Dawson Pickering is an agency that came into the world surprisingly quickly – not least from the point of view of founders Neil Dawson and Clive Pickering – but it appears to be motoring nicely.
The agency has already completed one campaign for Collect+ parcels, hired a managing director in former DDB VW suit Dudley Desborough and now Peruvian creative Diego Arellano (left) has signed up. Arellano previously worked as a copywriter at Leo Burnett and JWT in Lima.
Arellano says: “Being part of Dawson Pickering is a privilege for any creative in the world. Their experience and multi-awarded work is an inspiration and a huge opportunity for me to learn and grow. I’m very happy to be selected by two of the best creative directors in the industry.”
Dawson and Pickering left BETC London at Christmas following a bust-up between co-founders Dawson and Matthew Charlton. BETC boss Remy Babinet decided to dispense with both of them and start again, despite the agency producing decent work for four new London-only BETC clients – Bacardi, Cow & Gate, Diet Coke and Ibis hotels – in its first two years.
At the time this decision looked a bit Gallic. We wait to see what new clients Dawson Pickering has to announce.
