After a career trajectory that led him from an intern at JWT to eventually a creative director at Goodby and GCD at Saatchi & Saatchi’s Team One on the Lexus account, Gavin Lester has now landed in familiar territory and will serve as CD at 180LA.

Along the way, Lester’s picked up a gold Campaign Poster prize for his first-ever OOH effort for Strong Bow Cider during said intern status and was named one of the 10 most awarded art directors by Boards when he worked at BBH on Levi’s. The agency folks tell us that Lester, who makes us ask ‘why so serious?’ from his headshot, will work on Sony Global, Sony Electronics & New Bus.
