I was absolutely blessed to start my career at Hall Advertising.
It was a true hotbed of creativity.
Many of the people written about in this post I consider to be not just my colleagues, but my friends; Mill, Downie, Farrell, Gumm, Taylor, Robertson, Jeffery, Atkinson, Cox, Lindsay, Stanier, Sutton, Gibsone, Wyper, Marr, Redding (RIP), Scott, Grassick, McCowan-Hill.
I met my wife of 28 years (and counting) there.
I discovered gratuitous hedonism there.
I realised advertising was more than just the best job in the world there; I learned that it has enough logic, science and passion-potential to rise above mere fun and can make a difference.
It’s a roll call of Scottish creative greatness and I am honoured to have served them.
Thanks Jim Downie (then Creative Director) for putting this history lesson together.
