Grant Rutherford, former chief creative officer of Publicis Mojo, has resurfaced at The Monkeys.

Rutherford exited the Publicis agency a year ago and has been working on a number of freelance projects since then, including some with The Monkeys.

He had been with the agency for two years, and prior to that had set up a blood cancer charity called The Snowdome Foundation.

The Monkeys' Justin Drape says: “Grant brings a high level caliber of talent and leadership to our clients and our culture. When you look at Rubba’s long list of achievements, it's obvious that he is world class. He’s also a cool guy so we are thrilled he has joined the agency and we are going to be creating lots of interesting work together.” 

Rutherford is an acclaimed and much awarded creative and his portfolio includes the iconic Carlton Draught 'Big ad'.

He previously spent a number of years at DDB Melbourne where he was ECD.
