JEREMY LEE ON ADVERTISING
It's nearly Christmas, so time for the traditional positive missive - but, in this instance, I genuinely think it's warranted.
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...
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...
There's a certain neatness to the fact that Adam & Eve/DDB has teamed up with the producers of The Plane Crash, coming just a few days after Carat was responsible for producing what must be one of the biggest car crashes with its own content efforts.
Have you seen Gogglebox on Channel 4, the TV show where you can watch people watching TV? It's a kind of real-life Royle Family and further proof that pop culture will eat itself. It's also my guilty pleasure.
As has been mentioned before, the season of mellow fruitfulness is also the time when Campaign starts to look back on the year to date - the creative highlights, the people news, the new-business efforts and the other "big" news that went some way to...
Fortunately, questions of morality (payday loan companies aside) are not ones that agencies face with regularity given how tightly regulated the industry is and that it is run largely by ethically responsible people.
One of the benefits of having an oversupplied agency sector is that fashion and other such fripperies aren't necessarily followed slavishly by clients. And so, for every Wieden & Kennedy and Bartle Bogle Hegarty apparently blazing a trail, there's a ...
Over a recent lunch, a brilliant but unorthodox creative director (whose blushes I'll spare) told me that what worries him the most about the industry is the dearth of fellow mavericks, particularly in creative departments. Picking over sticky toffee...
The fundamental question of what really matters has been debated by theologians, spiritualists and fans of self-help books since time began. Their hours mulling over this most challenging of life's conundrums may have been wasted because, in a little...
As advertising milestones go, the Solus Club's decision to finally admit women might appear a relatively minor one.
In a Campaign interview several years ago, Nigel Jones, the now outgoing Publicis group chairman and chief executive, borrowed heavily (without crediting) Bartle Bogle Hegarty's founding principle of zigging versus zagging to explain how to get on in...
While not quite having the same effect as the Second Coming of Christ, the arrival of Justin Cooke and his new agency - with its peculiarly awkward moniker Innovate7 - certainly caused a bit of a stir this past week.
A bit like Dale Winton, Asda's marketing director, Chris McDonough, presided over his own version of Supermarket Sweep that saw agency contestants whittled down from nine to five to three to two to VCCP.
HSBC's highly embarrassing volte-face, which has seen the bank shift its prized UK retail advertising account out of Grey London and back into JWT London after just five months, is a timely reminder to clients who think they can get the moon on a sti...
