Paper Moose has appointed Jeremy Willmott and Kate Holdsworth as creative directors, reflecting a stronger focus on conceptual creative capabilities at the agency.
Nick Hunter, chief executive and co-founder at Paper Moose, said: “It’s been an exciting decade of constantly evolving and reinventing how we can affect change through purpose-driven advertising.
I am thrilled for Jeremy and Kate to be leading the creative output at this critical junction in the company’s evolution, bringing with them a wealth of experience that reflects the creative/production hybrid approach we are finding incredibly effective for our clients and partners.”
Willmott made the move to Sydney from the UK in early 2016.
He brings with him fifteen years’ experience working at some of London’s best digital and integrated agencies where his work has been recognised by The Webbys, Lovies, FWA, NMA, One Show and Revolution awards.
After four years as creative director at The Hallway for clients such as ANZ, Google and Dexus, he’s made the move to Paper Moose where he’s excited to play a role in building the creative department and pushing for effective, purposeful and engaging work.
Holdsworth has been promoted after leading winning pitches and campaign work for clients including felix mobile (TPG telecom), University of Technology Sydney, Bushells, Jimmy Brings and EPA.
She joined Paper Moose two years ago and was a key player in helping Paper Moose transform into the full service creative agency it is today.
Previously at M&C Saatchi and Special Group Australia, her work has been recognised at shows including Cannes and One Show.
The growth of the agency has seen a number of new hires in the creative department, with Lucy Walker joining as creative services director, Katie McIntyre as art director, Pete Saladino as copywriter and Jason Fidel as junior designer.
Georgia Shillington has also been promoted to design lead.
