Robson Brown appoints Aylesbury creative director

Robson Brown appoints Aylesbury creative directorRobson Brown appoints Aylesbury creative director

Former Frame creative director David Aylesbury has become Robson Brown's first major recruit since it was spared from closure by The Mission Marketing Group.

Aylesbury, who was previously based in Scotland but is originally from the North East, has been appointed creative director to oversee the Newcastle agency's advertising work.

In his 22 years in the ad industry Aylesbury has worked for agencies including Hall Advertising, Faulds and The Union, creating work for clients such as Strongbow, Typhoo Tea and Baxters Soup.

He said: "It’s an exciting time to join Robson Brown and have the opportunity to utilise the resources within the Mission Marketing Group – thinkBDW, Fuse Digital, BrayLeino, thinkApril-Six, thinkRLA, Story and Big Communications - and we are starting to work on some really exciting national brands and campaigns.

"We will also be expanding the creative team and will be recruiting in the future and my aim is to secure the best creative talent on offer."

The Mission Marketing Group bought Robson Brown's assets in December after the long-standing ad agency had fallen into administration and closed its doors.

The deal allowed former staff, including managing director Andrew Marwick, to resume trading under the Robson Brown name and to try to rebuild the agency to its former glories.

First rule of Drum photos: never smile. Second rule of Drum photos: never smile. Robson Brown is a lucky agency to have Bish. He's a star and we all still miss him.

Great news Bish. Think for once there's some mutual respect going here for all to see. Testament to what it's like to work in Scotland. Still, at least you'll be able to watch England in the pub now without being surrounded by jocks in Brazil, Germany or Argentina shirts. That comment at least should create a bit of banter. Best of luck

I reckon it'd be right easy to Photoshop that picture of Bish and make him look dead like Hitler. PS nice one Bish.
