Harrison Patten Troughton Brand Response has signed up a new
creative duo as the start-up agency continues to increase its staff on
the back of a string of wins since its March launch.
The art director, Tony Henry, who joins from HHCL & Partners, and John
Fitzgerald, a freelance copywriter, have not worked together before and
have been brought together by Steve Harrison, HPT’s creative
Harrison commented: ’These two have what we are looking for -
ideas-driven, response-oriented skills. It wasn’t that we were
I’m always looking for the right people.’
The two will work across the main accounts of the six-month-old Rainey
Kelly Campbell Roalfe-backed start-up, which picked up the Virgin
Atlantic account from Rapier (Campaign, 11 September). In addition, the
agency has won business from Royal & SunAlliance, Granada’s GSkyB,
Telstra and a project for the Times.
Henry has spent the last four years at HHCL where he worked across the
agency’s key integrated accounts, including Mazda, Guinness Ireland, the
AA and Martini.
Fitzgerald has most recently been freelancing at Craik Jones, Bean
Andrews Norways Cramphorn and TBWA GGT Simons Palmer.
