We Work At Rain43

Dave Stubbs, Jane Murray, Duncan Porter - VP, Executive Creative Directors at Rain43

I'm so excited to share some amazing news. Duncan and I are now VP, Executive Creative Directors at Rain43. Our partner in crime is Jane Murray, and we couldn't be happier. This is an exciting new model for how agencies should be structured, with a partnership of very senior digital and traditional creative expertise at the very top. From what we've seen already clients love the approach and are excited to see what we can do.

One of our first tasks is to entirely rebuild the creative department. We're looking for fresh thinking and serious cross-discipline chops. We need intermediate and senior creative teams, designers, and front-end developers. We also want to hear from motion graphics specialists and UX people of all flavours. Analytics people, too. We need it all.

McCann Japan Hires #AI Creative Director

Meet AI-CD β, the AI bot

And that's not a euphemism... #McCann Japan actually did hire an #AI creative director.

AI-CD β, the AI bot was developed through the “Creative Genome Project”, one of the first projects undertaken by McCANN MILLENNIALS, an innovative taskforce that was launched last September by members of the agency’s Plissken faction. AI-CD β is artificial intelligence that is able to give creative direction for commercials.

How the Best Agencies Get, Keep and Develop Talent

It's always helpful to hear how other agencies keep their employees motivated. It gives a ton of perspective. We really like the Anomaly approach...

Go big when giving recognition. There's no time for office politics or bullshit. We always celebrate the people who get it and work in this way. We recognize the "Employee of the Month" with a car waiting outside the all-agency meeting to whisk the surprised winner away to a night out. Employees of the Year win a trip for two anywhere in the world. And we also have an Anomaly Sabbatical where we give $1,000 and a month paid time-off to go and do something you've always wanted to do.

Sounds smart to us.
