Described by Sir Richard Branson as 'our other genius' and 'the man who made the difference', John Varnom established practically single-handed a brand image for the Virgin empire that still persists after Virgin's 43rd year in business.

From ground-breaking press, radio and TV commercials & scripts, press releases that even the BBC read out in their entirety, through complex and delicate legal documents, speeches for Sir Richard before the British Institute of Directors to timeless logos and brands for entire record labels - the Front Line logo & name for example - John Varnom's style, wit & prose influenced a generation of UK advertisers and journalists.

And then a love of food and cooking lead to the restaurant business, where his London restaurant Varnom's was voted one of the city's top 20. John took his expertise to the USA, Palm Beach and the Hamptons, London again, Singapore then France and Italy.

Wouldn't you like that...
