The Hallway has promoted copywriter, Jessica Thompson, and art director, Aldo Ferretto, to creative directors following a string of new business wins and continued client growth.
Ferretto (above right), who is originally from Chile, is armed with a career that spans four continents and includes stints in creative powerhouse agencies, Leo Burnett Buenos Aires, DDB Barcelona and Lola Mullenlowe, where he worked under legendary executive creative director, Chacho Puebla. He joined The Hallway 12 months ago as senior art director with an impressive portfolio of internationally awarded work.
He stated, “When I first met Simon, I was inspired by his burning passion for creativity and what he and Jules have already achieved with The Hallway. Now Jess and I are fired up to create the ground-breaking work for our clients that will define the agency’s next chapter. Call me biased, but we’re confident it’s going to be the best one yet.”
Thompson (above left) has been a rising star through The Hallway creative ranks since joining the agency in 2017. She has led the creative charge on campaigns for brands including Google, Dexus and Tourism Fiji, and played an instrumental part in the agency winning the Binge account in November 2019.
Thompson commented, “This is the beginning of a really exciting new chapter for me personally, for The Hallway and for our clients. I can’t wait to reward the trust implicit in this promotion with world class creative work that makes a real difference to our clients’ businesses.”
The Hallway executive creative director and partner, Simon Lee, added “It’s when the economic chips are down that our clients are most in need of great creativity, that’s why we’re investing in supercharging our creative leadership. I have to be able to look our clients in the eye and guarantee them creative work that will deliver the best possible business outcomes. With creative leaders on board like JT and Aldo, I know I can.”
