Ex-DDB Design Head Pagan Heads to Deutsch NY

juancarlosddbWell, that didn’t long, either. Just a week after we reported that Juan Carlos Pagan had turned in his notice at DDB New York, where he spent the last two-and-a-half years as head of design, we’ve received word that the creative has moved over from Omnicom to IPG. Pagan has now joined up with the latter holding company’s agency, Deutsch NY, to serve in the newly created role of, yes, design director. From what we’ve been told, Pagan, who also spent time at the likes of what was G2 during his career, will assume his new role at Deutsch’s Big Apple hub next Monday, March 3.

Deutsch NY CCO and Pagan’s new boss, Kerry Keenan, says about the hiring, “I worked with Juan Carlos last year. He will be a great leader as we grow our design offering. His passion and talent for design are evident in every project he touches.”

DDB NY Loses Head of Design

juancarlosddbWe’ve received confirmation that Juan Carlos Pagan, who’s spent the last two-and-a-half years as head of design at DDB New York, is leaving the agency at week’s end. No word yet, though, on where Pagan’s headed to next, but the creative has pulled double duty as he also serves as partner/CD of his own Brooklyn-based design studio, Pagan & Sharp. During his time at DDB NY, Pagan has worked on several outdoor/print efforts for New York Lottery among other accounts.

Prior to DDB, Pagan (part of the ADC Young Guns class of 2013) spent a few years as as an art director of what was then G2 and served in a similar role at MTV. No word yet on if there are plans to replace the creative.

Lewis Black Tirade Signals Launch of ADC Call for Entries (Audio NSFW)

Comedian and occasional Daily Show figure Lewis Black brings his signature angry delivery to a new campaign that heralds the launch of the 91st ADC Awards call for entries. DDB New York created the campaign, which features the theme “Keep Fighting the Good Fight” and also includes print components (examples below). Black’s rant about award shows/agency life ends with a nice “go fuck yourself.” We wouldn’t have it any other way.The ADC online call for entries is now open here. Peep credits after the jump.
