AnalogFolk London, the independent digital agency, has made two senior creative appointments and established new Associate Creative Director roles.

The agency has hired Seth Jones from Tribal Worldwide (London) and Steve Whittington from Dare. Both join the agency as Associate Creative Directors, alongside Vikesh Bhatt who was promoted to the role at the end of 2013. The three Associate Creative Directors will report to Simon Richings, the Executive Creative Director at AnalogFolk London.

At Tribal Worldwide, Jones is a Senior Creative working across brands including Volkswagen, Guinness and Morrisons. He has created numerous award-winning campaigns, such as ‘Fly' for Virgin Trains and ‘One Beat Ahead’ for Drench. Prior to Tribal, Jones worked at a number of direct and digital agencies including Elvis, Soup and Isobar in various creative roles. He joins AnalogFolk London at the end of the month.

Whittington was previously a Design Director at Dare where he played a pivotal role in the digital transformation of the Post Office, including a complete overhaul of the company website. More recently he has worked on EE’s digital business across all platforms. Whittington has also worked on The FA and BMW.

Bhatt joined AnalogFolk in 2012 as a Senior Art Director and has led the creative output on the AkzoNobel business, for brands including Dulux and Cuprinol. Prior to AnalogFolk, Bhatt was Senior Art Director at LBi.

Bhatt, Jones and Whittington will spearhead the creative output on numerous accounts throughout the agency.

Richings, who joined AnalogFolk during April 2013 from Tribal Worldwide, said: ‘Working with such a diverse set of clients has given us the opportunity to bring in some truly great talent and introduce these positions to drive our creative output. As ECD, it’s enormously satisfying to see such expertise coming together.’
