We are very proud to announce that multi award winning director Trevor Melvin has joined Hotspur & Argyle. Trevor’s illustrious career has seen him work across a range of genres for myriad major agencies and brands across the world. A consummate craftsman, his work has been compared in Time Out to that of David Lynch and Martin Scorsese. Cultural commentator Peter York likened him to Mike Leigh.
Happily for us, despite regular forays into the longer form, he has remained true to his first love of advertising where he cut his teeth as a highly sought after agency creative and he joins H&A following stints at RSA, Paul Weiland’s and Blink.
Among his most lauded commercials are classics for VW, British Meat and Kit Kat and his BTAA Gold winning anti drink drive ad ‘Dave’ was described by BMB’s Trevor Beattie as ‘one of the most moving and brilliantly argued commercials I have ever seen’. His Cannes winning Central Beheer commercial ‘Rio’ was named among the Shots ‘Most Inspirational TV Spots’ of 2014.
