Simons Palmer Denton Clemmow and Johnson has hired an award-winning

creative duo from Collett Dickenson Pearce.

Sean Thompson, an art director, and Ros Sinclair, a writer, are joining

Simons Palmer as a senior team to work on the agency’s new clients such

as LDV and Virgin Radio. They will also work on existing business such

as Sony and Nike.

Thompson and Sinclair’s most recent work at CDP includes the Whyte and

Mackay television campaign featuring the Scottish comedian, Phil Kay,

and some forthcoming press ads for Benson and Hedges Lights.

Sinclair commented: ‘This is a great opportunity - we have always wanted

to work at Simons Palmer. Although working for Guy Moore and Tony

Malcolm has been fun, we couldn’t resist the chance to work on Nike.’

The team has only been at CDP for ten months. They spent the previous

five years at S. P. Lintas, where they teamed up in 1990. Last year they

won a host of awards - a D&AD silver, a silver at the Campaign Press

Awards, a gold, silver and bronze at Cannes plus a gold at Creative

Circle - for their Crisis press campaign.

Simons Palmer has also recruited a new account manager, Danny Joseph,

who will work primarily on the agency’s IDV brands, Gonzales Byass and

Drambuie. Joseph was previously at Bates Dorland, where he worked on the

Safeway account.
