Linda Honan, Senior Creative at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne leaves Australia on Friday to take up a creative position at BBDO New York commencing July 24. Linda will report directly to David Lubars and Bill Bruce. Lubars has been at BBDO NY for 18 months and has not only been on a new business winning streak but has also lifted the creative credentials of the agency significantly by hiring creative superstars like Eric Silver to head up Fedex. The combination of his creative leadership and his recruitment of the best creative blood around has resulted in them winning NY agency of the year.
Linda joined the creative team at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne in 2004 and has produced some outstanding work including the highly awarded Dulux "Ghost" ad. Prior to that she was at Whybin TBWA during which time she won a bronze lion for Grosby "Spider" and before that at D'Arcy where she created the Mars 'Earth" Campaign that picked up ATV Best of Show.

Bloody hell Linda, almost a week and no reaction to your news. Not a sausage.

As Oscar Wide reputedly said "There is only one thing worse than being talked about and that is not being talked about."

Nice shoes in New York, apparently.

Yeah, she's a fair dinkum Sheila.

Strewth, those Yank Bruces are gonna love her.

Her work is tastier than a shrimp on the barbie, too.

Plus, it doesn't hurt to have Rolf Harris as your uncle.

I just hope she remembers to pack some Vegemite in her suitcase.

They don't have any in America.

Or kangaroos.

That's the only thing I missed when I worked there.

And koala bears.

Isn't it amazing what a pic can do for readership levels.
Albeit a very, very, very old pic.

Strewth, cobber. That's not fair dinkum.

That Sheila looks around 25 or 26 to my trained eye.

You're being a bit rotten, I reckon.

Careful, she might get Uncle Rolf to come over and take you out behind the dunnies for a thumping.

Onya, Lindo.

Good on you Linda.

You're 26, gorgeous and got one of the hottest gigs in NY.

Congratulations. You deserve it.

Don't forget your Aussie mates. We love you.

And we'll miss you.
