While we’re not sure at this point if this is new Rosetta chief creative officer Lars Bastholm’s doing, we have received confirmation that the Publicis Groupe-owned agency has parted ways with executive creative director, Dave McClain, who worked out the Los Angeles office. Here’s a brief statement from Rosetta: “Dave McClain and Rosetta have parted ways. We are truly grateful to Dave for the huge impact he had on the agency in the last 3 years and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
To address the tips we’ve received this afternoon, from what we’ve been told, there have been no other ECD departures to report as of yet. As for McClain, the creative served as an art director early on in his career at the likes of Saatchi & Saatchi and Deutsch before moving into senior CD roles at Razorfish and Blitz.
