SCOT WATERHOUSE IN LOVE
On the back of a range of major account wins in the last six months, Love Communications, Sydney has hired creative heavyweight Scot ‘Skip’ Waterhouse as its Associate Creative Director, working in tandem with Love's Creative Director, Siimon Reynolds. Jeff Mimery has also been appointed as Love’s Senior Designer.
Waterhouse joins Love after 10 years at Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney, where he played a key role over the years, including contributing to Saatchi winning CB Agency of the Year three years in a row.
He commenced his advertising career in London in 1985, where he appeared in the D&AD Annual and gained recognition as one of advertising’s ‘Best Newcomers’ by the British Creative Circle.
In the early 90’s, Waterhouse was lured to Australian shores to the role of Creative Group Head at DDB Sydney, where he played a key role in winning numerous blue chip accounts like Hyundai.
At Saatchi, he was group creative director of two of the agencies largest accounts, Lexus and Westpac. His work on Lexus saw the brand climb from relative obscurity to the third most popular luxury car in Australia.
Commenting on Waterhouse's appointment, Siimon Reynolds said: 'With all the recent growth at the agency we needed to find a creative heavy weight to support major campaign development within the team, including our senior copywriter, Marrianne Little.”
Says Little: “Scot is both a great writer and art director, so he will add value to our entire creative output. I am excited about the new blood in our creative department. It’s a great balance of youth and experience, which I think always gets the best overall results.”
Love has also appointed Jeff Mimery as Senior Designer. He started his career with IngGroup and then freelanced as Art Director for the Australian Will Registry. Jeff then went on to work with CSM & Morph where he was promoted to Senior Designer. Mimery completed AWARD School and graduated as a top 20 student.
