ARGONAUT Adds New Creative Director

Chean Wei Law Joins From Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Wieden + Kennedy

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 7, 2013) - San Francisco-based ad agency ARGONAUT announced today the appointment of creative director Chean Wei Law, who brings a wealth of experience as interactive design director at Crispin Porter + Bogusky and as art director with Wieden + Kennedy and JWT.

"I'm stoked to have the opportunity to work with Chean," said Robbie Whiting, co-founder and head of creative technology and production. "We share the same maker culture mentality of creating beautiful things while solving big problems. He has a genuine passion and natural gift for design and creative production. I can't wait to start making things with him."

"The power of creativity is awesome. I love bringing happiness to people through design. It solves the innovation problem, which is exactly what draws me to the crew at ARGONAUT," said Law. "Everyone is all about solving the big, advertising and non-advertising, problems that very few have the stamina to tackle. It's such a natural fit for me to be here."

Law most recently worked with Crispin Porter + Bogusky in Boulder leading the design department where he oversaw a plethora of brands, such as Kraft's Jell-O and Mac and Cheese, Microsoft, Old Navy, Domino's Pizza and Coke Zero. Highlights from his work at Crispin Porter + Bogusky includes Jell-O Mood Meter -- a real-time social media stunt monitoring smiley and sad face emoticons while broadcasting the general mood of the Twitter-verse -- as well as Best Buy Coverage Tracker -- a map of signal data collected from real people. Law also led design of Kraft Mac & Cheese "Dinner Not Art," a tongue-in-cheek campaign encouraging digital macaroni art with a free iPad app, and received over 20 international awards from Cannes Lions International Festival and One Show to name a few.
