Tim Wettstein Joins Team One as ECD
An award-winning veteran of the creative world, Tim Wettstein has joined Team One as ECD.
With a wealth of international experience including stints in London, Amsterdam and Stockholm, Tim brings additional creative expertise and global cultural perspective to the shop, which includes brands such as Lexus, Indian Motorcycle, EA and The Ritz-Carlton.
“Tim brings a truly integrated way of thinking that will be a perfect addition to the creative leadership team,” said Team One Chief Creative Officer Chris Graves. “He’s a talented creative with a passion for design and problem-solving, and his energy and enthusiasm are contagious. We feel fortunate to have Tim join us at this exciting time and look forward to his leadership in continuing to evolve and push the creative boundaries for our clients.”
Tim is known for his first-to-market executions including the first broadcast TV spot in stereoscopic 3D and the first Interactive Eye Contact Installation that was honoured at the AICP Next Awards and is now part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. No stranger to firsts, Team One continues to push the industry with market launches such as the unprecedented virtual-reality experience for a broadcast primetime series.
Tim’s passion for finding creative solutions that use technology in innovative ways brought to life Bullseye’s Playground for Target, an immersive, in-store gaming experience allowing the player to physically walk throughout a game and interact with characters within a store environment using Google's Tango 3D mapping technology. Target was recognised as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies of 2015 for the initiative.
Tim has also led campaigns for Google, Carl’s Jr, Gillette, Best Buy and Call of Duty and is recognised by Cannes, Webby Awards, CLIO Awards, D&AD, LIA Awards, One Show and the Effie Awards.
A pilot in his spare time and self-declared “engine enthusiast,” Tim’s adoration for cars, motorcycles and planes will bring an added passion to the Lexus brand’s continued design evolution.
Tim will join Executive Director Paul Silverman to lead the Dallas office for the luxury and premium agency.
