Ros Sinclair and Sean Thompson, one of TBWA’s most senior creative
teams, have quit the agency to join Leagas Delaney, where they will work
at the level of creative directors.
Sinclair, a copywriter, and Thompson, an art director, are ’brand
guardians’ at TBWA, where they have day-to-day responsibility for
creative work for a number of clients, including Goldfish and
The duo joined Simons Palmer Denton Clemmow & Johnson from CDP three
years ago. They created the launch campaign for Goldfish starring Billy
Connolly and won awards for their Nike poster campaign which colourfully
depicted the feeling of the ’runner’s high’.
Sinclair said: ’Leagas Delaney is a great agency. TBWA is a really good
agency but it’s not the agency we joined.’
The pair are the third senior team to leave TBWA in recent weeks. Jason
Fretwell and Greg Milbourne have also quit (story, p8) and Pip Bishop
and Chris Hodgkiss, who created the Nissan Almera ’Sweeney’ campaign,
have gone freelance.
