Clark and Taylor has taken on two new creative teams, doubling the

size of its creative department.



Richard Coggin, an art director, and Neil Frisby, a copywriter, who met

at Buckinghamshire college in 1990, won a gold lion at Cannes this year

for a poster they created for Shelter, the charity for the homeless.



They join Clark and Taylor after a two-year stint at FCB, where they

worked on clients including S. C. Johnson, Kimberly-Clark and

Nestle.



At the agency, they also created TV work for Teletext, Findus, the Daily

Mail, Kleenex, Andrex, Citibank and Glade.



Rodger Williams, the creative director of Clark and Taylor, said: ’We

are building the department with talented teams and it says a lot about

us that these people want to join the agency.’



The second team is Andrew Keller, an art director, and Josh Haines, a

copywriter, who teamed up at Ogilvy & Mather Direct (now OgilvyOne) last

year. They have worked together on accounts including BT, American

Express, Royal Mail and IBM.



Williams added: ’I worked with Richard and Neil at Dorlands, and it is

not often that a team this talented becomes available. Andrew and Josh

are a brilliant duo.’



Earlier this year, Keller and Haines won a gold for press and a gold for

radio for their direct response work.



Clark and Taylor recently won the Granada Little Chef account and has

been given more work by Sainsbury’s, as well as competing in an

increasing number of pitches.



’Hopefully, we will produce more good work. We have a wide skills base

here and an integrated approach - it’s all about ideas,’ Williams said.
