Harrington at Callahan

Lawrence, Kan., independent agency Callahan Creek has hired former NKH&W creative director John Q. Harrington as creative director. Harrington, who has had stints at Saatchi & Saatchi in New York and Ogilvy & Mather in Atlanta, was creative director of Kansas City, Mo., agency NKH&W from 1996 to 2000. Since then, he has operated his own boutique, Blackbox Advertising. Cindy Maude, president of the agency, said she hoped Harrington’s position would help the shop better establish itself in the Kansas City market.
