On May 7th, Adrian Preda (Predu) posted on Facebook an image with the 1st day in a new agency (most Romanians working in advertising or liking the domain spotted immediately Friends’ attic) and, soon after, Friends Advertising invited the journalist to come meet its new Creative Director.
During the meeting, Preda said that his aim is to take all that is good in Friends’ creative department and push all to a whole new level.
On the other side, Sorin Tranca will switch towards strategy and get more involved in new projects and work tools.
Friends is famous for its DNA within the industry, as “Work Hard and Have Fun”. I hope me coming in the agency will add to this DNA the idea of “Go Forward”
