Head of Art
Graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Iain began his career as a graphic designer working on sign systems at the Countryside Commission for Scotland before broadening his horizons at Terston Design Studios in Edinburgh. He then moved on to the world of advertising, joining Scotland’s then leading advertising agency, McCallum Advertising as an art director. In 1982, he moved back to his birthplace for stints at JWT and Ogilvy & Mather, New Zealand before returning to Scotland to become Creative Director of Ogilvy & Mather’s Scottish offices. In 1990, he co-founded the creative consultancy Hawk & York and worked as consultant creative director for Coltas and The Morgan Partnership as well as for his own direct clients. Along the way, he was a founding partner of Timberbush Advertising. Iain founded 60 Watt with Peter Mill, and has worked with him for the last 12 years having more than a little fun along the way.
