Joining WONGDOODY's LA-based team are 3 new hires, and 2 little kittens

WONGDOODY Adds 3 New Staffers and 2 New Kittens to Team

Joining WONGDOODY’s LA-based team this month are three hires across creative, creative studio and account services, and two little kittens.

Colin Hodges, copywriter and songwriter for Warner Music moves over from Campbell Ewald following the success of his work for Travelocity, IHOP and Kaiser Permanente. Hodges is contributing across WONGDOODY accounts and new business efforts. 

Hodges has experience penning lines for Taco Bell, Kaiser Permanente, IHOP, and Travelocity. Starting his career in television production, he’s also spent time at The Dr. Phil Show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, The Rachel Ray Show, and Bridezillas. “WONGDOODY is the Beyoncé of creative shops. It’s been consistently pumping out pioneering, fearless work for the past 20+ years and shows no signs of handing over the crown any time soon,” said Hodges, “So when the opportunity to work with a team of super-smart, super-talented people presented itself, I had a pretty easy decision to make. I couldn’t be more excited to join the family!”  

Agency Production Studio Veteran CJ Cantara joins as a studio artist. With over 16 years of experience in Graphic Design, Print Production Management and Retouching skills at lauded shops that include eg+/BBDO, Midnight oil, Pitch, and ASG/ Spark!, CJ brings a design prowess that would be a cornerstone of any creative team. Having worked extensively for brands that include AT&T, Netflix, Nestle, Burger King, and Pepsi, CJ brings a genuinely fresh perspective to Wongdoody.

Agency-world newcomer, Sophie Rudoff has joined WONGDOODY as a project manager working closely with June Cleaver is Dead and The Mother Board teams. Sophie joined WONGDOODY as a temp but wowed the agency with her British accent and work ethic. Unable to imagine a life without her, they brought her on as a fulltime Jr. Project Manager. She manages the day-to-day workings of June Cleaver Is Dead including The Mother Board, and contributes to new business initiatives. Sophie is also the unofficial/official agency VO artist (see aforementioned British accent).

The two kittens, Wong and Doody, bring their expertise in cuddling and snuggles to the LA office.

The addition of Hodges, Cantara, Rudoff, Wong and Doody signals continued growth for US-based, full-service creative and consumer insight agency WONGDOODY following their May 2018 acquisition by Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology and next-generation services.
