Levi-Slavin-NEW-web.jpgColenso BBDO, Auckland creative director Levi Slavin is departing the agency after four years to take a creative director role at Anomaly, New York.

Slavin joined Colenso in November, 2009 as deputy CD from Saatchi & Saatchi London, eventually elevated to CD six months later.

Perth-born Slavin, whose first gig was 303 followed by Marketforce Perth, worked at Colenso in 2006, and left a legacy of iconic work like Trumpet 'Undies' and the launch of Frank soft drink.

He then moved to Saatchi & Saatchi Auckland followed by two years at Saatchi & Saatchi London, working on campaigns for T-Mobile, Carlsberg, P&G and Cadbury.

At Saatchi's he completed the first global campaign in Guinness' history, working with director Antoine Bardou-Jacquet.
At Colenso, he has been responsible for many award winning campaigns, including Doggelganger and Donation Glasses for Pedigree, and the highly awarded War On Wine campaign for DB Breweries. During Slavin's time, Colenso consistently ranked in the top 5 in the Won Report's global rankings, coming in at #5, #1 and #4 respectively - a record never before achieved by a New Zealand agency. In 2012, Slavin was named the world's most awarded writer in the report.

Says Slavin: "Anomaly is an incredibly exciting company, one that genuinely plays in a new space. I'm thrilled to be joining the team."
