Another Agency Vet Joins Apple

david burtonDon’t call it a flood, but yet another creative agency veteran has joined Apple.

In this case, Apple went overseas in its ongoing talent search, signing creative director David Burdon as the newest member of its in-house design team.

The Drum reports that Burton’s London-based agency/design consultancy Glad recently closed, and now we have a better idea as to why: he moved to San Francisco to serve as senior art director at the Mac-maker.

That blog is still awaiting the official Apple comment that will never arrive, but this move definitely fits into a pattern of hires: earlier this week the company announced the addition of former Nike/Burberry social chief Musa Tariq to Angela Ahrendts’s expanding in-house team.

The big question: what does the company plan to do beyond creating more ads like this one?
