David Golding and James Murphy have resigned from creative agency adam&eveDDB to launch a new company.
They are two of four co-founders of adam&eve - it was launched in 2008 with creative Ben Priest and communications planner Jon Forsyth. The agency was sold in 2013 to Omnicom for a final payout of £100 million.
According to Campaign Magazine
, the pair's new company "would have creativity at its core, working with brands across the customer journey but centred on the power of a brilliant creative idea". They are reportedly looking for partners to join the venture.
Forsyth left adam&eveDDB in February 2017, while Priest departed in the summer of this year. Golding and Murphy are reportedly expected to leave in the upcoming spring, but a year-long non-complete clause in their contracts mean that any new agency isn't likely to open before the beginning of 2020.
