The new appointments round out Clemenger's expansion of the creative team followingSophieHorne.jpg the recent hire of Tom Knighton (far left) and Sophie Horne (bottom, left). The hires are the first for Coulson who has been at the creative helm since February this year.

Wright joins as creative director. Wright cut his teeth at Wieden+Kennedy London where he worked on Nokia, Honda, The Guardian, VisitWales and Nike including the D&AD yellow pencil-winning Run London campaign. Most recently Wright was part of the creative leadership team at Grey London working on Orangina, McVities, Vodafone and most notably a series of Cannes Lions-winning campaigns for Lucozade.
Pollard, ex The Monkeys, joins as an art director. Pollard worked across the agency's major brands including MLA, Bingle, UBank, IKEA, Telstra, HCF, The University of Sydney and Guide Dogs. Prior to moving across the globe from hometown London, Pollard worked at RAPP London on Virgin Media, Google, Dulux, and Barclays. Pollard will now be teaming up with talented copywriter Salah Ben-Brahim.

Knighton, ex DDB Sydney, also joins as an art director, teaming up with copywriter Adam Smith. Knighton was responsible for the award-winning print work for Minds for Minds, the not for profit research body for Autism.

And finally, Horne, formerly Grey, joins as art director working with copywriter, Celia Mortlock. The young duo is already earning a reputation for themselves within the agency for their fresh approach to work. The team will work across the agency's major clients including Visa, Smiths, MasterFoods, Dry July and Tourism Australia.

Says Coulson: "Building up a diverse creative team with new talent is a thrill. The guys all bring fresh perspective and a tonne of energy to the agency. We are all looking forward to rolling up our sleeves with the guys."
