Thursday Odds and Ends

-Let football season begin, thanks to Tide (above).

-Considering that the agency’s moving into Ford Field, home of the Detroit Lions, it’s only fitting that the entity now known as Lowe Campbell Ewald has been tapped to handle lead creative duties for the NFL franchise this season.

-Baltimore-based agency Carton Donofrio Partners is shuttering operations after nearly 50 years. One tipster says, “Kudos for [12-year CDP vet] Ellen Moore — a very very smart woman, just not the CEO type — for going out with class.” link

-Los Angeles-based prodco Boxer Films has signed Italian directing duo CRIC for their first U.S. commercial representation.

-Following an “extensive search,” DDB Canada’s Vancouver office has nabbed AOR duties for British Columbia Automobile Association (BCAA).
