John Martin, formerly creative director of Nike Action Sports and Outdoor, has joined Portland-based ad agency Roundhouse as creative director. Martin, with the footwear brand for 12 years, left Nike
in 2013 to co-found HitnQuit, an oddly-named photo storage mobile app. Guess that didn't go so well.
Of Martin joining the agency, Roundhouse Partner and ECD Joe Sundby said: "John has
amazing experience and vision across brand, digital and retail, and knows how to inspire his team to bring out their very best work. He's the perfect person to be leading our creative team as our
business continues to expand."
Martin has nothing but kind words for Roundhouse, saying: "I love that, at Roundhouse, design and craft are at the heart of everything they do - an ethos
that is incredibly exciting and empowering for a creative team. Another big draw for me is their top-notch digital executions and A-list global brands and local clients. I'm excited to be a part of
this innovative and talented team."
