Clemmow Hornby Inge has hired Laurie Smith and Matt Pam, two former
Campaign Faces To Watch, as its first creative team.
The start-up, which opens its doors on 2 July, hired Smith and Pam after
they worked at the agency as freelancers.
Smith, a copywriter, and Pam, an art director, hit the headlines for the
controversial "FCUKinkybugger" ad for French Connection, which attracted
a hoard of complaints to the ASA.
They began freelancing at Clemmow Hornby after a placement at
TBWA/London and Bartle Bogle Hegarty. They joined TBWA straight from
Buckinghamshire College, where they studied advertising. After
completing two placements there, and working on French Connection, the
Science Museum and an ITV pitch, they joined Alphabet Advertising, where
they worked for six months.
Since then they've been on placement at BBH.
Simon Clemmow, a founder of the agency, said: "They've got a great book
and they'll work across all our accounts."
