Butterfield Day Devito Hockney has taken on an award-winning senior

creative team, Caroline Gibson and James Spence, to be second-in-command

behind the agency’s creative chiefs.



Gibson and Spence, who have been freelancing since last summer, will

work on the retail account for Savacentre, which the agency picked up

late last year, and also on the Co-operative Bank. They bring experience

from working on Barclays, Allied Bakeries’ Mighty White and InterCity.



Simon Green, the joint creative director, explained that the duo were

experienced enough to run their own workloads, thus freeing Green and

his partner, John Dean, for other things.



‘They’re a multifaceted pair. They are mature enough to go in front of

clients and old enough to get on with it. It will take a lot of work off

our shoulders,’ he said.



Gibson, 34, and Spence, 32, have worked together since they met at

Generator eight years ago. After Generator the pair moved to Impact FCA

and finally GGK, where they were made redundant last summer.



Spence has won a Creative Circle award for his work for the Whale and

Dolphin Conservation Society, while Gibson has picked up New York

International Festival awards for work on Mitsubishi and the charity,

Elefriends.
