Yeah, we’ll never let this go, but like we pointed out last year when he joined 180 LA and as you’ll see below, Derek Richmond was destined for some sort of stardom. Though his awe-inspiring moment on Full House never led to a career in Hollywood, Richmond has persevered in the ad/production biz for nearly two decades. Now, he’s landed a gig as director of digital production at Deutsch LA, which tells us that 14 of its last 16 creative hires have come from the digital side.
Richmond, as mentioned, joins from 180 LA, where he spent less than a year as director of integrated production. Prior to 180, Richmond spent four years at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, where he served in the same role of director of digital production and picked up a Cannes Cyber Lion for the Sprint “Now Network” rebranding campaign. Along the way, he’s worked with other clients including Sony, Mitsubishi, Adobe and the NBA.
