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.
He spent a decade as Creative Director and Chairman of TBWA/London, producing award-winning work for clients as diverse as PlayStation and Playtex.
He set up BMB on Election Day 05.05.05 with creative partner, Bil Bungay.
Moving into the world of movies, Beattie produced the Bafta-winning MOON, directed by former BMB creative, Duncan (Bowie) Jones in 2008 and is currently working on the follow-up movie, MUTE, due for release in 2017.
He received an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from Birmingham City University in 2011 and has set up a charitable foundation: THE JACK AND ADA BEATTIE FOUNDATION in memory of his parents.
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 2017.
