Copeland hires contest winner

9 Jan

When we held our Zombie Intern Contest last February, we were looking to identify students on the Island who might become the advertising stars of tomorrow.

We were pretty sure we found what we were looking for when eventual winner Danny Prew first lurched up our stairs.


We’re thrilled to share the news that we’ve just hired him full-time.

Today is his first day on the job, although he has been a regular face in the office over the past few months doing some outstanding contract work for us.

This recent Pacific Design Academy grad is the complete package: Huge positive energy, beautiful design sense and an amazing team player. He will be mentored within the agency by another former PDA graduate, Michael Tension, also well over 6 feet tall.

Our readers will notice more than a passing resemblance to Canadian comedian Jim Carrey.

We can assure you that Danny is a lot funnier.

    So excited for you Danny!
    Do you need a personal assistant? (Drycleaning delivery is my specialty)

    Well he fit our height criterium. That’s why we really hired him.

    Not to mention the need to be an equal opportunity employer.

    Woohoo! Thanks everyone! I’m exactly where I wanted to be since that first day of my internship. Couldn’t be happier.

    Jimbo’s career is winding down and Danny’s is winding up. So I suspect it won’t be long before people are telling JC he looks like DP.
