EXCLUSIVE: Aspect, one of the longest-running and best-known creative advertising houses in this business, has just hired Jason Chappelle as its new Executive Creative Director. Chappelle had been at Los Angeles-based Mocean where he had been senior VP/creative director and worked on the marketing materials for the Oscar-nominated (and winning) Bohemian Rhapsody, and box office hits Deadpool 2, The LEGO Movie 2 and The Nun.
