Two New Creatives Join Up with Johannes Leonardo

Mother alum Dave Tomkins (pictured right) and Scotland native Iain Nevill have joined NYC -based Johannes Leonardo as art director and copywriter, effective immediately. They will be reporting directly to co-founders Jan Jacobs and Leo Premutico.

Both come from interesting backgrounds across the Atlantic. Nevill launched Borne Magazine (a freebee mag you get at Urban and American Apparel). After starting the mag, he went on to work at S.C.P.F in Barcelona, where he worked on a bevy of brands including BMW, IKEA, & Vodafone, to name a few.

Tomkins on the other hand, seems to have a highly-awarded advertising background, coming from Clemenger BBDO Sydney, Happy Soldiers and Mother London, so at least he can hold up the team while they both get acclimated.

Congratulations to these two for getting American visas. I look forward to seeing more fresh work a la Daffy’s, from JL. No pressure, guys.
