DIARY: O&M water feature in new multi-functional space claims victim

No, this is not an update on the fashionably distressed style of Campaign’s new-ish Hammersmith offices. In fact, the Diary editor was rapped over the knuckles for not singing the company song the last time, and would now like to put on the record how fond he is of the brown paper-style brown paper sunscreens on the filthy windows.

No, this is not an update on the fashionably distressed style of

Campaign’s new-ish Hammersmith offices. In fact, the Diary editor was

rapped over the knuckles for not singing the company song the last time,

and would now like to put on the record how fond he is of the brown

paper-style brown paper sunscreens on the filthy windows.



At least we knew what was supposed to be going on in our building,

unlike the poor bewildered suburbanites of Ogilvy and Mather. Having

just learned whereabouts in London their building is, they now have to

ponder the meaning of the two-month-long building works that are still

taking place on the tenth floor.



So far, all they have been told is that there is to be a ‘water feature’

in what the designer and former O&M planner, Julian Saunders, had

deigned to call a ‘multi-functional space’.



As you might expect, some of the O&M wags have had their day, but before

the space has even been opened to the public it has landed its first

victim. Saunders, seen in the photo below in the dark suit pointing at

the new ‘pool’, is clearly saying: ‘That is where we’re going to bury

the last remaining U-matics of the ‘gay kiss’ Guinness commercial.’



Unfortunately, one of these copies survived and fell into Campaign’s

grubby hands, which is probably why young Julian has subsequently been

banished to Lansdown Conquest as planning director.
