Senior Arc creatives move to Craik Jones

LONDON – Craik Jones Watson Mitchell Voelkel has hired the senior creative team Martin Duckworth and David Bradbury.

Duckworth, a copywriter, and Bradbury, an art director, join from Arc London, where they spent the past four years working clients such as Fiat and Johnnie Walker.

They have worked together for 10 years, on advertising and direct marketing briefs. They were previously at Euro RSCG London, where they worked on accounts including Peugeot Citroen, The Independent and Microsoft.

During their career they have picked up awards including a silver at Cannes for their Fiat website and a DMA gold for their Fiat Panda work.

At Craik Jones, the team will work across a range of the agency's clients, including Land Rover, First Direct and the Unilever-owned Hellman's Extra Light mayonnaise account, which the agency won last month.

Mark Buckingham, the head of the creative department at Craik Jones, said: "This dynamic duo are a true through-the-line team with a wealth of experience.

"With ten years together, they are well established and have a truly integrated perspective. Their haul of awards, in a variety of media, is testament to that. We're very pleased to have them here at Craik Jones."
