VICTORIA, Today: NZ-founded AUNZ agency Special Group continues to put on impressive weight – picking up two lauded senior creatives in their new Melbourne office.

Former Clemenger BBDO Melbourne creative directors Toby Moore & Luke Thompson have worked with leading brands and agencies across the globe.

Moore has created work for brands including Nike, Coca-Cola, Corona and Samsung at Publicis Mojo, Fallon London, Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam & London and most recently Clemenger Melbourne.

Thompson, has delivered the creative product for Carlton Draught, NAB, Tourism Victoria, TAC and Volvo and held positions at Taxi and Cliff Freeman & Partners in New York and until recently, Clemenger Melbourne.

“It’s not often you get to join an Australasian indie that’s opened two offices on opposite sides of the world, during a global pandemic.”

Moore & Thompson are the first creative hires for the recently launched Melbourne office. Since its launch, the Australian branch has secured iconic Australian brand Bonds, and made a raft of new hires, while Special AUNZ was crowned B&T Agency of the Year and Independent Agency of the Year at the B&T and AdNews Awards.

Campaign Brief Australia quoted Special Australia CCO/partner Julian Schreiber: “When we opened our office in Melbourne, we knew our founding creative hires had to not just be incredibly high calibre creative talent, but intuitive creative leaders.

“Toby and Luke are not only excellent humans, but their enviable body of work and experience shows they more than meet the brief. We’re beyond excited to have them come on board.”

Thompson said: “It is not often that you get the opportunity to join an Australasian independent that’s opened two offices on opposite sides of the world, during a global pandemic.

“Not only does Special Group make great creative work, but its culture of open, kind and brave is incredibly appealing to me.”
