L.A. Indie Shop Hour One Hires CP+B, TBWA Vets to Lead Creative

By Patrick Coffee Comment

Hour One*, a self-described “New-Media marketing & production agency” that came into this world back in the sweet, sweet year of 2016, has concluded the search for its first-ever creative leads.

Scott MacGregor and Mickey Taylor officially joined the shop this month as co-ECDs. According to the release that just hit our inbox, the goal of the hire is to “bolster the agency’s creative product” (home page here).

In the past, Hour One has focused on brand strategy, social media and production and worked with such clients as Nissan, Pedigree, Absolut and Pixar’s The Incredibles.

“We didn’t take the search for creative leadership lightly,” said founder and CEO Jeanann Grubbs, formerly with David&Goliath and TBWA\Chiat\Day L.A. “So finding a team with their kind of backgrounds who share our enthusiasm for creating innovative ideas for brands large and small was not easy.”

Taylor and MacGregor have known each other for some time after working together at TBWA and later heading to assorted jobs at GSD&M, BBDO and CP+B.  MacGregor went on to freelance while Taylor launched a company called G&M Plumbing that focused on production work.

Oh look, somebody noticed the news!


While we’re at it, here’s Grubbs explaining her operation’s humble beginnings.

*We should be clear that this is NOT One Hour Agency, which launched in Sweden four and a half years ago and promised to deliver your brand ideas in an hour or less before disappearing into the unforgiving ether of the internet.
