Bamber Forsyth founders Keith Bamber and Nigel Forsyth have joined 35, the 14-strong design consultancy established by former Bamber Forsyth creative and marketing directors Lee Hoddy and Thom Newton (all pictured below).
The move follows the departure of Bamber and Forsyth from the Fitch stable at the end of May 2003, following a legal dispute, which has just been settled privately. A legal hearing had been scheduled for 23 February.
‘We have come to a totally amicable agreement with the powers that be. All action has been stopped on both sides,’ says Bamber.
A Fitch spokeswoman declined to comment.
