AMV BBDO has hired Adrian Rossi and Alex Grieve, Creative Directors from Glue to join their line up of Creative Partners. Mark Fairbanks and Tim Riley at AMV BBDO are also being promoted to Creative Partners to boost the agency’s senior creative line up which already includes Steve Jones, Martin Loraine and Thiago de Moraes. Adrian Rossi & Alex Grieve have been Creative Directors at Glue for a year.  Previous to that they were Creative Directors at BBH where they launched the multi-award winning Barnardo’s campaign - “Heroin Baby”.  Amongst other things they also produced “Billions” for Lynx, “Fish” for Audi and the recent “Lost Lives” campaign for St. John Ambulance. Awards they have won include 2 Cannes Gold Lions, 3 D&AD Pencils, 1 Campaign/Big Gold and over 10 Campaign/Big Silvers. They have Creative Directed across a large breadth of clients including British Airways, Levi’s, Barnardo’s, St. John Ambulance, ITV, Gordon’s Gin and Eristoff Vodka. Paul Brazier, Executive Director at AMV BBDO, comments: “I am really excited about Alex and Adrian joining us and along with Mark, Tim and the other Creative Partners; I really feel that AMV is moving forward with the best creative talent available. We expect great things from them all.” Adrian and Alex add, “We have one very simple rule.  The only way to ensure you get better is to work with the best people. That’s why we joined BBH.  It’s why we went to Glue.  So when Paul offered us a job it really wasn’t a hard decision.  Nobody does big, famous ads like AMV.  Nobody gets digital as well as AMV.  From from top to bottom, AMV are jam-packed with the best of the best.” During his time at AMV, Tim Riley has won awards for his work on The Economist, Mercedes-Benz, DfT, BBC2 and Birds Eye. He served on the D&AD Executive Committee for three years and recently edited the revised edition of the D&AD Copy Book.  Mark Fairbanks has worked at AMV for 8 years and in that time has won numerous awards including: Campaign Poster Gold, 5 Campaign Poster Silvers, 4 Cannes Lions,  One Show Silver, 12 Creative Circle Silvers as well as 2 Silver Nominations and 25 times in the book at D&AD. He has also served on various judging panels such as D&AD and The Creative Circle.
