New Appointments blog Team

Thanks to securing some major new projects with some great businesses, our teams have expanded again and we’re delighted to welcome them in.

The new additions are senior planner Cynthia Bernard, senior designer Dave Simmons, senior copywriter Ben Carson and social account executive Hayley Toothill. Craig Hill, who has been with us for six years in the design team, has also been promoted to senior designer.

Like all our team members, the new recruits get up to some interesting things outside of the office – and that’s really important when it comes to creativity and generating great ideas when it’s time to get down to business.

Hayley has set herself a challenge of writing a daily food blog this year (so far so good!), Cynthia is an award-nominated playwright and published writer, Dave is in to fashion photography, and in his spare time Ben likes reading and travelling, and reading about travelling.

All have experience of working on major household names such as P&G, Olay, Crocs, Mercedes, and SEAT too, and have worked at a national and international level.

Cynthia Bernard joins us most recently from a role with London-based Emperor Design but has previously worked for globally- and nationally-recognised firms including Interbrand.

Dave Simmons, has been a designer for nine years and joins us from a Manchester-based design firm, Magnetic North. Prior to that, Dave lived in Sydney where he worked for Landor and Monster on internationally-renowned brands.

Ben Carson has 18 years copywriting experience and as a senior copywriter at Atletico International in Barcelona. He has worked for clients in the automotive, beauty and financial sector, as well as for Cosmopolitan magazine and The London Stock Exchange.

Hayley joins us from a Sheffield-based marketing agency where she worked on First TransPennine Express, Sheffield Hallam University and First Bus, as well as McVities and Castrol.

Propaganda’s Managing Director, Laura Kynaston, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Cynthia, Ben, Dave and Hayley to the team. It’s great that Craig has been promoted and we congratulate him on his new role as well.

“We work with our clients to unlock business growth potential and we continue to do this by attracting and retaining people of the very highest standard with major brand experience to draw on.”
