Lambie-Nairn is restructuring into four teams, to better accommodate its non-television corporate identity work.
The last team head to be appointed is Liz Dunning, who has worked at Lambie-Nairn in the past, but was most recently at Addison in San Francisco. Dunning, who joined this week, will be responsible for the Millennium identity project. In effect, she replaces Clare Anderson, who left in May and has since joined Wagstaffs (DW 12 June).
Dunning will look at projects with the major Millennium Experience sponsors, such as BT, Tesco and Marks & Spencer.
Each of the four teams will have a project director, creative director, account handler, middle-weight and junior designer. The creative director on Dunning’s team is Martin Lambie-Nairn, who fills the same role on a team, headed by Celia Chapman, which focuses on TV idents.
The second off-screen team is project directed by Monica Ali, formerly Interbrand Newell and Sorrell associate director, who joined three weeks ago. Iain Dunn, who was creative director at ad agency J Walter Thompson in Manchester, joins Ali as creative director of the corporate branding team.
Martin Lambie-Nairn says the restructure “is to make us more efficient and spread the work around. The Lambie-Nairn brand is developing into corporate identity proper, and not just TV.”
The fourth team, which will handle TV idents, is project directed by Alison Turner, with Brian Eley as creative director. Both Turner and Eley are already at the 40-strong consultancy.
