303 MullenLowe continues to grow with Joe Van Trump (right) and Nick Plomp (left) joining the agency's creative department in Sydney.

Van Trump joins 303 MullenLowe from recent roles at Leo Burnett, where he was co-creative director on Woolworths, and LOUD Advertising, where he was creative director.

Says Richard Morgan, executive creative director, 303 MullenLowe: "Joe is a hands-on creative who can do everything from help craft a great strategy to shape a brilliant idea. He's collaborative and tenacious - if he stumbles across a good idea, no matter where it comes from, he'll do everything in his power to make it happen. We're lucky to have snared him."

Originally hailing from the United States of Texas, Van Trump was creative director and managing partner at start-up agency George, later re-joining DDB Sydney in 2004 as creative group head on McDonald's, associate director.

Plomp brings a unique perspective to 303 MullenLowe having spent six years editing online culture magazine Ajanaku.com. He joins from TBWA, Y&R and most recently MullenLowe Alfred in the Netherlands where he worked across major brands like Grolsch, LG, Unilever, Danone, Heineken, ABN Amro and many more, winning awards along the way including Gold and Silver Lions for LG.

Says Morgan: "Nick has big brand experience and an eye for detail and craft no matter the media. He's also a culture junkie and a social media native, which makes him a great fit for us."

Plomp is the second creative to join 303 MullenLowe from the Netherlands this year, with Jeena van der Heul joining as interactive art director in May. In the same month Harry Stanford joined as senior integrated copywriter from London.
