R/GA Chicago Hires New ECD

5de7d298808ae03d623a462564158087R/GA, the self-described “world’s most award-winning digital agency”, announced the hiring of a new creative co-lead for its Chicago office.

MDavid Low arrives from San Francisco tech/design consultancy Nurun (formerly Odopod), where he served as associate technical director; he will work closely with VP and executive director of copywriting Ken Erke and report to VP/MD Jeff Brecker.

Prior to working with Nurun, Low was chief creative technologist at Eleven, Inc., where he helped create Skippy the rock-skipping robot for client Sun Valley.

Brecker describes Low, who has worked with rock bands in addition to brands and counts motorcycle repair among his hobbies, as:

“…both a thinker and a maker – someone who doesn’t just understand design needs, but also the technology and production levers to develop and implement solutions for our clients.”

Before you ask: yes, that is his real name.
