Indie agency, YoungShand, has bolstered its Creative Team with the addition of Hannah Habgood as Head of Copy and Julie Spedding as Senior Art Director.

YoungShand is adding more depth to their Creative Team on the back of three years of growth as they look forward to an exciting 2021/22.

Hannah Habgood, who is returning to the industry from maternity leave, joins the team as Head of Copy. Hannah brings with her over ten year’s experience both at home and overseas. Hannah’s mission is to create impactful work worth leaving her gorgeous wee boy for – a measure of success shared by YoungShand ECD, Anne Boothroyd.

“As soon as I met Hannah, it was clear that she is passionate about creating insightful, human-centred work and has the skills to deliver it. I am excited to have Hannah on the team contributing to our creative output”, says Anne Boothroyd.

“Post-maternity leave, my priorities have become clearer. That’s why I’m excited that YoungShand is where I’m heading. An interesting, diverse range of clients who do good for people and look to the future, an empathetic and fun group of talented people, plus close proximity to the Banh Mi at Fusion Cafe – what more could you ask for, really?” says Hannah.

Also joining YoungShand’s creative lineup is Julie Spedding. Jules has been working with the team for a few months in a freelance capacity and joins as a Senior Art Director, adding further depth to the indie agencies creative and craft capabilities.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Jules for a while now. She is one of those rare creatives who are not only deeply talented but knows how to make great ideas happen. I am thrilled to have Jules on the team full time”, says Anne.

“I am really excited to join the YoungShand family. It is always a pleasure working with Anne. She’s got an incredible vision to create meaningful work that has a purpose and will truly make a difference. That combined with the talent of the rest of the team, who are a brilliant bunch of people, meant it was a no-brainer for me”, says Julie.

Both roles are effective immediately, adding to YoungShand’s integrated agency mix.
