Amadeo on the Wayo

Reported today on the Campaign Brief blog: "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."

He will be flying into Auckland sometime January and his awards will be arriving in a shipping container which should be here by March.

Neil.

Auckland is indefendible. It's a boring, shit heap of a ugly crappy town planning mess. And I'm not from Wellas. Subtropical climate I have decided is really just a euphemism for fucked.
