Thomas Marcusson, former art director at Ogilvy and Mather has joined SapientNitro as senior digital designer while creative and experiential duo Steven Hey and Dylan Soopramania join from DDB. Copywriter Marty Greguric also joins from dLook to work across SapientNitro’s Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane offices.

The announcement:

17 January 2011 – SapientNitro Australia, part of Sapient (NASDAQ: SAPE), today announced four hires to its Sydney creative and digital teams.

Thomas Marcusson has joined SapientNitro as senior digital designer.  Former art director at Ogilvy and Mather, Thomas was also founder of Scixors.com, a design collective based in Sydney with consultants in Paris and New York. Throughout his career he has consulted on global and local brands including Heineken, Tooheys, IKEA, Coca Cola and Commonwealth Bank.

Also joining the team in Sydney are creative and experiential duo Steven Hey and Dylan Soopramania, formerly of DDB, Momentum and Naked. Between them they have worked on an impressive list of brands including Austar, Audi, Breville, Cancer Council, GSK, Nescafe, McDonald’s, Nescafe, Red Cross and Ribena.

Skip Waterhouse, SapientNitro CD, says: “Steven and Dylan were exactly what we were looking for. They’re not only great blokes, they have amazing creative depth – from digital to old-school, and with Volvo being one of our major clients here in Sydney, their recent Audi experience was a major bonus.”

Steven and Dylan are also joined by copywriter, Marty Greguric who will work across SapientNitro’s three offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Marty has most recently been with dLook, Uncle and The One Centre and has experience working across brands including American Express, Audi, GE, David Jones and Woolworths.

All four appointments build on an already highly awarded team of creative and digital talent in the Australian business.

Paul Bennett, national managing director SapientNitro said, “We’ve continued to add some of the best creative and digital experts around to our team and are all passionate about the SapientNitro business model and where we are taking the company.  We are continuing to support the rapidly expanding customer experience needs of our clients and adapting to the changing environment we all operate in.”
