Karmarama has boosted its creative department with a series of appointments to bolster its integrated offering.
The agency has hired a new creative director and two creative teams to ensure the delivery of best-in-class creative across the entire customer journey.

Caitlin Ryan, Group Executive Creative Director at Karmarama, said: “We are one of the few genuinely media-neutral, integrated ad agencies - for that to work, you need best-in-class, highly talented creatives across the disciplines who are brilliant at collaborating. Easy to say - harder to do. Which is why Karmarama is attracting such top level talent from many different places.”
