What agency is Mike O'Sullivan Creative Director of?

Harricks looks nervous. Perhaps because he thought Backy might eat him?

Great to see the ad industry fostering equal opportunity, where are all the creative women or is this another one of those Campaign Brief boys clubs.

Best Sydney CD's. Yes I'd include Rebecca Carasco in that, but who else would you have liked to have seen?

Sydney Creative said:

ah ... the night when all creatives across Sydney went home early for once.

Lynchy, can you make this a weekly thing?

interesting question 6.42, 10 years ago? I would say only Welsh, Horner and Branigan were the only CD's then,,,,,any others?

What about a night just for creatives and no cd's?
There would be a plethora of awesome t-shirt designs!

I've finally worked out what it takes to be a creative director.
It has nothing to do with talent and everything to do with beards. (With the exception of the beautiful Bec of course).

Here's a link for those wanting to be cd:

Thank me later.
