Why Did Gap's Creative Director Leave?
The man who headed up Gap's marketing and advertising campaigns has left the company, according to WWD (subscription required). After a 14-year run at Gap, Dennis Leggett decided that enough was enough, and has decided to move on. Sources told WWD that Leggett was frustrated with Gap's poor performance over the last decade. It seems that Leggett's position might not be filled. Instead, Laird+Partners--the creative consulting firm that does most of Gap's campaigns--will likely be playing a bigger role in things. Of course, the fashion world is wondering: What does this mean for Patrick Robinson?
