Creative Director Day Calls it a Day at Leo Burnett

Well, we have received confirmation from Leo Burnett that Lucas Day, who’s spent nearly a decade at the agency’s Chicago hub and last served as VP/creative director, is leaving. We didn’t hear further official word other than that but tipsters are saying that Day is heading to fellow Chi-town operation, Bluedog Design, a design/strategy/creative shop that has worked with “partners” including Wrigley, Unilever, General Mills and Heinz. We’ve received what appears to be a memo regarding Day’s departure, which apparently is happening tomorrow. See below:

“It is confirmed that Lucas Day who’s spent just about ten years with us at Leo Burnett and Leo Burnett worldwide in Chicago, is leaving the agency on Friday. From what we know, Lucas is leaving of his own accord for a role change from Creative to Innovation and will be starting the new job in May. During his work in the Burnett network, Day worked in Chicago, Tokyo, Moscow, Milan and drove global retail efforts in many markets, he leaves several campaigns for global clients and new business projects behind him. He created national Campaigns in Japan and Russia and helped to build HumanKind projects for the agency.”

Prior to Leo, we’ve been told that Day helped lead creative on Phat Farm and worked with Revlon as well.
