Travis Sennett Sully Ross has reinforced its creative department by

hiring Andy Lawson, the award-winning art director, to help spur its

growth as part of the Dentsu family.



As head of art, Lawson will work with Gill Sully, who was promoted to

creative director when the agency parted company with her former art

director, Terry Ross (Campaign, 8 March).



Lawson, 39, a Campaign, D&AD and Creative Circle award winner for

clients including LWT, Pepsi, NEC and Albany Life, has been hired to add

muscle to Travis Sennett’s creative department.



The agency, which is best known for its work on English Riviera, Patak

spices, and - most recently - the pounds 3 million launch of the Yakult

health drink, claims a 75 per cent billings increase between 1994 and

1995.



Peter Travis, the agency’s managing director, said: ‘Our ambition is for

very significant growth and Andy will play a big part in helping us

achieve it.’



Lawson’s hiring brings to an end a ten-week search for a head of art.

Sully said: ‘Not only does Andy have a brilliant book, but I feel he

will fit in very well.’



Lawson’s agency career began in the early 80s at GGT and was followed by

four years at Lowe Howard-Spink. He was head of art at BBDO and Burkitt

Weinreich Bryant before a stint at Chiat Day. For the past two years he

has been freelancing.



Meanwhile, Mellors Reay and Partners has raided its sister agency, Grey,

to hire the art director and creative group head, Ken Sara, best known

for his award-winning work on Nike, Diamond White and Skoda. Sara, 34,

will partner the writer, Jon Elsom.
