San Francisco integrated advertising agency Duncan/Channon has rebranded with a new identity and website, and leadership team, to mark a new chapter in the agency’s future.
The agency, which has also removed the slash from its name to become simply Duncan Channon, unveils its new look today. To accompany the launch, the agency has also added an irreverent trolling guide to accompany its new launch that comically anticipates comments to the new look.
Leadership changes at Duncan Channon include founder and partner Robert Duncan now becoming chairman and founder and partner Parker Channon the agency’s first chief marketing officer. Anne Elisco-Lemme now leads all creative work as the sole executive creative director. The agency also elevated Jamie Katz as the office’s director of account management and Rachel Hermansader as its first director of marketing and business development.
Katz will take over chief responsibility for account management from chief executive Andy Berkenfield, who previously played this role. Both Katz and Hermansader were group account directors prior to their promotions. Robert Duncan will continue to be involved in the agency’s creative work.
“Our new look and leadership double down on the belief that human creativity, in all its magnificent messiness, is more essential than ever in an increasingly algorithmic world,” said Duncan Channon founder and chairman Robert Duncan. “This talented team is poised to accelerate the agency’s growth and I remain ready to keep the fires burning under our work and inimitable culture.”
