Scottish advertising’s Annus Horribilis

Annus Horribilis cover small

First it was Toyota leaving GRP.  Then HBOS vacates Newhaven.  Now Subway departs Frame.

Add to the that the demise of Pointsize Wolffe and Graphic Partners last week from the design sector and we are witnessing something close to carnage.

Sure, we’re keeping calm and carrying on and, true, some of this may reflect the changing of the guard, particularly in the design sector, but it doesn’t make for pretty reading and my heart goes out to all of those guys who’ve seen important business, and in fact their entire business in some cases, vacate the premises.

Stick in there folks.
