During their brief stint at BBDO SF, copywriter Hofstadter (pictured) and art director Valero, who joined last summer from Goodby and DDB Milan, respectively,¬† worked together on accounts including Mars’ Cesar and Whiskas brands, Gallo wine and Harrah’s.

Now at the Evolution Bureau, the pair will work directly under ECD Stephen Goldblatt and with a shop that counts clients including Facebook, Firefox and various Mars/Wrigley brands such as Skittles, Altoids, Juicy Fruit and Orbit. Along with his ACD stint at Goodby, Hofstadter spent three years in Chicago as a creative at Leo Burnett while Valero worked in his native Spain at Euro RSCG Madrid as well as Y&R Milan before heading to the States.
