Talon Outdoor was set up in 2007 as the UK’s only independently-owned Out of Home media specialist. Eric Newnham took a majority stake in the business in 2012 with ambitious growth plans, without compromising the vision of providing exceptional client service, independent advice and strategic expertise.
The management team has expanded to encompass the top players in Britain’s Out of Home sector; not only are they hugely experienced, they all have a hands-on client approach. This team now consists of Frank Bryant, James Copley, Andy Tilley, Grant Murray and Eric Newnham, as well as Adrian Skelton and Nick Mawditt.
In April 2013 Omnicom Media Group handed Talon their entire outdoor portfolio, meaning the agency now handles the outdoor work for brands spanning McDonald's, Sony Pictures, VW Group, Google and many others along with several independent media agencies, including JAA, Goodstuff, AMS Media Group and Ptarmigan Media. As well as having enviable experience in traditional OOH, Talon’s expanded team works across communication strategies for traditional and digital Out of Home, location marketing, mobile and creative solutions.
Today, as a 90-strong agency – and growing - Talon ranks as one of the biggest in the UK and also one of the most exciting. Combining independence with a collaborative approach Talon promotes open working between agencies, clients and media partners as well as a tailored and technology-led approach to individual agency cultures and planning philosophies.
