Creative communications agency, Precinct, has appointed creative, Philip McDougall as chief creative officer, a new role responsible for nurturing the agency’s ideas-lead culture, building strategic partnerships with clients and delivering compelling world-class creative solutions.

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.
