CONNAN JAMES GOES FREELANCE


After four years at M&C Saatchi, senior copywriter Connan James is going freelance. The winner of the 1993 Axis Advertising School, and a former creative director, he has won Bronze and Silver Lions as well as six Bronzes and a Gold at Clio amongst a dustbin of miscellaneous metal.
James told NZCC: "I've enjoyed my time at M&C Saatchi, but four years is a long stint and it's time for a change. Flitting around the country in helicopters for Tourism New Zealand's worldwide ad was a great deal of fun, as was trotting across the outback on horseback. But now it's time for fresh challenges."
Connan James will be available in the new year on 021 300 915 or at connan.james@gmail.com.
