Nik Studzinski, who previously served as executive creative director at Droga5’s European office, is joining Karmarama as chief creative officer (CCO) and equity partner.
He replaces founder and chief creative officer Dave Buonaguidi, who left the agency last summer.
Of his appointment, Studzinski said: "I've enjoyed an incredible journey with Droga5 and it took something exceptional to make me even think about leaving. Karmarama is a dynamic independent agency with a unique spirit, incredible talent across all the disciplines, and a great offering from advertising and content through to mobile and data.”
He spent the past five years at Droga5 in both New York and London. During his time there, he worked on campaigns for brands including Puma, Mondelez International, and Coca-Cola. He also was one of the founders of the agency’s European office.
Before joining Droga5, he served as creative director at Mother London.
Karmarama’s clients include Honda, Nintendo and Costa Coffee.
