We’re always happy to see new faces at Tonic. This month three new recruits join our creative, media and client servicing departments. At least two of them are pretty good looking (a prerequisite to working at Tonic) no guesses as to which two I’m talking about :)
Anyway, Renata is a real Italian South African girl who I can only describe as a walking soap opera judging by some of the experiences she’s had in the past few weeks. She also has a fondness for chicken skin, killing bunnies and bleaching various body parts. With 9 years experience, her design skills will help take our creative department to the next level, unless FP7 poaches her that is.
Haytham joins the media department. He’s often seen walking around the office looking for a stiffy drive (don’t ask me what he’s doing with stiffy disks in 2007) otherwise he’s doing media stuff like cutting stuff out of magazines, playing solitaire and listening to George Michael.
Anu Parekh is an aspiring planner who joins us as a Business Exec. She’s so new in Tonic, that we haven’t even bought her a lap top yet (we’re waiting for Gitex). In the meanwhile, she’s doing quite nicely with the chalkboard she got in her Tonic welcome pack. Her hero or should I say heroine, is ice skating legend Tonya Harding :)
