We guess you can just call 180LA even steven. A minute after losing creative directors Grant Holland and Gavin Milner to 72andSunny, the 180 camp has brought on longtime creative duo Anja Duering and Carl Corbitt in the same roles. The latter pair joins 180LA from fellow SoCal operation Goodness Mfg, where they spent the last two years as CDs. Duering and Corbitt’s history dates back to mid-aughts when they served as VP/ACDs at CP+B, helping manage creative teams on accounts including Best Buy (Geek Squad, specifically) and VW. The duo’s professional travels have also taken them to W+K Amsterdam, where they served as creative directors on the global Nokia account.
Now at 180LA, Duering and Corbitt, whose specialties lie in art directing and copywriting, respectively, will work on accounts including Boost Mobile and Mitsubishi.
