JOHN ALLISON AND CHRIS BOVILL JOIN PABLO LONDON.
25 November 2021

Creative tag team John Allison and Chris Bovill have joined Pablo London on a permanent basis.

The move follows a successful freelance spell that produced work for Deliveroo and DFS. Now the creatives behind the second of Channel 4's 'Superhumans' films are ready for whatever Pablo throws at them.


Fortunately, Allison is used to what the name entails: "I had a hamster called Pablo once. It escaped and chewed through the wiring. Took out the electricity for the entire building. It may have been small and hairy but it took on the world. Total madman."


It's been too enjoyable to stop, so we decided not to.

 ”

But what about the agency itself? "Pablo are incredibly nurturing and attuned to how different people work so as to get the very best out of them," Allison says. "It doesn't feel like work at Pablo, which is how the best work works."


His creative partner Chris Bovill agrees: "Pablo are on fire at the minute. It's always exciting to work with a team in full, confident, hop-skipping stride. It's been too enjoyable making Deliveroo and DFS to stop, so we decided not to!"

Needless to say, this suits executive creative director Dan Watts down to the ground: "Brilliant odd-shaped people, making brilliant odd-shaped ideas that demonstrate a brand's point of view. That's what we're all about at Pablo, and Chris and John are brilliantly odd too - it was the most natural thing to join forces."
