This week's guest judge is Justine Armour, creative director at Wieden Kennedy, Portland.She joined the agency in 2011 from her hometown of Sydney, Australia. She fondly remembers sunshine, and sometimes weeps when exposed to direct sunlight. In her time at W+K she has led the Chrysler/Dodge, Secret, and Herbal Essences accounts. Prior to becoming a Creative Director she was a copywriter for 15 years, co-creating such ad things as Old Spice "Momsong", Hahn SuperDry "Pioneering Beering", and a personal project called Smile Makers, which is a range of actually-not-very-kinky-at-all vibrators -- all of which won accolades at AWARD, Clio, Cannes, D&AD, OneShow and some of the others. In her almost two decades in the industry she has worked across tons of global and regional brands, such as PepsiCo, Frito-Lay, Virgin Active, Boag's beer, Qantas, Emirates, Toyota, PayPal, Nestle, and Visa, to name a few. For two years she was also Head Lecturer of Award School. Probably her career highlight so far was collecting one of those giant novelty checks for a Radio ad, and then carrying it around New York. She is an Australian citizen, Portland resident, dog person, and future radical feminist.Twitter @jusarmourInstagram @jus________
