John Thornton

Senior Creative, SURREAL
John gets paid to write daft things on the internet. Some of the poor fools who’ve hired him include innocent smoothies, Great Pottery Throwdown and, uh…the United Nations…? No one’s sure how that last one happened. John’s latest victims - sorry, employers - are Surreal – a startup cereal company who hand in 10ft tall resignations, design billboards on MS Paint, and swap their office for IKEA show rooms. John’s dad doesn’t understand his job, and neither do many other people, but he’s twice gone more viral than a John Lewis Christmas ad, so he must be doing something right. Right?
