The Monkeys, part of Accenture Interactive, has appointed creative directors Sam Dickson and Cam Bell.
Dickson and Bell join The Monkeys from CHE Proximity, where for the past five years they progressed from a young creative team to creative directors, working on globally-recognised and awarded work for brands including Carsales, RACV, Latitude and, most recently, Flybuys.
The pair met on the board of VIC Youngbloods and has now worked together for almost a decade. They strongly believe in diversity of thinking, collaboration and solutions that are just as creative as they are effective.
A mix of technology, data and media plays a large role in the creative duo’s work, kept hidden under compelling storytelling and a strong attention to craft.
Dickson and Bell, looking for a challenge, made the move to Sydney at the start of the year. After a few months spent freelancing they are excited to start at The Monkeys.
Dickson says: “We’ve had our eye on The Monkeys ever since we were juniors.”
Bell says: “So it’s no surprise we can’t wait to team up with an already exciting creative department.”
The Monkeys chief creative officer, Tara Ford, says: “This is going to be seriously good.”
