Mumbrellacast: Herald Sun’s cartoon controversy, Ikon vs the client, is Alan Jones a liability?

In this week’s Mumbrellacast, the editorial team unpacks the Herald Sun’s controversial Serena Williams cartoon, Alan Jones’ defamation loss and Ikon’s battle with the courts.

In creative corner, we dissect MLA’s new product-focused Spring Lamb campaign, Budget Direct’s absent Captain Risky, 13cab’s attempt to “modernise” its brand and Bankwest’s plea to win over Australians.

The team also sits down with award-winning full-service agency CHE Proximity’s CEO Chris Howatson (34:00) and chief creative officer Ant White, to discuss what media agencies do behind closed doors and the need for the industry to clean up its act.

Howatson and White also share their thoughts on the state of Australia’s creative industry, how the agency’s ‘Billion Point Giveaway’ campaign for Velocity Frequent Flyer won Mumbrella’s Media Campaign of the Year and what makes the agency tick.

The agency leaders also reveal CHE Proximity’s newest client.
