Lester Partners with Elm on PlayStation Biz at Deutsch LA

Once again, our props go out to the tipsters as we’ve received confirmation that Gavin Lester, who’s spent the last six months or so on the freelance circuit, has joined Deutsch LA as EVP/group creative director. Lester will partner with 14-year Deutsch vet Jason Elm on the Playstation account, and on other accounts as needed. You might remember Lester from his most recent full-time gig as a CD/art director at 180LA, where he spent nearly three years and led creative on several campaigns for Sony including the ambitious “Project Shiphunt.”

During his career, Lester has also served as a GCD at Saatchi & Saatchi’s Team One on Lexus (of course), an ACD at Goodby and had a lengthy stint as an art director at BBH London. According to the Deutsch LA camp, Lester has already started at the agency.
