NZ Ranks Swell at Creative Hotspot
Geoff Coyle is the latest New Zealander to join advertising powerhouse 180 in Amsterdam, bringing the combined total to eight. “Of the 23 nationalities employed here, NZ is by far the most over-represented group,” said Coyle’s compatriot Kruno Ivancic in Fastline. “And, as usual, we are making our presence felt in the land of milk, cheese and tulips.” Creative team Stacey Lee and Rosita Rawnsley and account manager Sam Dempsey (all ex-Saatchi Auckland), creative director Andy Fackrell, digital artist and designer Emile Wilmar and account executive Lauren Andrews make up the NZ contingent. 180 has produced award-winning campaigns for Sony, MTV and Adidas, including the sports giant’s recent Impossible is Nothing series featuring Jonah Lomu (pictured).
