Brendon Guthrie and Tim Holmes

Ad agency JWT has made a double hire to strengthen the creative department of its Melbourne office.

Brendon Guthrie and Tim Holmes have joined from rival DDB Melbourne.

Their career highlights, which included a stint at Grey Melbourne, include work for the likes of John West, Leggo’s, ANZ, Origin Energy and TAC.

They start their new roles on 3 September.

Richard Muntz, JWT Melbourne’s ECD said: “They make a formidable creative pair, highly regarded for their ability to turn out brilliant work, time and time again. Brendon and Tim bring to JWT Melbourne conceptual muscle, flawless execution, an impressive collection of check-shirts and that all too rare commodity, experience.”

Guthrie and Holmes said in a statement: “We both believe nothing worthwhile is ever accomplished quickly or easily and it was clear from our first meeting that both Muntzy and MD Michael Godwin share that philosophy. Over the last couple of years they’ve brought together a group of people who place equal value on thinking and craft and that combination’s really starting to flow through the agency’s work.”
