Lea Egan has joined Clemenger BBDO as creative director from Anomaly in New York.
Egan left Australia in 2016 to join Anomaly as associate creative director and was promoted to creative director in 2018. In a decade of experience, she has produced work for the UN, Converse, Netflix, Red Bull, Nike, Hershey’s, Kohl’s, Vegemite, Qantas, the Australian Cancer Council, Tourism Victoria, Nestle Peters, L’Oreal and more.
Prior to Anomaly, Lea was a creative at Droga5 Sydney, Publicis Mojo Melbourne and DDB Melbourne and her work has been applauded at international award shows including Cannes and D&AD.
Egan is also the creator of the game, Cumming or Drumming, which became an internet sensation, with over 2 million players and a number 2 spot on Reddit – much to her mother’s horror, she says.
Clemenger BBDO chief creative officer, Stephen de Wolf, commented, “Having Lea join the agency is a huge coup. She’s a fantastic human with incredible talent and she’s demonstrated that talent across such a wide variety of mediums and clients and we’re thrilled to have her return home and join our team.”
Lea added, “I am so excited to join Wolfie and the team here at Clemenger BBDO. It’s a brilliant agency with an unbeatable creative pedigree. I feel lucky to be joining the ranks.”
