    That is absolutely brilliant, brilliant news ... our tennants have just moved out our house and I need someone to keep paying my mortgage for me.

    On behalf of my bank manager, I want to pass my heartfelt thanks to both Mr Goodby and Mr Silverstein for their brilliant decision.

    Oh, and congrats to you too Gareth - Modernista's [though they probably won't admit it] pain is most definitely Goodby's [though they do admit it] gain.

    Congratulations Gareth! This is great news. And I second what Rob says in his last paragraph.

    Fred is a parasite.


    Congratulations Gareth

    Please keep on inspiring your digital cousins in Mumbai...


    Rob, why wouldn't Modernista! admit it is a loss? Besides how could an Ad Agency admit it? Send out a press release? I can see it now: "Kay departs Modernista!, exclamation mark removed until further notice."

    Good luck, G, you've certainly bitten off a big challenge, I am really curious to see what you'll achieve with the Princes of California Street.


    Congrats and good luck :)


    Best of luck on the move and congratulations!


    Grats Gareth,

    Matt and Hamish are wicked smart, you'll enjoy them. It's truly quite a brilliant place, you'll fit in well.
