Mark Nutley and Pat Hamill, who both left the creative department of BBDO Dublin recently, have resurfaced as joint creative partners at Goosebump, which is headed up by Sarah Love and forms part of Jim Donnelly’s CCG Creative Communications Group.
“When leaving BBDO we said we wanted to explore different agency shapes. We had a lot of really interesting discussions. We believe Goosebump and the JWT Group gives us the opportunity to be flexible and dynamic. Working in partnership with clients in tight groups, with access to a wider skills base, and international network capability, when required. It feels fresh. It feels exciting. And it feels like the future,” says Nutley.
Pat Hamill added: “A major part of the attraction is the opportunity to work with Sarah Love. Sarah is a real leader and a mould-breaker in the industry. Her vision, energy and passion has built Goosebump into a great business. Now, we believe, we can help the Goosebump team build on that success”.
“This is a major statement of intent for our business in 2019”, said Sarah Love, Goosebump Managing Director. “I’ve always believed in the power of ideas to create behavioural change. The guys work speaks for itself and they are real collaborators. They’ll work with all the great people we have in Goosebump and provide the creative leadership that they’ll find inspiring and our clients will find invaluable”.
The creative addition has come on the heels of Goosebump creating a new social offering, led by Lauren Murphy. “Lauren has a deep understanding of how consumers engage with the evolving digital landscape. Her strategic insights & passion for creating innovative solutions, that truly add value to our clients’ businesses, have transformed our approach to digital. The New Year couldn’t have started any better. We’ve got exciting times ahead,” says Love.
