In some very surprising news, Nick Wooster has joined J.C. Penney as their new Creative Director. Since leaving his post as Creative Director at the Neiman Marcus Group a year ago, Nick’s been credited for doing some consulting work for both Thom Browne as well as the Gilt Groupe. He’s crafted some impeccable showings at the PROJECT Tradeshow in Vegas the past two seasons and even took a trip out to Japan to support the latest PROJECT Wooster showings. Beyond this, Nick’s collaborated directly with a few brands on some product over the past few months including Happy Socks and Leffot.
When a brand looks to revamp their entire image, it’s going to have to start with leadership. Nick joins a slew of new hires including a few former Apple execs so he’s definitely in good company. There just couldn’t have been a better time to come in as the new Creative Director than now and we wish Woost God nothing but the best.
