Introducing Executive Creative Director, Chris James

30 July 2019

We are thrilled to welcome Chris James as the new Executive Creative Director for Australia.

With a creative and digital career spanning more than two decades, Chris brings a wealth of expertise spread across digital, branding, product, experience design and communications. 

Over the course of his career he’s been ranked #2 Digital Creative Director globally by the Won Report, #1 in Australia/NZ by Campaign Brief and led the digital creative offering for some of Australia's largest and most awarded agencies — most recently spending 2.5 years as Digital ECD and Head of Creative Technology at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne. 

As Executive Creative Director, Chris’ role is focused on further driving the Imagination vision to create world-class physical experiences powered by technology.

Commenting on his appointment, Chris said: “I’ve been working with Imagination since February as a digital consultant and I was flattered when the business approached me to take the ECD gig. The opportunity to lead a creative team that already delivers brilliant solutions that marry the physical and digital worlds was an offer too good to be missed. In the last 6 months Imagination has opened my eyes to a world of creative and engagement opportunities outside advertising and I can truly say I’m like a kid in a candy store.”

Heath Campanaro, Director of Imagination Australia added: “In such a short time Chris has demonstrated his ability to lead our creative offering across the board. Chris’ appointment is a defining moment for us and demonstrates our commitment to a future where technology, measurement and data are at the heart of connected brand experiences.”
