Taylor Moves Back to CP+B

ATLANTA Mark Taylor returned to Crispin Porter + Bogusky this week, just five months after leaving the Miami agency for a co-creative director’s position at Fallon in Minneapolis.

Taylor, 32, rejoins the shop as associate creative director and already is working on the Burger King and Sprite accounts. He said he also expects to contribute to the Volkswagen campaign.

Taylor was an art director at CP+B when he was recruited last September by Fallon’s creative director at the time, Paul Silburn. Taylor’s job ended when Silburn was dismissed in January.

“It feels like I am at home,” said Taylor about his Miami return. “I was always very happy at Crispin.”

But, he does not regret leaving for Fallon. “It was something I needed to try,” he said. “It was a fun challenge and I wish them all the best.”

Taylor was part of the team that created the Subservient Chicken, the quirky Web site CP+B developed for Burger King. He also worked on the Ikea account, including the “Lamp” spot that won a film Grand Prix at Cannes in 2003, and helped develop the Mini Cooper launch campaign. He also contributed to the Whopperettes ad that aired during this year’s Super Bowl before joining Fallon.

He began his career at Foote Cone & Belding in New York before moving to San Francisco in 1999 to work at the former Odiorne Wilde Narroway + Partners. Taylor joined CP+B the first time in February 2001.
