Jeremy Hancock lured to top Sydney creative design company DD8 in creative director role

jeremy-HANCOCK.jpgJeremy Hancock, former founding partner and creative director of Where There's Smoke and former creative director of XYZ Music Channels, Channel V, V Hits, Max and CMC, has joined creative design company DD8 as creative director.

Hancock joins DD8 creative director Jean-Christophe Danoy in what DD8 believes will be a force to be reckoned with as the company moves into its next phase, broadening scope and expanding its current creative capacity.

Hancock's brief is to help propel the fast growing business into new products and areas. A Swiss Army knife of experience, Jeremy commands a creative skill set across branding, design, commercial production both long and short form.
His adventurous approach is the perfect counterpart to DD8's current broadcast design expertise. "It's an exciting time for DD8. We're well into our second year and going from strength to strength. The combination of Jean-Christophe and Jeremy gives us the best of two worlds. Both are respected visionaries and mentors of the industry. And Jeremy's substantial entrepreneurial experience can only benefit our young business," says executive producer Adam Duncombe.

He has the ability to look at a situation and dissect it completely, perfectly and with grace and style. I can't wait to see what Hancock brings to DD8!"

Says Hancock: "I am thrilled to join DD8. To be completely honest, I feel very lucky to come on board at such a pivotal time in the business. DD8 is passionate, nimble and hungry. The work to date, in such a short time, already demonstrates a premium creative offering, and the calibre of its client list speaks volumes. This company is a loaded gun, the pin is cocked and we are squeezing the trigger. I am really excited to be here."

DD8 opened its doors in early 2013. Work includes rebranding Nine's GO! Channel, TEN's Glasgow Commonwealth Games and Sochi Winter Olympics, new identities for the ABC's The Drum, Nine's Big Brother, and SBS's The World Game.
