Two CDs Leave McCann Erickson for Bigdog

By Erik Oster 

Bigdog, the agency created from the merger of Balloon Dog and Big Communications, announced the hiring of creative directors Barrie Robinson and Tim Jarvis, both of whom join the agency from McCann Erickson, The Drum reports.

Jarvis and Robinson spent four years as a creative team at McCann Erickson, with Robinsons serving as an art director and Jarvis as a senior copywriter. While with McCann Erickson they worked with clients including Honda, Kellogg’s, BBC and World Vision. Before that they worked together as an art director/copywriter team at Gratterpalm for two years, working with clients such as Greggs, Asda, Arla and LA Fitness. Prior to that, Jarvis served as a copywriter with Poulters for three years. Robinson arrived at Gratterpalm from Cheethambell JWT, where he spent a year as an art director following over two years in the same position at Family Advertising.

“It’s taken me about 10 years to get the guys here, but to finally have them working in the agency at such an exciting time has been worth the wait,” Dylan Bogg, chief creative officer at Bigdog, told The Drum.
