GSD&M Promotes Pair to GCDs

The “idea city” that is Austin-based, Omnicom-owned GSD&M has promoted CDs Robert Lin and Jeff Maki to group creative directors. Both creatives have been with the agency since 2005 and have collectively worked on efforts for past and present GSD&M clients including BMW, Kohler and the recent Jarritos Mexican soda launch. Now, as GCDs, the pair will continue working on Jarritos and will oversee creative on the Marshalls, Victoria and Pacifico beer accounts.

Prior to joining GSD&M, Lin spent two-and-a-half years as a senior art director at fellow Texas-based operation The Richards Group, playing his part in client work for Home Depot, Corona and Red Lobster. Maki, meanwhile, joined GSD&M from TBWA\Chiat\Day, where he spent nine years as a copywriter on iTunes, Nissan, Infiniti and Playstation among other accounts. We’ll leave it up to you to judge their headshot.
