Aussie creative duo Karsten Jurkschat and Alex Little snare associate CD roles at McCann NYC

Karsten Jurkschat and Alex Little-web.jpg Award-winning Aussie creative team Karsten Jurkschat and Alex Little have departed Ogilvy Melbourne, landing associate creative director roles at McCann New York.
 
In 2015, Jurkschat and Little were named Australia's Young Creatives of the Year by the Association for Data-Driven Marketing & Advertising (ADMA) and, this year, were named Australia's Cannes Young Lion cyber competition winners. Their joint creative work for clients has led to seven awards at the 2017 Cannes International Festival of Creativity, including a Gold Lion in the Creative Data category. Most recently, their work was recognized with several Clio awards in the Innovation, Product Design, and Digital/Mobile App categories, as well as a D&AD Impact pencil.
"Alex and Karsten are, first and foremost, a great team -- they've produced award-winning work for national and international clients like AAMI Insurance, BP, and PUMA. Their determination to approach old problems with new perspectives is crucial in the ever-changing marketing landscape," says Sean Bryan, co-chief creative officer, McCann New York.

"Their work speaks for itself. We are excited to welcome them to the McCann family, and can't wait to see what they do next," adds Tom Murphy, co-chief creative officer, McCann New York.
 
At Ogilvy Melbourne Jurkschat and Little were creative partners, helping lead new business wins and secure the agency's first Cannes Gold Lion, propelling the agency to the #3 Innovation Agency of the Year on the Cannes Lion Global Creativity Report 2017.
 
Both Jurkschat and Little have held tutoring positions at AWARD School Melbourne, a program that prepares young talent for careers in copywriting and art directing.
