Ammirati Puris Lintas has recruited the award-winning art director,

Fraser Adamson, to team up with its senior copywriter, Laurence Blume.



Adamson, 38, was previously the associate creative director at Hal Riney

and Partners in San Francisco. Blume, who has worked at Lintas for the

past 18 months, has been without a partner since he split up with his

art director, Paul Martin, last month.



Andrew Cracknell, APL’s executive creative director and chairman said:

‘Fraser brings enormous experience and talent to our creative

department. He’s got one of the best TV reels I’ve seen from an

individual. He and Laurence will make an outstanding team.’



Cracknell added: ‘Fraser has a genuinely different way of looking at

things and is exactly what this agency needs. He combines a high degree

of creativity with a high degree of commonsense.’



Adamson commented: ‘I hope I can excite Andrew as much as he’s excited

me. I’ve always respected what he’s done.’



Adamson moved to New York in 1992 from BMP DDB Needham, to work at BBDO

New York as vice-president, associate creative director. He moved to Hal

Riney and Partners in 1994 to work on accounts including Buena Vista and

Gallo Breweries. He returned to the UK at the end of 1995.



Adamson started in the advertising business in 1986 at Colman RSCG. He

moved to Gold Greenlees Trott in 1986, and then spent four years at

Collett Dickenson Pearce where he won awards for Hamlet cigars and

McEwans lager. In 1990 he moved to BMP as a senior art director and

collected a host of awards for his work on Barclaycard, including a

Cannes gold and silver, four D&AD nominations and two One Show golds.
