MISHA McDONALD JOINS JUNIOR, BRISBANE AS SENIOR WRITER


Hot Brisbane shop Junior has lured Whybin\ TBWA Sydney writer Misha McDonald to take on the role of senior writer. The move to Junior brings to an end the connection between McDonald and CD Garry Horner, who have worked together for 10 years, first at DDB Sydney and most recently at Whybin\TBWA.
McDonald will bring to Junior the experience he’s gained on many campaigns for his namesake McDonalds as well as Kettle Chips and Wonder White and most recently his Tekken work for Playstation. “We like the quirk in Misha’s work,” says Junior’s CD, Steve Minon, “and we like the maturity. He’s the perfect combo meal deal for us.”

We hear Brisbane is a go-ahead kinda town, so congrats, Mish. If the Brissy suburb of Bowen is good enough for Baz Lurhmann it should be good enough for the rest of us creative types. These days they have some tidy facilities up there ... although no doubt you will still do all your serious work in Sydney.

Who will be next ?????

From DDB (In it's current state of affairs) to Junior - wait a minute, that's a step up isn't it?

Hey Misha,
I'm sure you'll turn Brissy on fire, just remember once you head north from Sydney the next great Chinese restaurant is in Singapore!

Mmmm, if I was Mish I'd be proving I've outgrown Garry by joining a shop called 'Senior', and I wouldn't be moving to Brisbane.

11:01am, isn't it more about the quality of work one does rather than where it's done?

Is laying out a catalogue in Sydney for a multinational better than a nice TV campaign for a mid-size agency in a 'lesser' state?

All advertising people from down south - please stay there. We'd like to keep Brissy advertising relatively free of Sydneysiders. Thank you

Maybe he just feels like a change of scene. Less traffic jams, reasonable cost of living, less wankers....

Like 11:01am.
