Pair of Ad Veterans Team Up to Form Gaslamp Quarter Agency

A pair of advertising veterans, Art Bradshaw and Emily Rex, last week officially launched, Departure, with a couple of big-name clients , Gateway Inc., a former San Diego computer firm that relocated to Irvine and was recently bought by Taiwan-based Acer Inc. and Limelight Networks, a Tempe, Ariz.-based provider of content for media companies.

They’ve also “geared up” their Gaslamp Quarter offices with a staff of 20 and expect to soon land some other clients, but are staying mum on that for now.

Departure was formed to help clients address “new” media, including online and digital needs, and to blend the two with traditional print and broadcasting advertising, they said.

Rex, a principal and director of account management, and Bradshaw, also a principal and chief creative officer, have 35 years of agency experience combined and have been involved in building brands for Harley Davidson, the San Diego Zoo, Pick Up Stix restaurants, Nestle, WD-40 Co., Nissan, General Motors Corp. and others.

The partners also announced that they have a second office in Los Angeles and that they have formed a relationship with Digitaria Interactive Inc., a 10-year-old San Diego-based, independent digital marketing and technology firm.

“Catching a proposal on film is a bit tricky, but doable,” Bauman added. “It takes a lot of planning and a bit of practice.”

To snap the photo of the Orange County couple, Peter Braunz and Erin Walker, that appeared in The New York Times, Bauman said he hid in a bush as the prospective groom surprised his intended with a ring at the end of a planned mini-scavenger hunt for her.

“It was a lot of fun to capture that precious moment, but at the same time, I felt a bit like a thief in hiding,” he added.
