Prideaux quits post as creative at Circus for new job at Rapier

David Prideaux, the creative partner of Circus, is quitting to join

Rapier as deputy creative director.

At Rapier, Prideaux will work alongside the other deputy creative

director, Roger Pearce, who is also the head of art. Both will report to

the creative director, John Townshend.

Prideaux is the latest in a series of senior hirings at Rapier. Earlier

this month John Hiney, formerly a director of marketing strategy at

Modem, was appointed as client services director and Martin Langley, the

former WWAV Rapp Collins deputy creative services director, joined

Rapier as the creative services director. Four new creatives have been

hired by Rapier over the past three months, building the department to

seven creative teams.

At Circus, Prideaux worked with the creative director, Tim Ashton, on

campaigns for BBC Sport, The Environment Agency and The Museum of


Townshend said it has taken about eight months to lure Prideaux to


"His experience at Circus has given him skills in a far broader range of

brand media than a traditional ad agency."
