Spotlight on Women Creatives: Annie Price, creative director, J Walter Thompson Melbourne

Annie-Price-2018.jpgAs part of a daily series Campaign Brief shines the spotlight on the top female executive creative directors and creative directors in Australia...

Annie Price is creative director at J Walter Thompson Melbourne
Annie's been described as an 'Art Di-Writer'. Trained as an art director but equally passionate about writing.
At JWT Melbourne, Annie works on Harris Scarfe, the Radio Rentals Group, Mondelez, Drummond Golf & Treasury Wines, amongst others. Prior to this, she spent a year at the Brand Agency on Australia's most trusted retail brand, Bunnings. And several years at McCann Melbourne where her team's VLine work won a Cannes Grand Prix for Creative Effectiveness and three bronze Cannes Lions.
Annie-Price-experience.jpgStill as passionate about making ads now as she was 26 years ago, she believes the best possible work comes from strong client relationships and healthy collaboration. The work she's most proud of; the work she's won awards with; the work that works hardest... has come from fostering those relationships.
Annie also loves to nurture fresh new creative talent. She's currently on the MADC committee, co-running their inaugural Wunderkinds program. And over the years she's tutored and run AWARD School, participated in the MADC Ignition program and the 'Who's Yr Momma' mentoring programme.

One of the best in the business!

I second that said:

The fact that her press release refers to 'her team's' work and not 'her work' speaks volumes about Annie.
Everything a mentor should be.

Always bright, always busy and a mind like a steel trap. She'll bang out 20 headlines over a cuppa, scamp up five different key visual options in the length of time it takes to eat an iced vovo, find the nuggets in a junior team's concepts and reposition a national brand all before lunch. While single handedly keeping the vintage garment sector afloat.
