Brothers and Sisters is a London-based creative boutique which joined the UK's top 30 agencies by billings for the first time in 2011 because of its work for satellite broadcaster Sky. (It has slipped in and out of the Top 30 ever since). The satellite broadcaster remains its biggest client by far, but the agency also has built up a collection of other increasingly significant accounts. The agency was founded in 2007 by Andy Fowler, previously Sky's inhouse creative director, still group ECD of B&S and majority owner of the business. Matthew Charlton, former co-founder of BETC London, joined the agency as chief executive in 2014. That year the group also launched its own inhouse production arm, Making.

Adbrands Weekly Update 29th Sep 2016: Ads of the Week "Tumbleweed". Here's a brilliant movie pastiche from London indie Brothers and Sisters for cinema advertising mediaowner Pearl & Dean, celebrating some of the unsung behind-the-scenes heroes of old Hollywood. Here, find out how exactly they used to get that tumbleweed to roll across the screen in classic Westerns. It's a lovely idea, and the recreation of the style and tone of old-time movie and newsreel footage is just perfect. Excellent!
