72andSunny Names GCD Matt Murphy as Partner

Matt Murphy

Longtime 72andSunny creative director Matt Murphy just added a new word to his title: partner.

Murphy, who joined the agency from W+K Portland in 2009, is now officially Partner/Group Creative Director.

In his nearly five years at 72andSunny, Murphy has worked on some of the agency’s biggest accounts and campaigns including Nike, Activision, K-Swiss/Kenny Powers and Google (on which he will continue to lead creative).

The release notes that he will “help lead 72andSunny’s commitment to experimentation with art, technology, and entertainment”. Co-founder/CCO Glenn Cole writes:

“He is constantly experimenting and pushing the creative limits of 72andSunny. His partnership will only allow him to have broader impact, and we look forward to that.”

On a side note, we do like this line from a bio best read with tongue planted as firmly as possible in cheek:

“When Matt is not finding new and interesting ways to work with brands to solve creative problems, he can be found helping his babe of a wife tend to their kale garden and/or dreaming up his next art project.”

…but kale still tastes funny.
