One of Simons Palmer Clemmow Johnson’s top creative teams, Phil Cockrell

and Graham Storey, are set to join Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe, where

they have been offered a senior position to back up the agency’s

Creative partners, Robert Campbell and Mark Roalfe.



Cockrell and Storey, who won three silvers at the Campaign poster awards

this year for their work on Nike and the British Heart Foundation, will

be the most senior team at Rainey Kelly after Campbell and Roalfe.



Last year they created the ‘Society Against PlayStation’, the pitch-

winning idea that secured the prestigious Sony account for Simons

Palmer. Their work also includes the Nike ‘punished’ poster which ran to

celebrate the comeback of Eric Cantona after his ban from football.



Cockrell said: ‘Rainey Kelly is the best job in town and one of the few

names we would leave Simons Palmer for. Everything there is about good

ideas rather than technique.’



Campbell added: ‘Graham and Phil have got the perfect mix of youth and

maturity.’



Simons Palmer has been battling to keep Cockrell and Storey, who feel

that their career progress at the agency was blocked by the appointment

of Tony Malcolm and Guy Moore as joint creative directors with Andy

McKay and Paul Hodgkinson earlier this year.
