YoungShand has appointed two new creative group heads Jake Siddall and Sokpart Pao.
The very healthy weighted pair of boys have added creative firepower, cat snaps and fresh dad-jokes to the team.
Says Sokpart: “I’ve read somewhere that you’re supposed to surround yourself with clever people. And there’s a lot of clever and talented people here, passionate about doing brave, meaningful work. I also don’t mind the Friday balcony barbeques overlooking the Waitakere Ranges.”
Humbly bragging as the unofficially longest-running active, creative team in NZ of 12 years and counting, the duo brings a wealth of experience, award-winning flair and creative prowess with them. Coming from a big agency-network background, Jake and Sokpart have leapt in, boots’ n’ all, to the new unexplored world of the indie agency lifestyle at YoungShand.
Says Anne Boothroyd, ECD, YoungShand: “We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of Jake and Sok to our tight-knit team. They have that sought-after creative combination of talent, diligence and a drive to craft work for our client partners that taps into the unreasonable power of a brilliant idea. They’re also just good humans.”
The pair, who joined the YoungShand team at the end of 2020, has been welcomed with open arms. And they’re already making a big impact.
