303MullenLowe Sydney Bolsters Creative Team

303 MullenLowe is expanding its creative team after appointing award-winning copywriters Mike Burdick (right) and David Roberts (centre) as senior creatives, with Nicola McCooe (left) joining as copywriter.

Burdick has an amazing creative pedigree, having worked at agencies such as 180LA, Fallon Minneapolis, Saatchi LA and Publicis Mojo.

He's spent the past 5 years at The Monkeys where he helped create some of the agency's most visible work including MLA's 'Operation Boomerang' and UBank's 'The Rewards are Real', as well as major campaigns for Telstra and Bingle, among others. Over the course of his career, Burdick has created high-profile work for many international brands, including Expedia, Apple and Toyota.

Roberts joins the agency as associate creative director after four years at TBWA Sydney where he held the same title working on brands like RaboDirect, MJ Bale, Gatorade and Foxtel.

Prior to TBWA he was part of Us Sydney (now JOY) where his creative work was recognised for Nike, SBS and H&R Block - he was one of the creators behind Nike's award-winning 'She Runs the Night' campaign.

Nicola McCooe also joins the agency as copywriter. A top 10 student at AWARD School, she interned at Ogilvy & Mather before her career took off at Clemenger BBDO, iris Worldwide and whiteGREY.

Says Richard Morgan, ECD, 303 MullenLowe: "With three new writers of this calibre on board, it's possible they could invent an entirely new language. We're recruiting the best talent to help us create a culture where newer talent can flourish. Mike is a globally awarded, true and proven creative whose work has even been recognised by TED's Ads Worth Spreading. Dave has a real passion for PR-led ideas and will help us grow our capabilities in that space, while Nicola is an exciting talent with a bright future. Together, they bring an eclectic mix of interests and strengths to our team."

Says Roberts: "Joining Rich and the team felt like a great decision. Plus I couldn't pass up the opportunity to watch Ibises steal food from cruise ship passengers at Circular Quay."

Burdick, Roberts and McCooe are all based at 303 MullenLowe in Sydney.
