As if David Miami didn’t already have a stellar cast of creatives.
The agency has added one of the most awarded creatives in Spain, Jose Sancho (picture above), as associate creative director. Sancho has worked on national and global accounts for brands like Burger King, Renault, Unilever (Cornetto, Magnum, Funny Feet) and Rexona, among others. During his six-year stint at LOLA MullenLowe in Madrid, he was known for award-sweeping campaigns such as Scary Clown for Burger King and The Hidden Flag. He has been awarded at Cannes, D&AD, Clios, The One Show, Andys, Effies, and more.
Sancho has teamed up with Curtis Caja, the awarded associate creative director responsible for Burger King’s Cannes Grand Prix winner, Burning Stores.
“Scary Clown’s copywriter meets Burning Stores’ art director. What else can I say? Jose is a tremendous asset and we’re excited to have him joining forces with Curtis. They will definitively help push our clients to new creative heights,” stated David global chief creative officer, Pancho Cassis.
“Between building my own skateboards and solving bizarre Rubik’s cubes, I’m always looking for a challenge, so it was inevitable that I would want to join the DAVID team,” Sancho commented. “They’re known for the most cutting-edge creativity in the industry and I’m looking forward to helping our clients create impactful work in this incredibly competitive market.”
Prior to his time at LOLA MullenLowe, Sancho was at Publicis Madrid and Y&R London.
Sancho’s hiring comes on the heels of the hires of Ricardo Honegger as managing director and Paula Vampré as David’s first-ever global chief strategy officer. So far this year, David Miami has already created buzz with two Super Bowl ads, the Moldy Whopper campaign for Burger King and the One Team campaign for Budweiser, which shifted its sponsorship from Sports leagues to front line workers at American Red Cross.
