Monday Odds and Ends

By Patrick Coffee 

-We’re not sure whether this Canon spot from JWT London is a travel ad or an attempt to make American “football” look extra civilized by comparison.

-Havas Worldwide Japan named David Morgan its executive creative director. Prior to joining Havas, Morgan spent five years as ECD at Ogilvy Japan.

-In response to a tip indicating that a creative director and several other staffers had been laid off from SapientNitro, a spokesperson told us: “A small number of people have left the agency.  This is part of our normal course of business as we continually align our skills and teams to meet the evolving needs of our clients.”


-Mat Jerrett, who previously served as creative director for the Converse account at Anomaly, has moved to Translation. AdAge tells us he will lead creative for Champs and McDonald’s, and you can already see his name on the credits for the newest Champs campaign.

-London agency HeyHuman, which launched in April, announced the hiring of Shnoosee Bailey as creative director. Bailey, who brings more than 16 years of creative experience to the role, previously served as ECD at Saatchi & Saatchi X.

-The ADC doc on Lee Clow that we mentioned in March is available over at Vimeo on demand. (No, it’s not free.)

-Indie film production company Process launched a new company dedicated to the “creation and production of original branded content and commercials.” It sounds a lot like…an ad agency!
