With all that baggage, Miller should've flown Ryanair

Having been hailed for her "understanding" of advertising on her appointment as the Culture Secretary in 2012, Maria Miller's protracted departure from the post last week showed two other less-welcome qualities that critics often associate with the i...


Virgin review shows that no account is sacrosanct

As the seemingly prosaic (but supposedly significant) Smart Meter Central Delivery Body was apparently sending gifts of Guinness, Red Bull, crisps and biscuits to the four agency consortiums that it had selected to pitch for the £85 million ad busine...


British creatives are still setting the gold standard

In just a few short weeks, the advertising industry will make like gypsies heading for the Appleby Horse Fair by decamping en masse to the Côte d'Azur as the Cannes Lions caravan rolls into town.


OgilvyOne under scrutiny after paying price of success

OgilvyOne's loss of the News UK business just days after the British Airways CRM account found a new home lays bare the challenges an agency - and a holding group - faces when one of its most talented and totemic individuals is given a leg up the com...


Thanks to WCRS, Engine is building a head of steam

The incredible size of the industry's heart was evident last week at the charity fundraiser and evening of celebration of the life of Nick Milligan.


Is your creative department riddled with con artists?

There's nothing an agency needs more than a lying, cheating creative director. That seemed to be the implication from a research report published last week that attempted to link dishonesty and creativity, and found that cheats are more likely to com...


Minted Murphy remains an account man at heart

It's almost 11 years to the day since James Murphy became Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R's first managing director.


Why Anthea in salopettes should set off alarm bells

Did you watch Channel 4 s The Jump ? No, me neither. But, from what I gather, the most interesting part about it was the insight into how "me too" commissioning (something that is prevalent at the moment) works. You can almost picture the scenes a...


No Govt policy has made adland's heart sing just yet

Helen Goodman took time out from charging the taxpayer for accountancy help in filling in her tax forms (a revelation just exposed in the papers) to deliver a rather astonishing speech at last week's Lead 2014 conference.


Sometimes clients deserve to be shown two fingers

Last week, on Campaign's front page, the French creative duo Frédéric Raillard and Farid Mokart provided an amusing lesson in how to respond to clients that decide to put their business up for review for no apparent reason. "The new Wrangler guy does...


Mother under pressure as family begins to break up

One could argue that the appointment of Dylan Williams as the global chief strategy and innovation officer at Publicis Worldwide tells you as much about Mother as it does about the Publicis network itself.


Seems Santa dumped a wad of P45s on adland

With the departures of David Jones, Hugh Baillie and then Matthew Charlton and Neil Dawson all in the space of a week, 2014 has got off to quite a spectacular start.


'Tis the season to be jolly, so ignore those Scrooges

It's nearly Christmas, so time for the traditional positive missive - but, in this instance, I genuinely think it's warranted.


How the 'Crystal Methodist' left his mark on adland

If it were just a coincidence that Joint London chose to launch the "new" TSB with the tale of its benevolent philanthropist founder, the Reverend Henry Duncan, in an ad called "the story", it now looks a rather ironic and poignant one in the light o...


Creatives start fightback against the bean counters

Paul Brazier's decision to stand aside and take on a chief creative officer and chairman role at Abbott Mead Vickers BBDO came a little too late to save Thiago de Moraes. The head of creative innovation quit for Droga5 in September, having found that...
