Think Jam, the entertainment-marketing agency servicing clients in the UK and US, has boosted its creative studio’s capabilities with the appointment of a Creative Operations Director, ten new hires, together with eleven promotions for existing people in the studio and production teams across both the UK and US offices, after a number of international new project wins for the agency’s creative department.
Think Jam’s creative services team are a leader in digital advertising services and social content creation, with recent campaigns including eOne’s The BFG, Twentieth Century Fox’s Trolls, Warner Bros.’ Suicide Squad and Netflix’s Orange is the New Black.
The skills which these new hires bring, including high-level experience with Rich Media, Social Graphics, Digital Out of Home (OOH), Key Art and Vertical Video, makes Think Jam even more agile and responsive, with greater capabilities to tackle the continual changes in the digital landscape and address the needs of the wider entertainment industry. The past year has seen Think Jam broaden their client portfolio with new gaming clients including PlayStation, for whom they have done multiple campaigns in 2016.
Amongst the team changes, Rory Hallam, Think Jam’s former Director of Media, has been promoted to Creative Operations Director. This new role seeks to expand the agency’s production backbone, build new skills, products and drive innovation. Emma Stevens, who heads up the agency’s PlayStation account with Rory and one of the leads on the global Netflix and Warner Bros. accounts, has firmly established Think Jam’s TV and game portfolios leading her to being promoted to Account Director, in a role which will see her drive clients to award winning campaigns. Kat Carr has been appointed to the newly created role of Art Director: Social and Brand, which will see her drive and inspire creativity throughout all campaigns.
Amongst the new staff there have been strategic hires to help growth within industry sectors, including a motion graphics designer with experience producing award-winning creative for games titles such as Fallout 4 and Doom and an experienced Interactive Producer who has previously worked with clients such as Starbucks and The Legacy Foundation.
Rory Hallam, Creative Operations Director at Think Jam said “I’m passionate about our creativity as an agency and I am excited to implement my vision to take our creative services department forward on a global level. I want Think Jam to keep innovating; we’ve launched some incredible products this year by collaborating across the business, especially in social media and mobile including Facebook Canvas, Twitter Moments and Snapchat Vertical Video. I’m really excited to see how we can make our creative work harder, exploring new areas of technology including geo location and programmatic.”
This news follows an announcement earlier this year that Louise Brennand, who is based in the agency’s US office, was appointed to the role of VP Creative Client Services. The promotions and new hires are effective immediately.
