Saatchi duo resign to take up posts at AMV

The senior creative team of Victoria Fallon and Steve Hudson are bowing out of Saatchi & Saatchi after only seven months to bolster the Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO creative department.

The senior creative team of Victoria Fallon and Steve Hudson are

bowing out of Saatchi & Saatchi after only seven months to bolster the

Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO creative department.



Fallon, a copywriter, and Hudson, her art director, will join AMV in

February to work on Cellnet and the recently won pounds 12 million

Draught Guinness account (Campaign, 16 January).



The pair switched to Charlotte Street last June from Bartle Bogle

Hegarty.



Hudson said: ’Although Saatchis is a good agency, it’s not for us. AMV’s

offer surprised us, but we had to go for it.’



At AMV, Hudson and Fallon will fill the gap left by Steve Spence and

Trevor Kennedy, who quit late last year to become creative directors at

the newly opened London office of Germany’s Scholz & Friends.



They arrive at AMV after working together for an eight-year period

spanning spells at the then Horner Collis & Kirvan and BMP DDB. They

joined BBH in June 1994.



Peter Souter, the AMV creative director, said: ’They had been trying to

make their mark at Saatchis but, in the end, our offer was too

tempting.’



Hudson and Fallon, who have been silver award winners at Cannes, made

their names with the ’wedding’ commercial for Volkswagen.



More recently, they produced the One-2-One commercials with Vic Reeves

and Kate Moss, the Audi ad featuring an obnoxious yuppie and Levi’s

’mermaids’.
