FCB Aotearoa has announced the promotion of Alan Jones and Angelo An, formerly senior creatives, to the role of Creative Directors. The duo, who initially collaborated at FCB in 2011 and later worked at M&C Saatchi London on notable projects, returned to FCB in 2021.
Their recent work, including acclaimed campaigns like ‘Toll Booth,’ ‘Through My Eyes’ for Waka Kotahi, ‘How To Do Nothing’ for Te Hiringa Hauora, and ‘The Second Sun’ for Mercury Energy, has earned them recognition in the industry with multiple awards such as Cannes Lions, D&AD, Immortal Awards, and more.
Leisa Wall and Peter Vegas, co-Chief Creative Officers of FCB, commended the duo, describing them as a “class act” and expressing excitement about their transition to Creative Directors. Jones and An, named Creative Team of the Year at the 44th AWARD Awards in 2023, shared their commitment to creating impactful work and their eagerness to contribute to the development of their teams and clients.
In a joint statement, they said, “Our goal has always simply been to make work that people (and ourselves) would want to see in the world. And now we’re officially in lower middle management, hopefully, we can help more of our teams and clients do just that. So, this promotion means a lot to us, and it means even more to be doing it alongside our friends at the agency where it all began. Exciting times and swankier email signatures ahead.”
