Spotlight On NW Creative: Coinstar, et al

Publicis In the West is Seattle’s biggest agency. They have over 200 employees, one of whom is Chief Creative Officer, Bob Moore, formerly of Wieden + Kennedy and Fallon.
According to its Web site, the French-owned shop doing business in Seattle makes over 50 TV spots a year for T-Mobile. Moore is leading the charge on that account.
Other accounts on the roster include Coinstar, the Washington Lottery, KEXP (which rocks), Real Networks and Ben Bridge Jewelers. According to Agency Spy, the agency lost its HP business to BBDO.
Here’s a spot the agency made earlier this year for Coinstar:

By the way, Publicis In the West lists some pretty choice jobs on their site–Creative Director/Copywriter, ACD/Copywriter and Brand Planner to be exact. I’m tempted to apply, even though the postings have been up awhile and I don’t have the reel, laundry list of awards or finishing school background Moore would like.

    I think the spot is too simmilar to this one

    As you can see it was done in 2008 by a Romanian agency.

    Publicis in the West also has a small office in Boise that basically acts as a satellite of the Seattle office.

    That was awesome. Coming from Seattle, I used to work down the street from this company and I never knew what they did. Thanks for clearing that up!
