Indie agency YoungShand has bolstered its Creative Team with the addition of Hannah Habgood as Head of Copy and Julie Spedding as Senior Art Director.
Habgood, who returns to the industry from maternity leave, brings over 10 years’ experience locally and overseas.
YoungShand ECD Anne Boothroyd says: “As soon as I met Hannah, it was clear that she is passionate about creating insightful, human-centred work and has the skills to deliver it. I am excited to have Hannah on the team contributing to our creative output.”
Habgood says: “Post-maternity leave, my priorities have become clearer. That’s why I’m excited that YoungShand is where I’m heading. An interesting, diverse range of clients who do good for people and look to the future, an empathetic and fun group of talented people, plus close proximity to the Banh Mi at Fusion Cafe – what more could you ask for, really?”
Also joining YoungShand’s creative lineup is Spedding, who has been working with the team for a few months in a freelance capacity and will add further depth to the agency’s creative and craft capabilities.
Boothroyd says: “I have had the pleasure of working with Jules for a while now. She is one of those rare creatives who are not only deeply talented but knows how to make great ideas happen. I am thrilled to have Jules on the team full time.”
Spedding says: “I am really excited to join the YoungShand family. It is always a pleasure working with Anne. She’s got an incredible vision to create meaningful work that has a purpose and will truly make a difference. That combined with the talent of the rest of the team, who are a brilliant bunch of people, meant it was a no-brainer for me.”
Both roles are effective immediately.
