Huge Cuts Some Staff

We’ve received confirmation that Brooklyn-based, IPG-owned Huge did let go of some staff yesterday. From what we’ve been told by those in the know, approximately 15 people, or less than three percent of total staff, were affected by Huge’s move, which is the last part of the agency’s reorganization that has been going on for the past nine months.

According to the Huge camp, the reorganization includes merging  product design and user experience groups and bringing in “a lot more senior staff across the board.” As for those affected by yesterday’s cuts, the Huge folks tell us that “we are doing everything we can to help them with the transition, including, where there’s interest, helping to identify opportunities inside the IPG network for them.”

On a completely unrelated note, we’ve also come to learn that Huge creative director Clayton Crocker, has left the agency (this was announced before yesterday’s cuts). Crocker has spent the last two years at Huge, and has had creative stints at the likes of Dentsu and Berlin Cameron United during his career. No word yet on where he’s headed to next.

HUGE Makes Several Staffing Moves

Two months after restructuring its leadership, IPG-owned, Brooklyn-based HUGE has added a bevy of staff including CDs Clayton Crocker and Andrew Kessler. Kessler hails from Campfire while Crocker (pictured) may have a set a record by leaving Dentsu just four months after joining said agency as an ACD. Elsewhere on the creative front, HUGE added Razorfish alum Kari Niles as another ACD.

In terms of management, Wing Pepper, formerly EVP of global innovation at MRM, has signed on as HUGE’s global MD and is tasked with driving the shop’s international expansion. Meanwhile, another former Razorfish staffer, Ray Samuels, will serve as MD in HUGE’s London office while ex-Yahoo director of biz dev Eduardo Torres will assume the same title in Brazil. Phew.
