TBWA\Chiat\Day LA creative director Tito Melega has a new partner-in-crime on Nissan as Karl Dunn has now joined the agency to serve as a fellow CD on the automaker’s account. Dunn is no stranger to the TBWA network as he had creative stints at \Hunt Lascaris Cape Town and Johannesburg early on in his career. Along with his TBWA experience, Dunn has worked as a senior writer and digital creative director at BBH and Leo Burnett’s Singapore offices, respectively, was a senior CW at StrawberryFrog Amsterdam (on Heineken) and has auto experience with the likes of Plantage Berlin/BSUR Amsterdam as a creative director on MINI (“Love Is in the Air,” anyone?).
Chiat LA CCO Rob Schwartz says of his new agency’s new hire, “He’s done great work on brands like Mini, Levi’s and BMW Motorcycles. And he’s working right now on developing iconic ideas for Nissan against our highly successful Innovation For All creative platform.’
