Jamshop's award winning creative history and reputation that saw it responsible for the Mitsubishi account for the years before it left SA for NSW in 2016, its CEO/creative director Jim Robinson, account director Gail Reudiger and a handful of others join the existing talent pool at blackbocks' Norwood premises.
Complete with management, strategic, creative, channel and production capabilities that are second to none, led by managing director - Cameron Hockey, blackbocks is seen as a refreshing alternative, certainly validated by recent wins with appointments by both state based and national Brands over the last 12 months.

Announcing the appointment of Johnny Velis as creative director and Becq Hinton for the role of head of art, "the creative output from blackbocks / Jamshop has certainly climbed a few extra rungs".

Along with relative new arrivals in channel strategist, Lucy McFarlane and digital channel manager, Morgan Riddle, this demonstrates our commitment to invest in well-recognised specialists to deliver expertise and value to our clients.

Is there a reason an award winning agency would be acquired by an unknown “agency” with 4 works in their portfolio? I smell something fishy.
