Brian Connolly, one of the creatives behind Foster’s parody of a steamy

Haagen-Dazs ad, has joined Delaney Fletcher Bozell as a senior art

director.



The 33-year-old Connolly, who won a gold at the British Television

Awards for the Foster’s commercial, will partner Mark Tweddell at his

new agency.



Connolly began his career at the then SSC&B Lintas in 1986, after

gaining a diploma from Manchester Polytechnic. He had stints at Gold

Greenlees Trott and Leagas Shafron Davis Ayer before joining Young and

Rubicam, where he stayed for four years and produced much of his award-

winning work.



At Y&R, Connolly teamed up with the copywriter, Jonathan Budds, to

create the Foster’s spoof, which won a silver nomination at D&AD, as

well as the ‘Eiffel Tower’ poster for Eurostar, which won a silver at

the Campaign Poster Awards last year.



From there, he moved to BST-BDDP where he art directed the current

campaign for Classic FM, which uses a series of trompe-l’oeil images

shot by the star photographer, Nadav Kander.



Connolly left BST-BDDP in April.



Greg Delaney, joint creative director of Delaney Fletcher, said he was

attracted by Connolly’s enthusiasm. ‘He’s got quite a lot of experience

but hasn’t lost any enthusiasm for doing good ads,’ he explained.



Connolly said he was drawn to Delaney Fletcher because of the ‘attitude’

he sensed at the agency, together with the chance of working with

Tweddell. ‘I get on with Mark very well,’ he said.
