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. 

Chris James - driving the Imagination vision

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.”
