Engagement marketing agency, Banter, has hired Patrick Rutkowski as Creative Technologist, to further bolster the digital and innovation side of the business.
Rutkowski joins Banter after having spent the last five and a half years at independent creative agency, The Hallway where he was most recently creative technologist working with the likes of Rheem, Tourism Fiji and Google.
Rutkowski is a digital native and constant tinkerer in the tech space.
In addition to his work at The Hallway he has dabbled in various side projects including a VR website, AR art gallery, VR film, cryptocurrency web app, NFT’s, machine learning demos, and a suicide prevention platform – to name a few.
Rutkowski arrives at a time of growth for Banter, with the agency having recently created digital experiences, products and campaigns for the likes of Priceline, Volkswagen and Lurpak.
Rutkowski said, “I’m thrilled to join the Banter team working on cutting edge digital experiences. It’s awesome to see Banter’s focus on providing smart technical solutions to solve client problems in an impactful and meaningful way. A Creative Technologist bridges the gap between the technology and the creative sector and I’m excited to be able to bring this element to the amazing team at Banter.”
Paul Den, co-founder at Banter said, “we’re stoked that Pat has decided to join the Banter family. People like him are a rare breed. He has the perfect balance of creativity and technical literacy and is passionate about using technology to help brands create meaningful conversations.”
