AKQA’s Portland office has hired a new creative director to lead the charge in the Rose City. Josh Combs joins the crew in Portland to support and nurture the creative teams.
Combs comes to Portland from Minnesota, where he was creative director at Fallon. He held the same position at JWT in New York and Paris before that. He has over a decade’s experience implementing digitally-focused products and services for top brands. His creative work has been recognized over the years by Cannes Lions, The One Show, and Communication Arts, among others.
Combs will report to Group Creative Director Ginny Golden in Portland.
“AKQA’s Portland office has seen some significant business growth in the last five years. Josh is a proven creative leader that will help us continue this momentum, delivering more world-class work for our growing client list. His passion for telling big brand stories in modern innovative ways is what makes him a perfect fit for AKQA,” said Golden.
“I’m excited to join the growing creative team here in Portland. AKQA isn’t just looking to make another ad for the world to gloss over; it’s about much more than that. They’re creating a place where ideas, powered by innovation, can move brands forward. And I am looking forward to diving right in,” said Combs on his new role.
