Joining CHI&Partners this week are talented creative team Jo Griffin and Tom Dixon, who are coming to the agency after three years at rival London shop WCRS.
As the team responsible for the multi-award winning campaign ‘Missing Type’ for NHS Blood and Transplant, Jo Griffin and Tom Dixon are arriving at CHI with an impressive CV so far. The campaign was exceptionally well received across trade and industry press. It won one Gold and two Bronze Cannes Lions, three D&AD Wood Pencils, a One Show Silver and Merit, Gold at Creative Circle, three Golds at the DMAs, the Grand Prix and two Winners at Drum Social Buzz Awards, and won Gold at the Campaign Big Awards, as well as the prestigious Paul Arden Award. Brands such as Microsoft and Boots were involved internationally, as blood services in countries across the globe picked up the idea.
They also created campaigns such as ‘Exporting is GREAT’ for UKTI, which won two Golds and a Bronze at the DMAs, was shortlisted in the Integrated Campaign category at Creative Circle, and was crowned B2B winner at Masters of Marketing last year.
Whilst at WCRS Griffin and Dixon also made campaigns for Churchill, Sky Cinema, King, E-ON and B&Q, winning a Campaign Aerial Award for their radio ad ‘Save Someone’s Life While Going About Yours’, tackling sickle cell disease with NHS Blood and Transplant.
Griffin has been named one of the 2017 Future Female Creative Leaders at Creative Equals 30, and alongside creative partner Dixon made the Hospital Club 100, which celebrates the UK creative industry’s best and brightest. Previously both Griffin and Dixon took placements at VCCP and WCRS after graduating in 2014 before joining WCRS later that year.
The team will join the creative department at CHI&Partners and will work on accounts including Argos, TalkTalk, McVities, News UK, British Gas, Toyota and Lexus.

Micky Tudor, Joint ECD at CHI&Partners, said: “We’re incredibly excited to have Jo & Tom joining us, they are lovely, talented and ambitious in equal measure and we can’t wait to create some famous work together.”
