Co-Founder, Beattie McGuinness Bungay
Trevor Beattie has been responsible for a string of extremely visible and talked about advertising campaigns. He achieved lasting notoriety in the 1990s via Eva Herzigova and Wonderbra’s “Hello Boys” poster campaign.
A life-long Labour supporter, he masterminded the ad campaigns for the Labour Party in both the 2001 and 2005 General Elections (including the infamous ‘Hague with Thatcher’s Hair’ billboard in 2001). Beattie’s stark re-vamping of high street fashion chain French Connection UK as FCUK managed to even outshine Wonderbra in the PR stakes.
During a decade-long stint as Creative Director and Chairman of TBWA/London, he produced award-winning work for clients as diverse as PlayStation and Playtex.
He set up Beattie McGuinness Bungay (BMB) on Election Day 05.05.05. BMB won 16 of its first 20 new business pitches and now lists Carling, Ikea, McCain and Selfridges among its clients.
Moving into the world of movies, Beattie produced the award-winning Moon, directed by former BMB creative, Duncan (Bowie) Jones in 2008.
He will personally be devising the marketing campaign for Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic Space Tourism Programme and is booked to become Adland’s first-ever fare-paying Space Traveller in 2012.
