Swift, a Wunderman Thompson creative agency based out of Portland, announced the appointment of Danny Mota to creative director. Danny will report to Don Shelford, executive creative director, and lead creative work for the PepsiCo account across the Gatorade and Muscle Milk brands. Before joining Swift, Danny held roles with Annex88 and Havas.
“Danny has deep knowledge of sports culture and has worked on leading industry brands like Adidas and Nike,” said Don Shelford, executive creative director. “He is a true craftsman who loves digging into filmmaking and design. We are so excited to see what Danny and the team will do with an innovative brand like Gatorade."
“My love for Gatorade runs deeps,” said Danny Mota. “As a kid from Chicago, I knew it was the drink of choice for Michael Jordan, so it was mine too. I want to be like Mike. With that said, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help lead the creative of this iconic brand that has defined sports and culture.
