Aussie expat creative journeyman Jonathan Drapes has popped up as Creative Director of CDP London, the agency famous for Hamlet Cigars, Heineken 'Refreshes' and putting a semi-naked Kylie Minogue on a mechanical bull for Agent Provocateur.
Drapes, who only recently moved back to the UK to have his first novel published, started his career at The Campaign Palace Sydney, before moving to JWT Sydney and then disappearing to work and surf in Central America. He has since bounced back and forth between the UK and Australia, most recently working for the highly awarded 4Creative in London.
CDP has taken something of a battering in recent years, but it is hoped that a new management team can point the agency back towards its glory days.

Damned with faint priase indeed. 'Journeyman' ususally refers to a tired, averagely-talented person who ekes a living from their chosen profession but never shines.

Does that really sum up a person who's been given the top creative perch in a major agency in a major advertising city?

Sounds like sour grapes to me.
