Marketforce has promoted long-serving art director Neil Martin to Head of Art at the agency.

Martin has been with Marketforce since 2011 and is currently Campaign Brief's #1 ranked creative in WA.

He first came to prominence with some smart press work at Ad Impact. In 2010 he won Campaign Brief's The West Australian Caxton competition with Drew Ridley, with a concept for Midalia Steel.

The following year he almost repeated with another ad for Midalia Steel, this time with writer Mark McDonald (who has recently been made Head of Creative for Digitas India). Their Pool Fences ad didn't win our competition, but it did go on to win a national Caxton award for newspaper advertising.

He joined Marketforce in September 2011, and has been involved in most of the agency's best work since then, including Chicken Treat, Internode, WA Electoral Commission, Curtin University and most recently 'The R Word' for Avivo.

Marketforce CCO Paul Coghlan said Martin's promotion was well deserved.

"Not only is Marty an extremely passionate and talented art director, he's also an all-round great human being. He has been immense over the last six months and I am delighted to officially elevate him to Head of Art to continue to help guide the world-class output of the agency."
