Art director Christie Wootton has signed with Sydney agency, The Works.
Originally from Melbourne, she was relocated to Sydney by Publicis Mojo's former ECD Ted Royer, after he spotted her work for Greenseas on TV and wrote about it in Campaign Brief's Creative Circle.
Whilst at Mojo Wootton created notable work for Water Aid Australia and was awarded P&G's Best Communication Idea and Best Ad for TV work on Vicks Formula 44.
Most recently, she finished an extended freelance stint at BWM Sydney.
Says Wootton: "The Works offered the opportunity to be a part of a growing agency and to play a part in its development. They have a real ambition and high expectations for what the agency can achieve. It’s an exciting environment to be working in."

What's up with all the ridiculously tidy creative girls on this blog? I'll bet there are vast hordes of mingers moving jobs all the time that are never publicised.

If you have a photo of a hot chick sucking the toe of your itchy foot then I'm sure Lynchy will be happy to publish your story.

If you knew anything about that company you would know they have just done a great campaign for MTV.

The work was different and is rumoured to have done very nicely at the Gongs...

Hey 1:05PM,

Some of the best people in the industry started in DM. Many are still winning awards in the field.

I'd rather be doing a shit-hot mailer than re-art directing rate ads for a crap bank client.

1.05, how many times time do we have to tell dickheads like yourself that DM is the way forward.

Have you heard of the glue society? Have you seen that the majority of their executed ideas are media neutral??? Jason Donovan was a huge idea devised off the back and as part of a P.R. stunt. Sure it had tv and print as executions of the campaign, but it was all response driven.

What about patts melb? Wasn’t the boony idea a sales promotion supported by print and tv.

How about Lowe with Lynx? It all started as an idea to brand a Jet star plane as Lynx jet.

Do you think forward thinking agencies, the likes of The Glue Society, Patts Melb and Lowe, really give a shit where their idea will fit these days in terms of media. I’m sure they don’t have a problem with DM being an integral part of the big idea, if not the lead driver of the campaign.

Look at Dave Bowman & Matty Burton & Luke & vince at Saatchi’s. Shit hot creatives who came from DM and understand it’s importance in advertising today. The industry needs more creatives like them, and the crew at Glue, Patts and Lowe, who will take us to more creative places than you’ll ever see 1.05.

DM isn’t all flyers, letters and brochures my friend. Do you used the internet, have you got a mobile, do you listen to an ipod???? They’re all DM channels that are mainstream this day and age. It’s the Digital Age we live in, but not you obviously. Everything’s direct, you tool. The majority of kids growing up these days don’t watch tv or read magazines, they use the internet. They’re the next generation. It’s not the end of print, or telly, but things have changed..... You owe me 1.05 for the that lesson.

It’s narrow minded fuckwits like yourself who are keeping this industry from progressing.

signed, a pissed off but forward thinking DM creative........a “creative” in fact!

..pidgeon hole yourself, muppet.

There are a lot of unhappy people in this industry, aren't there? Deeply insecure, unhappy people.

Let's all sit back and reflect on all of the wonderful things advertising has done for us.

5.32, they did a lot of digital when at whybins. they won a lot of awards at adma way back then.

Who cares if they didn't exactly start in DM.

I'm guessing they aren't pissed off that they've won a few gongs at adma and stole the show with a canne DM grand prix along their journey through adland.

Who cares if they didn't exactly come from DM.

9:21, perhaps you should spend less time being an arse-sucking sycophant and more time on your written work (ie spelling and grammar).

Bloody art directors (sigh).

arse sucking, my arse, 3.00.

I'm just pointing out creatives who do good work, who know DM and as far as I know, don't right it off.

.....fuck! you and you're head in the ground mates are tools.

faaaark, if ya don't pull ya freak'n heads in, the future will run them over.

The MTV thing that 1:05 refers to was rank blah. Couldn't sit through the whole thing. If your stuff for MTV doesn't captivate, GIVE UP!

It's true. The future belongs to creatives who can do everything from a banner to a DM pack to a TVC.

But the future won't be coming to the majority of Australian agencies any time soon, so you mainstream guys can stop sweating and you DM people can stop getting overexcited.

hear, hear 4.59.

Exactly. The majority of agencies here in oz are backwards and from a creative point of view, that's why it's taking so long for good things to happen here in adland.

But as Oz performed extremely well at Cannes this year it shows that with the forward thinking agencies we do have in our midst, then maybe we are on the right path.

Here's to the future where fellow creatives don't have to denigrate each other's skills, be they mainstream, DM, digital or whatever the fuck the next name they call us will be.

I rest my case.

Well done Christie. Good on yer. Works has great clients. Seems like other smaller start ups who just freelance on crap are getting involved here. Jealousy is such a disease.

I have won more awards than all of yer. And I think kev is right. Good on him. His agency is going places. How many two year old places have MTV, BBC and JIm Beam.

So good on yer christie, good choice, good luck. Also John Heggarty just awarded the MTV ad. Only australian ad he did award.

That man knows nothing :) Just runs the best agency in the world and has won everything 10 times over.

Matty and Dave are brilliant. Superb. They didnt even make scam ads to get where they are.
