Well, maybe not in that order, but it seems that the rumors are looking to be true that Crispin is losing the Volkswagen account (not to mention also declining the invitation to participate in their agency review). This was later celebrated via twitter by Alex Bogusky’s wife (@boguskyswife) who’s now on a search for a navy blue replacement (look on the bright side, at least you know you won’t have to trade it in for a MINI).

In 2005 they resigned working on the MINI USA account in order to take on the German auto giant leading to even more rumors of possible replacements. It should be interesting to see who they end up with, according to Agency Spy some of the competitors invited to the review include SF-based Goodby Silverstein & Partners and Deutsch.

Created by TBWA, Toronto where Joe Amaral, James Ansley and Allen Oke are creative directors. Mark Zibert directed both of these for Sons and Daughters.

On a side-note, if you’d like to see a very creative way to show off your company employees, go checkout the Directors section on the Sons and Daughters website. Now just mouse over any of their portraits and see what happens….clever!
