Lowe bulks up its creative team

Advertising agency Lowe has appointed Hamish Grieve and Derrick Kim to its creative department.   

The announcement:

Lowe Sydney has beefed up its creative department, hiring Hamish Grieve and Derrick Kim to work across all its accounts. Between the two of them, they’ve won trophies at Cannes, D&AD, AWARD, NY Festivals, One Show and ADMA.

Writer Hamish Grieve started his advertising career in Auckland, under the guidance of Kiwi legends Roy Meares and Jeremy Taine. After a stint at WRC he moved to Sydney in 2007, freelancing at The Furnace, JWT, M&C Saatchi and The Campaign Palace. (Grieve also found a seat at the startup Ward 6, creating work that helped them win the Emerging Agency of the Year award.)

Art Director Derrick Kim won a Gold Lion as a junior at Mojo Sydney. He caught the eye of Nick Worthington and spent two years at Mojo Auckland, being named Best Young Creative in Australasia in 2005. After a short stint at BBDO Singapore, he headed back to Sydney and helped 303 secure business including PepsiCo, National binge drinking, Honda, and Gloria Jeans.

Lowe ECD Mel Peters said, “We hired Hamish and Derrick as freelancers and they quickly made themselves indispensible. Their work is sharp and entertaining and I’m looking forward to seeing lots more of it in 2011.”
