Blammo brings in five

The Toronto agency bolsters its creative team with two new copywriters, two new art directors and a new account director.

Toronto-based Blammo Worldwide has just capped off a hiring spree, bringing in five fresh faces to the agency.

On the creative side, Mike Richardson joins the team as a copywriter, while Oliver Brooks comes on board as an art director. Both previously worked at Draftfcb, on accounts such as Kraft and TD Canada Trust. The pair will begin working with clients such as Fallsview Casino and Cougar Shoes.

They’re joined by recent Humber College graduates Vanessa Heber, art director, and Victoria Sturgess, copywriter, rounding out the creative hires.

Nicole Brown, formerly of 6Degrees Integrated Communication and Grey Worldwide, has been hired as account director.

The new team will help the agency deal with new and existing business, according to a release.
