Publicis Mojo, Auckland has scored a coup by attracting hot London art director Andy Amadeo to be based at the agency from early next year for a yet unspecified period of time. Most recently Amadeo has been ECD of Mustoes. From 1999 to 2001 he was CD at Lowe Howard-Spink before a short stint as ECD at CDP. Amadeo has worked at most of London’s hot shops including WCRS, Delaney Fletcher, Chiat\ Day and Simons Palmer. His awards’ haul includes the Print Grand Prix at Cannes in 2000 for Stella Artois. The campaign also won two Gold and three Silvers at Campaign Press plus a Gold at Creative Circle. He also scored a Gold and Silver Lion, a D&AD Silver, Silver at Campaign Press plus Creative Circle Silver for Nike.

Looks like David Droga's lovechild. Is he David Droga's lovechild?

Cool. Just what advertising in the southern hemisphere needs - more poms!

Yeah, we wouldn't want creatives who understand the cultural landscape of the markets they're communicating to. If we had that we might end up with marketing communications that connect with viewers and hold some relevance for them. We wouldn't want that, would we?

His use of the term "cultural landscape" aside, he's right though. When will we as Australians fucking grow up and accept people who don't fucking come from here. Riots in Sydney, pom-ist attitudes in advertising, it's the same thing.

"...people who don't come from here..."??
None of us come from here, dickhead. We were all immigrants somewhere along the line.

And having a problem with somebody using terms with more than one syllable that may actually mean something more than can be explained by an episode of The Simpsons, why don't you grow up a little?

The sooner boofheads like you open your minds a little, the sooner this industry will haul it's sad arse out of the black hole in which it's currently wedged.

That'd be a great title for a novel 'Cultural Landscape Wanker'

Isn't "cultural landscape"just a pretentious way of saying "culture"? "Wanker", on the other hand, seems fairly concise...

How small and petty can we be?

To my knowledge, Mr Amadeo has more creative cred than anyone in the region.

From the previous statements, he'll stay that way.

I think people were just stirring mostly. Mr Armadilo will do fine.

You know that's not his name. Armadillos are not native to this cultural landscape.

Hey guys.

Don't know if you noticed but the "pommie creative" is coming to New Zealand, not Australia. Last time I looked at an atlas, New Zealand was still a sovereign state, and a racially more tolerant one than Australia, for that matter.

I know Andy and he's chosen New Zealand for that very reason.
