Julian Vizard, joint creative director of St Luke’s, is leaving the
agency at the end of the month to take up a creative position at the
Australian agency, Mojo.
St Luke’s has poached HHCL & Partners’ head of art, Mark Howard, to
partner its co-creative chief, Al Young. However, Howard, who joins the
agency next month, will not take the title of creative director.
Vizard joined the agency six years ago as an art director and became
joint creative director in 1996.
’I’ve had an amazing and intense time at St Luke’s but it’s time to try
’I’ve always had an eye on Australia. It’s one of the most exciting
places to be at the moment,’ he said.
During his time at the agency, Vizard produced some of St Luke’s most
notable and contentious campaigns such as Ikea’s ’downsizer’ and ’stop
being so English’.
Howard has worked at HHCL for four years, producing work for Guinness,
Iceland and Pot Noodle.
’He’s a real catch. I admire so much of his work, particularly the
recent Iceland campaign. I look forward to working with him - there was
brilliant instant chemistry,’ Young said.
