McCann has appointed multi award-winning creatives Josh
Aitken and Willy Maitland as the agency continues to build its national
Josh joins McCann, part of Australia's newest independent network, HERO, from Clemenger BBDO and AMV BBDO London. Josh has created stand out campaigns including V Energy The Procrastination Place, Hiscox The Hack, and Tourism Australia's Gold Lion winning Aussie News Today. He also helped launch and run Clemenger’s social and content offering FLARE. He joins the team as Creative Director.
Willy joins the team from AnalogFolk and Clemenger BBDO. Willy’s greatest hits include Hungry Jack’s Burger Phone, Extra Support Acts, Boss Coffee How Japan Can, V Energy The Procrastination Place and Welcome to Reckorderland. Willy is also the youngest person ever to teach at AWARD school and was awarded B&T Creative of the Year, 30 under 30.
Their work has been awarded at Cannes, D&AD, The Webbys, Effies, AWARD Awards, Caples, New York Festival and Spikes.
Chief creative officer, Ben Coulson, said: “Josh and Willy are ace! As professionals and as people. They’re not quite normal, in a very good way. I think they’ll fit right in. Welcome guys, hope it’s a great gig for you!”
Josh and Willy added: “We’d probably take a job at Blockbuster Video if it meant working with Coulson again. Luckily, unlike Blockbuster, McCann and Hero Group are developing a creatively-driven business that’s vibrant and a little weird. We’re excited to be part of this.”
The creative duo are a vital part of McCann’s national creative team and will work together to help lead the creative output for Mastercard, Coca Cola, eBay, Microsoft and Menulog.
