Let’s first get through the formalities and let you know, even though you all probably know, that TBWA vet Scott Trattner has joined up with 72andSunny as executive creative director. The eight-year \Media Arts Lab vet co-created the “Mac vs. PC” campaign for Wall Street’s MVP. In a statement, 72andSunny chief exec John Boiler breaks it down, saying, “Scott’s track record for creating colossal impact on behalf of his clients is second to none. His work has not only shaped one of the biggest brands in the world, but redefined industries. Jason and Frank have led some of the most notable campaigns in the world and are cultural keystones. Moving to this new structure will allow us to scale our culture and best practices while maintaining our relentless focus on creative excellence.”
The “Frank” Boiler is referring to is Frank Hahn, who along with Jason Norcross (promoted to partner nearly a year ago) has been bumped up to executive creative directors at the SoCal-based, MDC-owned agency.
Update: For the sake of keeping folks out of trouble, we’ll let the original rant pass by the wayside. Sorry for it, but I still think AdAge really needs to get over itself. You are not the monolith you think you are.
