Digital agency space150 welcomed Chris Cobb to its New York office as creative director.
Cobb joins space150 after over three years as a creative director with SapientNitro’s Second Story Interactive Studios in New York, “a network of design studios focusing on responsive environments, story-driven experiences, and experience innovation.” Prior to that he spent over six years at SapientNitro’s Atlanta office, serving as a senior art director, associate creative director and creative director, while working clients including Carter’s, AT&T, Chrysler, MetLife, Levi’s, Avon and New Balance. Before joining SapientNitro, Cobb spent two years as an art director with Three, also in Atlanta.
“Chris is a veteran of some of the nation’s top digital and experiential agencies, and his body of work has enabled some of the world’s premier brands to tap into new and innovative potential,” space50 chief creative officer Brock Davis said in a statement. “Combining a strong design sense and inventive approach, Chris connects with space150’s vision. I’m excited to work with Chris and look forward to his immediate impact on our teams and work.”
Cobb’s hiring follows the promotion of Dutch Thalhuber to president in April and the arrival of Char Roseblade as senior vice president, account services last October.
