SAN FRANCISCO, May. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The principals of ATTIK (www.attik.com) are very proud to announce three new hires for the global creative agency's San Francisco office. All appointments are effective immediately, and include David Ziganay as senior digital art director, Scott Howe as senior interactive producer, and Suyash Joshi as design technologist.
David Ziganay holds a Graphic Design degree from San Francisco's Academy of Art University. As a former art director for both Limited Brands (focused on Bath and Body Works) and Abercrombie & Fitch (where he supported the A&F, Hollister, Gilly Hicks and Ruehl brands), David has extensive experience successfully translating immersive store and lifestyle experiences into the digital realm. A veteran of many co-branded Scion sponsorships and lifestyle and musical events with roots in publishing, entertainment and interactive media and a strong passion for automotive culture, David's additional brand experiences span adidas, ConAgra, Discover Card, Intel, Jones New York, Konami USA, LEI Jeans, and Revlon, among many others.
Scott Howe is originally from London, England, where he studied marketing and media at Middlesex University. He brings over 15 years of agency experience to his new post with ATTIK. Since 2008, Scott has worked in Seattle as a project manager, handling large-scale web projects for a long list of major brands including Microsoft, for which he managed the development and launch of new global websites for MS Visual Studio and Microsoft HPC in 26 countries. Since beginning his career at NBC Entertainment Interactive, he has held account management positions at Ascentium, HL2, Publicis Groupe, Wunderman, WPP, Y&R and ZAAZ. Experiences earned supporting some of the world's most prestigious luxury, fashion, financial, CPG, media and business-to-business brands, as well as Scott's hands-on role in developing and delivering MarthaStewart.com, HTC.com, and the IDE for Microsoft Visual Studio, all make him an excellent fit for ATTIK.
ATTIK's new design technologist Suyash Joshi earned his degree in Computer Science from the University of Michigan in 2010. After gaining industry experience through internships and overseas study programs in Taiwan and Japan, Suyash landed as a software engineer for Silicon Valley-based healthcare software provider Quantros.
