Ex-Leagas creatives Taylor and Officer to boost Soul's offering

Soul has bolstered the strength of its creative department with the appointment of two former Leagas Delaney creatives, Michelle Taylor and Julie Officer.

The duo were made redundant from Leagas Delaney earlier this year after three years at the agency. During their time there they worked on accounts including Hyundai, Harrods and Adidas - including a series of television commercials for the sportswear company that featured the German national football team.

The pair have been freelancing at Soul for the past few months and now take up full-time positions as the sixth creative team at the agency.

At Soul they will work across a range of the agency's accounts, including Uniqlo, Powergen and the Greater London Authority.

Bruce Crouch, Soul's creative partner, said Taylor and Officer would bring new thinking to the agency's creative product: "Julie and Michelle's time at Leagas Delaney has stood them in good stead and they have already brought a different perspective to the agency."
