The Monkeys Appoints New Creative Director Thomas Marcusson

Award winning interactive artist Thomas Marcusson has been appointed creative director at The Monkeys, part of Accenture Interactive.

With Swedish origins and a career spanning Sydney, Auckland, Oslo, Paris and London, Marcusson is deeply interested in how technology meshes with culture and how that shift can be utilised in brand communications.

Commenting on his new appointment, Marcusson says: “Being part of the wider Accenture Interactive family allows us to explore new digital opportunities and ideas while keeping creativity and culture close to heart, which is what attracted me to the role in the first place.”

“I’m super excited to find myself amongst The Monkeys’ ranks and I’m keen to apply some of my experimental practices to the agency arsenal.”

A recipient of major industry awards from Cannes, Clio’s and the Effie Awards, Marcusson is behind globally celebrated work including the Australian Tennis Open App, the Best Ball Boys in the World, Snapchat Scholarships and the Nissan Pay with Energy Café.

Marcusson is also a tech-based artist whose work is regularly displayed in New York, London and Paris. His next installation, DJ Moss, is set to show at RMIT Gallery in Melbourne.

The Monkeys executive creative director, Vince Lagana, adds: “We are very pleased to welcome Thomas to our creative team. On top of his impressive track record of globally celebrated campaigns, his credentials as an interactive artist means he also brings a fresh digital perspective to our team and clients.

“Not only does Thomas know his craft, he is also constantly experimenting with creating work that lives at the intersection of culture and tech. I can’t wait to see what he can do here at The Monkeys.”
