David Adamson, Strategist at Fallon London
My name is David Adamson, I studied English Literature and Classics and I’m a Strategist at Fallon London.
What was your first ever job?
Setting up a car washing company when I was eleven years old. I’d pay my younger brother and his friends to wash the cars and take a cut.
How did your career in advertising begin?
Doing photography for student events at my university. It sounds small, but it all snowballed from there. I got involved in designing the ads, then I started getting involved in running the events and then I started running my own using my own ideas. When it came to getting my first ‘grown up advertising’ job a degree helped, but this kind of experience clinched it for me.
