Coffee ‘n Clothes blog launches CNC Agency
Coffee ‘n Clothes, the brand that began as an Instagram hashtag, announced the official launch of its creative experience agency called CNC Agency. Ryan Glick launched Coffee ‘n Clothes as a coffee- and fashion-based Instagram account in 2014, which grew into a physical event space in New York City for brand popups and takeovers.
CNC has been launched numerous campaigns over the last year, including an “IRL” Barbie Dream House to celebrate Forever21’s Barbie Summer 2022 and 2023 Collection, a mobile activation for the Netflix series “Love is Blind” and a Miami Happy House takeover for Aerie.
The agency will focus on brand events that integrate real world and digital experiences. Staying true to its roots, it will work with retail, product and content creation with the goal of connecting to fashion-conscious consumers.
WPP names chief people officer
WPP has appointed Lindsay Pattison as global chief people officer. Pattison had most recently been WPP’s global chief client officer, leading that company’s relationships with major clients since 2018.
Pattison had taken an active role in developing talent at WPP, launching the Walk the Talk initiative to help develop senior women and sponsoring the Elevate program for Black female talent.
“Lindsay is extremely highly regarded across the industry as a leader who can identify and develop top talent, and as a trusted partner to global clients,” WPP CEO Mark Read said in a statement. “She has a deep understanding of our business, people and culture, and her strong commercial focus will help to drive our future people strategy.”
Pattison succeeds Jennifer Remling, who is leaving WPP to be chief people officer at Warner Bros. Discovery. Pattison will work with Remling on the transition until they take their respective new roles in January 2024.
