Tribal DDB Chicago Snatches Creative Director from Fallon

The interactive creative director behind BMWFilms.com jumps to a new agency.

Omnicom’s Tribal DDB Chicago has hired Kevin Flatt, well-known for his pioneering work on the BMW Films campaign, away from Fallon. Flatt will be the agency’s new interactive creative director, filling a position that’s been open for about a year.

During Flatt’s tenure as interactive creative director at Fallon, the agency conceived such well-regarded work such as Amazon.com’s Amazon Theater and Virgin Mobile’s Chrismahanukwanzakah site. He also worked with clients Lee, Sony, Converse and Holiday Inn. Prior to working at Fallon, Flatt held designer jobs at Duffy and at Nike.

Fallon could not be reached by press time to find out their plans to replace Flatt.

When Flatt begins work at Tribal DDB Chicago next month, he will work with brands such as McDonald’s, Gatorade, State Farm, PepsiCo, The Home Depot and JC Penney. The Tribal interactive creative director position oversees approximately 50 creatives in Chicago and Atlanta. After Mark Howell left the post and the industry, the agency has been seeking the right person for the job.

“The relationships we have with these clients are quite large now, and they deserve the best,” Paul Gunning, managing director of Tribal DDB Chicago, told ClickZ News. “I was more excited about calling the clients two days ago and telling them about Kevin than about anything else….To tell McDonald’s you’ve got the creator of BMW Films and he’s going to work on their account [was thrilling].”

Tribal DDB Chicago does Web development, interactive advertising and email work for its clients.
