We’ve received several tips over the past week or so about San Francisco agency DOJO.

chrismasseIn case you don’t know the name Chris Masse, he was employee #1 at San Francisco-based shop DOJO, originally joining as art director in 2009 before moving up the ranks to creative director at the agency. Well, now it appears that he’s on the freelance circuit as a CD/AD, working on several campaigns for Logitech, LG and Activision among other DOJO clients. Prior to joining DOJO, Masse worked in a similar role at the likes of Fancy with the former’s agency founders, Geoff Edwards and Mauro Alencar.
