BBDO SF Alums Head to EVB

BDDO San Francisco’s Dan Hofstadter and Ricardo Valero are on the move as the creative team has left said agency after less than a year to take on similar ACD roles at fellow Bay Area operation, EVB. During their brief stint at BBDO SF, copywriter Hofstadter (pictured) and art director Valero, who joined last summer from Goodby and DDB Milan, respectively,  worked together on accounts including Mars’ Cesar and Whiskas brands, Gallo wine and Harrah’s.

Now at the Evolution Bureau, the pair will work directly under ECD Stephen Goldblatt and with a shop that counts clients including Facebook, Firefox and various Mars/Wrigley brands such as Skittles, Altoids, Juicy Fruit and Orbit. Along with his ACD stint at Goodby, Hofstadter spent three years in Chicago as a creative at Leo Burnett while Valero worked in his native Spain at Euro RSCG Madrid as well as Y&R Milan before heading to the States.
