It seems the creatives at Doner Cardwell Hawkins are being
recruited at an increasingly youthful age these days.
The agency’s creative director, Paul Cardwell, was impressed when his
daughter brought some schoolwork home. Ten-year-old Amelia, who studies
at London’s Arts Educational School, seems to have inherited an artistic
talent, judging by her depiction of a rain-soaked cat looking forlornly
into the window of a house.
Cardwell was so proud of the picture that he took it into the agency to
show his colleagues. When Derek Conway, the CEO of the Cats Protection
League, Doner Cardwell’s charity client, visited the agency, Cardwell
thought he’d be interested in Amelia’s feline-themed artwork. In fact,
Conway was so impressed with the picture that he decided to use the
drawing on the charity’s public awareness posters, which will appear in
the next few weeks.
Amelia, it’s time to get yourself an agent.
