Kim Joins Argonaut as CD

davidkimargosmallWell, it appears that it didn’t take long for David Kim to land a new gig in San Francisco, where the senior creative left his heart 10 months ago to join Deutsch LA as EVP, group digital CD on VW  (SmileDrive work included) before suddenly moving back to the Bay Area earlier this month. Well, now it’s confirmed that Kim (much better headshot provided now to your left) has assumed a creative director role at Argonaut, the San Francisco-based, Project: Worldwide-backed shop that was launched earlier this year by Goodby alums Rick Condos and Hunter Hindman among others.

Perhaps Kim’s most notable pre-Argonaut work was Intel’s “The Chase,” which he helped create along with the Google Fiber launch while at Venables Bell & Partners. In addition, Kim also spent time working on T-Mobile at Publicis Seattle. Along with the creative director’s arrival, we’ve finally received confirmation on tips from two weeks ago that Condos and Hindman’s former GS&P colleague Goodby Silverstein account director, Katie Rafferty, has headed to Argonaut to assume a similar role. From what we’ve been told in recent weeks, Rafferty is joining up with yet another Goodby alum, account director Maura Menapace to build up said department at Argonaut.
