CAMPAIGN DIARY: OgilvyOne staff make a date to help charity

While its rival, Grey Direct, photographed its staff in the altogether

for a trade ad, OgilvyOne chose to wheel out its gorgeous staff fully

clothed for a calendar to raise money for NABS.

Nicky Davies and Matt North, members of the agency’s charity committee,

came up with the idea to persuade people to pose in a tasteful way for a

desk calendar, which will be launched this week.

Several members of staff are featured in the calender, including members

of the management.

The chairman of OgilvyOne, Nigel Howlett, and the management partners,

Mike Dodds and John Owrid, were photographed with their heads in the

clouds ...

Other poses include a country and western theme and a couple of sleeping


Shooting went well apart from one tricky moment. One of the PVC-clad

models, Janine Obee, who also doubles as an account executive on Royal

Mail, was left begging for help when the zip on her skin-tight outfit

The calendar is available from OgilvyOne priced pounds 7.50.
