by Herman Manson (@marklives) A new Durban based agency, Conversation LAB, launched August 1 after three TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris staffers broke away to go it alone, has successfully been picking up significant new business.
Founders Kevin Power, Tamerin Borland and Jonathan Oliff have also signed up Brighton, UK, based creative director Christian Anstice. Anstice continues to work from Brighton using technology to collaborate with his new colleagues (he already oversaw a photo shoot done in SA from his office in Brighton without any hick-ups says Power).
Power was Head of Client Service and Digital at TBWA and before that served a stint in London as Brand Director for Publicis Modem London. Borland was a Strategic Planner at TBWA and Oliff Digital Account Executive at the same firm. All four has strong backgrounds in digital.
Yet Conversation LAB isn’t positioning itself as a digital agency – instead it is aiming to build on through-the-line thinking with a strong digital influence. The agency also promises to be strategically lead and media agnostic and has brought on board an interesting collective around the core team to assist it in cracking client problems.
