The agency has hired the Glue Isobar group account director, Dan Shute, as partner, and the WCRS&Co director of delivery, Danny Bush, as director of delivery.

Shute has been at Glue Isobar for the past two years, running the Nokia global account. Before that, he was the director of engagement and participation at Delaney Lund Knox Warren. He is also behind the blog AdLand Suit.

Bush has been the director of delivery at WCRS&Co for the past four years. Before that, he was the delivery director at ODD London and has also held posts at Mother, Wieden & Kennedy and JWT London. Shute and Bush will work with Ivan Purdie, the managing director of Creature London.

Since launching in London last year, the agency has won the creative account for The Science Museum and is looking to win more local business beyond the roster of clients held by Creature Seattle.

Purdie said: "Creature is defined by its creativity, but that all counts for nothing if it is not matched by faultless delivery."

Shute added: "The chance to make something different with brilliant people just doesn't come that often."
