ITIAPTWC Episode 45 – Dan Germain

This week’s guest is the lovely and excellent Mr. Dan Germain, whose name almost looks like ‘Dangerman’.

His involvement in advertising, writing, branding and design has almost entirely been in the service of Innocent, which is now a big, global company with plenty of funny writing on the sides of the bottles.

So he’s basically created all the stuff that you love about Innocent beyond the mixture of some bits of fruit.
