STW Group’s brand agency Moon Communications has hired the former head of ideas at Naked Andy Pilkington as executive creative director.

Pilkington joins after just four months as creative director at ad agency 303Lowe.

Pilkington will replace Greg Logan, who moves to new STV Group-backed content company Hatch. Logan had been working part-time at Hatch since STW launched the company in April.

Moon CEO Anouk Darling said: “We wanted our new ECD to have creative leadership teamed with proven success in the omni- channel landscape. Andy fits the bill perfectly, bringing a wealth of digital experience. He also suits Moon’s creative niche having come from design origins.”

Pilkington added: “The ECD role at Moon is an exciting opportunity to combine all of my creative passions in one place; building brands from the ground up, defining their behaviour and bringing it all to life with great ideas, in any channel.”

Pilkington begins his new role immediately.

  2. Four months? As ECD? Hugh Heffner’s got a better track record with girlfriends than that.

    I’m just some guy talking on the blogs and I’ve never met Andy, but aren’t Moon worried he’ll drop them when someone prettier walks into the room?

  4. I remember a recruiter once told me that if you leave somewhere in under three months it is usually because the person isn’t right for the job. Where as if you leave a place from three months to under a year then it is usually the place isn’t right for the person.

    I don’t know Andy or the 303 Lowe well enough to comment on this situation, just proposing another point of view.

  6. I know Andy and he’s too good to be a CD – pretty simple really then when the right opportunity comes along.
