Let the staffing news continue. Sources were spot-on with this one as Anomaly, fresh off of its Super Bowl double-feature for Budweiser (the Clydesdale “Brotherhood” and Black Crown spots, specifically) has indeed promoted Aisea Laungaue and Ian Daly to joint heads of planning. Anomaly founding partner Jason DeLand sings their praises, telling us simply, “They are fucking awesome.”
Both Laungaue and Daly (pictured) have been with Anomaly for 18 months, give or take, working out of the agency’s New York office. Prior to Anomaly, the former spent six years at various Saatchi offices, last serving as VP/planning director at said agency’s New York hub. Daly, meanwhile, spent two years as VP/senior planner at Grey NY, where he led efforts on the DirecTV account among others.
