Collier, Robinson Finally Land at DDB Chicago

Nearly two months after we first reported that Ewan Paterson‘s old chums from London’s CHI & Partners–Matt Collier and Wayne Robinson–would be reuniting with him at DDB Chicago this summer, the latter agency has now confirmed that the pair has officially joined as creative directors, and ahead of schedule from the looks of it.

In their new roles, Collier and Robinson will across DDB Chicago’s client roster, which now includes the likes of Sierra Mist and several Mars brands. Though the creative duo has spent the past five years at CHI & Partners, where they recently won a D&AD Yellow Pencil and Campaign Best Print Ad honors for their Sunday Times “Rich List,” their relationship dates back several more to the days of Mother and JWT London.

During the course of their career, they’ve worked on Shell, Mazda, Toyota, Nestle and 888.com and have garnered over 150 awards in the process. Their mate and current DDB Chicago CCO Paterson says of the pair, “Matt and Wayne are one of the best teams I’ve ever worked with. They have the talent and the hunger that produce a relentless flow of award-winning and new-business-winning ideas, and what’s more, they have the ability to create a staggering diversity of work that crosses all media channels.”
