BMP DDB has poached one of Ogilvy and Mather’s top creative teams, Ted Heath and Paul Angus, to work on a variety of clients.

BMP DDB has poached one of Ogilvy and Mather’s top creative teams,

Ted Heath and Paul Angus, to work on a variety of clients.



Angus, an art director, and Heath, a copywriter, were at Ogilvy and

Mather for five years and won a series of awards for their ’walker’ spot

for Golden Wonder, as well as for their Nik-Naks and Guinness work.



Heath said: ’We always felt valued at O&M and enjoyed working there, but

after five years, it was the right time to move on and BMP is a great

agency.’



The pair won a Cannes Lion for their Guinness ’St Patrick’s Day’ bus

shelter poster. The innovative posters made use of SuperLite technology

to fill a glass with Guinness.



The original line, ’unhappy St Patrick’s Day’, appeared with the image

of an empty Guinness glass, but this changed later in the day to a full

glass, with the ’un’ crossed out from the word ’unhappy’.



Other ads created by Heath and Angus while at O&M include work for Angel

Delight, Pony trainers, Electrolux and Eagle Star.



The team met at Buckinghamshire College, and did a series of work

placements in their post-graduation year before being offered a

permanent job at O&M.



Heath is particularly pleased to be working at BMP in the election year,

and said: ’We want to be a part of the Labour campaign.’
