Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe has hired Pip Bishop and Chris

Hodgkiss, a senior creative team who left TBWA GGT Simons Palmer five

weeks ago.



Hodgkiss and Bishop were group heads at TBWA, and are best known for

their work on Nissan, for which they created the ’Sweeney’ and

’Professionals’ spots and developed the ’ask before you borrow it’

campaign.



Bishop said: ’We always wanted to work at Rainey Kelly and we came here

as freelancers the minute we left TBWA. It’s refreshingly free from

politics and after being a group head it’s nice to sit down and do the

work rather than have meetings.’



They have already produced a potentially controversial press and poster

execution for Virgin Atlantic which reads: ’BA’s Millennium Bug’, with a

star at the end of the headline which refers readers to the small type

at the bottom of the ad: ’Virgin Atlantic.’



The team are also working on other Rainey Kelly clients, including

Thorntons, the Vauxhall Astra and Virgin Trains.



Mark Roalfe, a creative partner at Rainey Kelly, said: ’We’ve noticed

their work for a while and we’re pleased they’ve already got their feet

under the table.’



The team first worked together at Cogent’s London office, where they won

a Campaign silver and two commendations for their work on Milton

Keynes.



From Cogent they moved to Simons Palmer Denton Clemmow & Johnson, where

they worked on clients including Fuji, the British Heart Foundation and

LDV.
