CAMERON BLACKLEY TO LEAVE PUBLICIS LONDON TO JOIN DROGA 5 IN NEW YORK
Aussie expat, Cameron Blackley (son of David), who is currently a senior art director at Publicis London, is set to join Droga 5 in New York as a senior Art Director in October. His writer partner, fellow Aussie expat Andrew Petch, is staying with Publicis.
Blackley told CB from London: "My wife Zorrica and I were thinking about coming home (to Oz) when the Droga 5 call came. Why? It's a no brainer. I've done a couple of projects with Droga and Duncan over the last couple of years including designing their corporate I.D. and I guess they thought I'd fit in and vice-versa. The wife and I flew over to see the new premises on Broadway, had a chat and that was it. It's an incredible opportunity to be in on the beginnings of something as exciting as Droga 5 and I'm looking forward to working on a broad range of traditional and non traditional advertising projects. And to eat a lot of pretzels."
