New Hires at Rizen Creative

Okay, so it’s been a while since we’ve done a ‘new hires’ post, but that’s not to say that things are stagnant everywhere. Case in point…

At Rizen Creative, they’ve added a couple of new faces to their staff.

Tyler Reitz has joined the agency in April as Account & Traffic Coordinator. Tyler was previously Creative Projects Manager at FusionSet, and also worked on the client service side at Donahoe Pace & Partners.

Rizen’s most recent addition to their staff is Jeremy James, whose first day was today, or so says the latest picture (as of this writing) on their Facebook Page. Prior to joining Rizen — as an Art Director we assume — Jeremy spent the past seven or so years in a similar role at Donahoe Pace.

Congratulations to both.

Mitchell + Palmer bulks up with creative muscle

Mitchell + Palmer in Boise has added two well-known names to their team: copywriter and creative director, Tom Donahoe, and art director and designer, Jeremy “Jerms” Lanningham.

Donahoe, formerly of Donahoe Pace and Partners joins the agency as a partner and co-creative director. He has worked on brands, like Alaska and Horizon Airlines, Pepsi, Oberto, and Coors Light. Closer to home, Donahoe has been responsible for creative work on the Humanitarian Bowl, Boise State University, Cap Ed, and United Heritage.

Lanningham, who specializes in design and illustration, joins the agency from NKTRNL, an illustration and design studio he founded in 1999. His clients include Burton, Gnu, Omatic Snowboards, TransWorld Media and 686. Locally he has worked with Newt & Harolds, Flying M Coffeehouse, Prestige, Smith Sport Optics, and the Boise Weekly.

Congratulations to both Tom and Jerms.  And hearty ‘well done’ to Mitchell + Palmer for snagging two extremely talented people.
