes; make toilet cleaner fancy as fuck; and form a choir with real garbos of Sydney.

Topp also tutors AWARD School and has been a speaker at Free The Bid’s 2018 female director intensive course the Academy of Film, Television and Theatre.

Topp said: As a highly emotive creature myself I’m overjoyed to be joining such a special agency. The abundance of incredible opportunities, brilliant brands and exceptionally clever and kind humans makes Emotive a dream creative home – especially since it’s based in a pimped-out beach HQ.”

Emotive has also promoted Amanda Alegre (on the left in the cover image) to senior art director. Alegre has been responsible for some incredible work across multiple clients, tutored AWARD School and was behind the Postpartum Embodied campaign for Modibodi, which was shortlisted at both D&AD and The One Show.

This follows the announcement of seven new hires across the agency in May. 

Michael Hogg, managing partner Emotive said: Great creative work comes from working with great creative people, so we couldn’t be happier to welcome Kat and congratulate Amanda on her promotion. Anyone who’s worked with Kat previously knows she’s one of a kind and that we’re getting one of the best. With our Coogee office now open and more hires to come, I’m excited about the creative culture we’re building and the work that we’ll make over the next 12 months.”
