303 MullenLowe Perth has appointed globally acclaimed creative Chris Swift as Creative Lead.

'Swifty' is one of Perth's great creative exports with an outstanding creative record with over 30 international awards including Pencils, D&AD, numerous gold at Cannes and a Grand Clio.

Swift began his career in Perth before heading off to Melbourne, Singapore then ultimately New York, where he spent 10 years. From 2008 Chris joined JWT New York and was behind the global work for the likes of Rolex, Smirnoff and the highly decorated 'Burma Campaign' for Human Rights Watch.

He moved to McCann in 2012 as VP Creative Director where he worked on the global re-brand of American Airlines and Chevrolet. His next move was to Ogilvy New York and Group Creative Director, where he worked until returning to Perth recently.

"Say the name 'Swifty' around the corridors of Perth agencies, and you'll see creative directors animate every which way. He's a creative all-star, and oh yes, he's back," said Richard Berney ECD 303 MullenLowe Perth.

"I'm very happy to be back in Perth!," said Swift. "Thanks to Nick Cleaver, Derry, René and Richard for making it happen. I'm excited to join the team and it's nice to be on the heels of Bianca and Melita who recently joined. There is a great mix of talented people at 303 MullenLowe and they're just generally nice.'
