David Kim Heads Back to SF

Here’s what we got from a seemingly deleted Facebook status update from David Kim, who joined Deutsch LA as a group creative director merely 10 months ago. From what we’ve been told, this is what Kim posted: “LA’s in my blood but SF’s got my heart. #farewellDLA #lookingforaplacetoliveinSF.” Kim joined Deutsch LA as group digital creative director last year on Volkswagen, essentially taking over for Jerome Austria after spending a few years working at Venables Bell & Partners, helping the Bay Area agency launch Google Fiber and Intel’s “The Chase” in the process.

From what sources tell us, Kim and family just missed the San Francisco area hence the departure, which we hear was amicable. During his career, Kim also served as an interactive CD at Publicis Seattle on T-Mobile and served as a designer at TBWA\ unit \Tequila. No word yet on his next move, but we’ll keep you posted.
