CARRASCO JOINS LOWE HUNT


Lowe Hunt Sydney has lured the awarded Rebecca Carrasco to join their team as Senior Creative. Rebecca will be working alongside Creative Director, Dejan Rasic and the Lowe Hunt creative team – replacing senior writer, Howard Collinge who recently resigned from the agency. Carrasco, who until being tempted by the Lowe Hunt offer, had been taking a break from advertising to take a course at Uni. She was previously at Saatchi & Saatchi, Sydney and Auckland and before that at Colenso BBDO in Auckland. She first came to the attention of the industry by being top student at the inaugural YoungGuns a few years back.
Says Dejan Rasic: “I’m really excited that Rebecca is joining us. She is a proven creative talent and will be a major asset to our creative department. We have had a brilliant year, but our focus now is to maintain the quality of our creative product moving forward. We’re very proud to have her on board to help us achieve that.”
Lowe Hunt has managed to re-invent itself over the last year after its internationally applauded and awarded work on LynxJet, receiving the highest number of Cannes Lions ever won in the one year by an Australian agency, becoming one of the top global agency performers this year.

An email from Rebecca Carrasco...

Hi Lynchy,

I feel obliged to clarify something. Many people kindly gave me their help and support while putting together a research proposal recently and I just want them to know it wasn't all in vain. The PhD was approved and I'll start it in the new year, part-time, while also working with Dejan and the team at
Lowe.

I also want to say how tragic it is to hear of Julian's passing. He was a kind, talented and very generous person who gave me a lot of his time when I was starting out in the industry. His passion for ideas and innovation were infectious and, more importantly, he was just such a lovely, inspiring guy.
Very sad.

Bec.
