We’ve been hearing from sources in the know that it’s “positive 100% confirmed” that Kristina Slade, creative director at AKQA San Francisco, has left the WPP-owned digital agency. Slade has spent nearly three years at AKQA SF, where she served as CD on Target among other things. Prior to her most recent gig, the creative spent a year at TBWA\Chiat\Day LA but, according to an AdAge interview from last year, left her ACD gig at the agency to “get more digital.” During her career, Slade also had seven-year gig at L.A. shop Ground Zero, which was merged with what is now WDCW three-and-a-half years ago. AKQA has yet to comment on the matter, but we’ll keep you posted.
