Denvir Marketing has appointed Ross Perth, marketing manager for Scottish National Galleries as its creative director.
The new role replaces that of design director which was held by Paul Docherty who left the agency earlier this month.
Perth will begin his new role next month, once finished at The National Galleries, where he became well known in the industry in the last year having won both the Grand Prix at the Roses Design Awards in Manchester and the Grand Prix for Scottish Design Awards earlier this year for his ‘Cans’ display which promoted the Andy Warhol exhibition last year.
Suzanne George, managing director of Denvir Marketing said that Perth’s appointment completed her search for a new management line up at the company following Kirsty Leiberthal’s appointment as brands director last October from BD Network.
George told The Drum; “What we were looking for was someone who wasn’t a traditional creative director, art director, design director, there probably wasn’t a label as we were looking for someone who was happy with the creative process and was happy to apply that process whatever the medium was. That’s what Denvir is all about. We say we understand brands, we understand consumers and then we just find the best ways to connect, so really we needed a creative director who was happy to work as fluidly as that.”
