Street Talk for January 12, 2018
Corey Bartha

Corey Bartha, director of integrated production at Publicis Seattle, will be assuming the same role effective January 22 at Wonderful Agency, The Wonderful Company’s in-house, full-service advertising and marketing agency. Bartha follows recent hire Amber Justis, who stepped into the new position of executive creative director at Wonderful Agency last month. Both will report to agency chief creative officer Darren Moran. Bartha will oversee all content production, including video, print, social, activation, and experiential, while Justis will help manage and direct the creative work across all Wonderful products, including Wonderful Pistachios and Wonderful Halos. An award-winning producer who has worked at shops like Ground Zero, Ogilvy and CP+B, Bartha has also held various top production positions at Wieden + Kennedy, including the head of integrated production roles in both the U.S. and Amsterdam. He moved in-house in 2014 to head up all production at Quiksilver before joining Publicis in his current role in 2015. Bartha’s noted commercials and activations range from big Super Bowl Spots like Chrysler’s “Halftime in America” and T-Mobile’s “Drake,” to hilarious culture-driving work like the Old Spice Isaiah Mustafa spots and the Dodge Durango Ron Burgundy films, to category-shattering brand launches like Dodge Dart’s “How to Change Cars Forever” and Virgin Cola’s arrival in the U.S. Justis meanwhile is an Emmy nominated creative director with over 19 years of experience on famous global campaigns. She created the “Evolution of Barbie” work while at BBDO San Francisco, which introduced a new line of dolls of varying body types and skin tones to the world. The campaign garnered numerous industry accolades and snagged a Time Magazine cover story declaring “Barbie was back.” Prior to joining BBDO, Justis held creative roles with Facebook, AKQA, Mekanism, Eleven, FCB, Ogilvy, Huge and Cliff Freeman, earning numerous awards including Cannes Lions, Clios, One Show and D&AD for clients like American Express, Cotton, Motorola, MTV, Trojan, Bravo, and Kodak.

Carbon is a full-service creative studio specializing in design, color, visual effects and motion graphics. Carbon is part of the Whitehouse Post community of companies. Whitehouse maintains production and finishing partnerships with sister companies Cap Gun Collective and Carbon VFX, as well as with design-driven production company Gentleman Scholar....
