With Collective has snared Havas London's Dan Bolton and Barnaby Packham.

The award winning pair, who worked with Steve Coll, With Collective chief creative officer, previously at Droga5, will join the agency in the role of associate creative directors.

Throughout their careers Bolton and Packman have worked across big Aussie brands, including Qantas and Woolworths.

At Droga5 they were responsible for Qantas Frequent Flyer’s ‘Stories For Every Journey’, and have been widely awarded at One Show, D&AD and Cannes. 

After a stint in London, the creative duo return from the UK having just launched the 'Teddies' Christmas ad for Heathrow Airport. 

With Collective CEO Justin Hind says: "We’re delighted to have hired a team of the calibre of Dan and Barnaby. They are a great cultural fit, and and they’ll be a key part of an agency that's constantly evolving to face the future of advertising."

Coll says the pair have a great understanding of With's current clients.

"It’s hard to imagine hiring two nicer, more talented people than Dan and Barn. I’ve been in touch with the fellas throughout their stay in London as I'd always hoped to work with them again. They have a great understanding of some of our key clients, and they are relentless in the pursuit of great work. I thoroughly enjoyed working with them both at Droga, and I’m delighted they have chosen to join With," he says.
