Darwin Tomlinson leaves The White Agency to join DDB Sydney as integrated deputy ECD

DDB Sydney has created a new role – integrated deputy executive creative director.

Filling the new role is Darwin Tomlinson, who joins from digital shop The White Agency where he was ECD.

He was behind The White Agency’s award-winning Property Finder mobile app for Commonwealth Bank.

DDB’s ECD Dylan Harrison said in a press release: “The first thing I said to Darwin is that I wanted to work with a digital native, but didn’t want a digital creative director. I want a partner in the creative department who builds ideas people find irresistible because they’re interesting and relevant, before we talk about digital or technology. Having worked at such great places like Razorfish NYC, Wieden + Kennedy and The White Agency, Darwin gets that true integration starts with understanding what makes people tick. He’s a rare mix of big picture thinking and deep digital experience.

Also joining DDB Sydney is Barth Whalen as a user experience specialist.

Whalen joins from The Netherlands, where he worked at Tribal DDB Amsterdam and Lost Boys.
