Y&R NY’s Graeme Hall Heads Back to Europe

After spending the last three years Stateside as a creative director/senior copywriter at Y&R New York, Graeme Hall is heading back to Europe and joining up with the creative team at 180 Amsterdam as a CD. During his time at Y&R, Hall served as CD on Virgin Atlantic and helped lead creative on a variety of other accounts including PETA (you might remember the recent “Agents in the Wild” effort), VH1, Land Rover and Airwalk (his “Invisible Pop Up Store” for the last earned him a Webby and Yellow Pencil).

According to a statement from 180 Amsterdam managing partner/ECD Al Moseley, Hall will serve as CD on various projects “across all our business, create his own work, and mentor teams. He’s going to be busy.” Prior to heading to the U.S. and joining Y&R, Hall spent five years at DDB London, where he worked as a creative on campaigns for Harvey Nichols, Marmite and various projects for VW.

We’ve been told he officially starts at 180 Amsterdam tomorrow.
