Mother London makes 8 key appointments in their global creative team

Ana Balarin and Hermeti Balarin, joint ECDs at Mother London, announce eight new appointments to their creative department, enabling them to continue to cultivate a spirit of creative excellence among the next generation of Mother talent.

The new hires, from as far afield as South Africa, have worked on the leading creative agency’s most well-known recent campaigns, continuing to uphold Mother’s strong reputation for creative excellence that has been built over the past two decades.

Prolific South African creative duo, Jonathan Santana and Xander Smith, join Mother by way of TBWA Paris and Saatchi’s having worked for brands such as Visa and Guinness, with the pair achieving multiple industry accolades including the Grand Prix in Cannes and Yellow Pencil. Their creative collaborations with the likes of OneOhTrix and Richard Dawkins have also earned them features in Dazed & Confused, Wired and It’s Nice That.

Matt Leach and Jess Oudot both took an unorthodox route into advertising, with Leach studying Maths and Oudot beginning her career writing for The Telegraph. They joined JWT in 2008, working for names such as Ann Summers, Tourism Ireland and Kenco on its ‘Coffee vs Gangs’ campaign. They spent the last year at McGarryBowen, contributing to several business successes before joining the creative team at Mother.

Mike Kennedy and Pauline Ashford first met on ‘Singlecreative.com’ and the sparks haven’t stopped since. Their first placement at The Corner saw the pair develop the ‘It’s Blue What Else Matters’ campaign for adidas. They joined Grey London in 2012 where they worked with brands including Vodafone, News UK, Schwartz, Lucozade and Duracell, and earned a spot in Campaign’s ‘Faces To Watch’ this summer.

Lisa Turner-Wray and Raine Allen Miller, met as teenagers at the acclaimed performance arts BRIT School, before studying Sculpture and Illustration at university. Beginning in production roles in advertising, the duo wanted to move into creative. Gaining their first roles at Anomaly, they came to Mother and proved their bright creative talent working on three major projects, including MoneySupermarket’s ‘Epic Builder’.

Hermeti Balarin, ECD at Mother says: "We're delighted to welcome such brilliant and diverse talent to the Mother family.”
