Crayons has announced the appointment of Manoj Jacob as executive creative director. Jacob will lead creative at Crayons.
 
He moves from BBDO's Bengaluru office. 
 
Samir Datar, chief strategy officer, Crayons, said, “Absolutely thrilled to have Manoj on board. For a long time, we were looking for the right person who will understand the vision we have for the agency and will help us in making it come alive. We are transforming ourselves into a lab where we experiment with communication ideas, beyond the conventional approach to advertising. Across many conversations, it became apparent that Manoj will be the perfect person to lead this transformation.”
 
Jacob said, “There are many agencies that claim to be integrated, but very few that are both integrated and independent. The very fact that Crayons has resisted the temptation of going the way most agencies have, speaks to my soul. And what better way for me to mark my Independence Day than by throwing in my lot with an independent Indian agency, doing work that’s truly free of corporate baggage?”
 
Jacob has also worked with Ogilvy, DDB Mudra, Soho Square, Havas, and Contract Advertising.
