Norways Cramphorn and its most senior art director, has left the

agency.



Robert Bean, the agency’s chairman, confirmed that Norways would no

longer be working at the agency and said that an announcement would be

made in the next two weeks regarding a ’radical new approach to work in

the agency’s creative department’. The reasons for his departure are

unclear.



BANC was founded in May 1996 as a brand development and communications

company. It reunited the marketing and managerial experience of Bean,

who joined from British Telecom, and Mark Cramphorn.



The fourth partner, Jim Andrews, was a founder of the design

consultancy, Basten Greenhill Andrews.



At the time of its launch, BANC said it would specialise in overhauling

clients’ businesses, from advertising and logos to communications and

interior design.



Norways began his career at Leagas Delaney, where he spent four years

working with the copywriter, Mick Sands.



He then moved to Abbott Mead Vickers, where he spent another four

years.



In 1993, Norways moved to Young & Rubicam, where he partnered Mike Court

and created the famous ’Carl in New York’ ad for Pirelli.



Norways was unavailable for comment as Campaign went to press.
