2006 One Show Judges

David Nobay

Saatchi & Saatchi


Executive Creative Director David is more widely known as "Nobby". This, unfortunately, is due solely to his surname. Thanks to simple misunderstandings with HR, cultural nuances and "windows of opportunity", Nobby has spent the last 18 years bouncing around the globe, including stints in London, Hong Kong, Melbourne, San Francisco, New York and, most recently, Sydney Australia. In that time, he's founded one tragically unsuccessful agency, and one reasonably profitable one. His name has also been loosely associated with all the major award shows, including Cannes, One Show, D&AD and Clio. In 2004, he represented Australia on the Cannes Film Jury, and Clio for Film in 2005. In 2006, he became the first Australian judge to be requested on both the One Show and D&AD Jury. In the 2005 Gunn Report, Saatchi & Saatchi Sydney was ranked the 25th most awarded office in the world; the highest ranking an Australian agency has ever achieved. Since assuming his position as ECD of Saatchi & Saatchi in Sydney in 2003, the agency has been named Australian Agency of the Year three years in a row. A record in Australian Advertising history. He also sits on the Saatchi & Saatchi World-Wide Creative Board. Outside advertising, Nobby's interests include yo-yo dieting and facial hair.
