We’ve received confirmation that DUMBO-based digital shop Big Spaceship has lost one of its OG’s, namely Joshua Hirsch, who had been with the agency for over 11 years, starting out as its sole coder and eventually dubbing himself, yes, the “minister of technology.” No official word yet on what his next gig is, but from what the Spy line crew tells us, Hirsch is joining fellow New York-based operation Publicis Kaplan Thaler as VP of creative technology. From what we’re hearing, the now-Big Spaceship alum, who also served as partner at said agency, will assume his role at PKT in mid-August.
