Mullen Alum Behind ‘Agency Fight’ Heads to Translation

schuylerIf the name Schuyler Hunt doesn’t ring a bell, perhaps we can refresh your memory by recalling some of his fun projects during his two-and-a-half years at Mullen including the “Agency Fight,” “The Riddlist” and the cat-friendly, seizure-inducing and brief retuning of his old agency’s “Work” section. The “Zach Braff lookalike” as one tipster has coined him (ok, maybe they’re onto something) has joined up with NYC-based Translation, which is fresh off of hiring a new CCO in Martin Agency/Chiat LA alum John Norman, as an ACD/creative technologist. Prior to his time at Mullen, Hunt also had a brief spell or two at the Martin Agency as a CT and spent 15 months at the VCU Brandcenter.

Mullen ‘Work’ Page Likely to Induce Headaches/Seizures (Updated)

Holy cat .gif overload! Not sure what’s the story with the current look of Mullen’s work section on its site, but it’s surely not a sight for sore eyes, we reckon. Since the Mullen camp actually just sent us the link to the Work page unsolicited (adding the note, “It’s all screwed-up”), we’re assuming there’s something behind this feline frenzy, though we’re getting an even worse headache just thinking about. If you’re really that keen on checking out Mullen work today, we suggest just clicking the “Sort By: Client” link to see the normal work images or just squinting and clicking through wherever.

Update: Well, as we thought, it looks like there was a method to Mullen’s madness after all. According to agency creative technologist Schuyler Hunt (aka “The Riddlist”), “We were tooling around with the website and jokingly put some cats up. We sent it to CCO Mark Wenneker as a joke, and wondered if we’d get in trouble, but instead of telling us to cut it out, he just told us to make them conceptual gifs. And make the content match the client.”

VCU Students Ready to Start ‘Agency Fight’

Three guys from VCU Brandcenter, perhaps still reeling from the fact that VCU actually made it to the Final Four and lost (but probably not), are ready to see how agencies can hold their own when it comes to a fight. Yep, it’s “Agency Fight” and it all comes down to a click. The merry men behind this online effort, Schuyler Hunt, David Sloan and Bill Veasey, think that “this was a cool idea.” We think we’ve seen this type of thing before, but how about you, agency people?
