In their roles as associate creative directors, Donaghey and Joakim will be primarily focused on the agency’s recent account gain – Philips.
The pair have won many awards, most notably multiple Lion wins for their work on Skittles ‘Touch the Rainbow’ and FedEx, which include two Gold Lions and a Bronze in 2011 and, most recently, another Bronze win for their Skittles ‘Touch the Untouchable’ campaign in 2012.
Gerry Human, Executive Creative Director, Ogilvy & Mather Advertising said of the new hires, ‘Mike and Chris are an energetic and hungry team who have proven they can produce world-class ideas, so I have no doubt they will make a great contribution to our team here in London.’
Adds Donaghey/Joakim, ‘We’re really excited to be joining Gerry’s team here in London. We’ve built our careers on producing effective, award-winning work for our clients and the chance to continue doing that in the greatest city in the world is an opportunity we couldn’t pass up.’
