He has also worked in creative roles for Fluoro, Amnesia, Moon Communications, Ogilvy Interactive London and NoHo Digital.

MONO will operate an agile model building a core team of leading creative, technical and project management talent and a global network of specialists. It is currently working with senior technical developers based in Sydney, Melbourne and Stockholm.

John Ford, The One Centre Group executive chairman and MONO Director, says: “The One Centre Group is a collective of specialist companies which aims to provide marketers with an agile alternative to the big conglomerates. The launch of MONO provides the Group with leading creative technology thinking and capabilities to provide brands with compelling and engaging ideas. MONO brings the firepower of The One Centre’s strategic thinking and teams it with cutting-edge creative and technology thinking to create Technology and Artistry.”

Chris Gillespie, MONO founder and creative director, says: “MONO is focused on developing and producing innovative technology-based ideas for brands.
