DNA Seattle hired Allyson Paisley from Laundry Service as creative director.
Paisley will work across all of the agency’s clients, as well as new business efforts, reporting to executive creative director Steve Williams.
“Allyson brings not only a wealth of digital and social expertise but also a knack for creating big, media-agnostic ideas and a passion for design and production craft that will help us go far,” Williams said in a statement. “She feeds off collaboration and leading teams, and it showed the day she walked in our front door. We’re lucky to have her.”
Paisley spent over two years working on the T-Mobile account for Laundry Service, as associate creative director and then creative director, during which time she worked on the “Home Runs for Hurricane Recovery” campaign in partnership with Major League Baseball. That followed a year at Edelman Digital working across Oranize, Samsung and Ticketmaster.
Before that, she spent over five years in art director roles at Digitas North America, where she was part of the team behind the Cannes Lions-winning Amex Small Business Saturday campaigns.
“DNA has created an atmosphere that encourages collaboration, entrepreneurship, and supporting one another,” Paisley said in a statement. “I’m excited to be a part of this incredible team, and I look forward to seeing all the great work we create together.”
