We Hear: Kaftan Heading to Team One (Updated)

Perhaps it’s still Advertising Week recovery time, which could explain the lack of earth-shattering people news, so this will have to do for now. We’re hearing from sources on the Spy line that Jod Kaftan, currently experience lead at Santa Monica’s BLITZ, is leaving the shop after 11 months and heading over to Saatchi’s Team One division. As you’d expect, Kaftan will work primarily on the Lexus account. From what we hear, he’s taking on the title of experience design director at the agency. During his career, Kaftan has worked at the likes of Schematic as a UX designer and served as a senior content strategist at Razorfish. We’ll hopefully have confirmation on Kaftan’s move, official title and start date some time today.

Update: Kaftan is indeed joining Team One. He will start on November 1 as the agency’s director of experience design, reporting to executive digital creative director, Alastair Green.
