In the countdown to this annual with Mother, colleagues acquaint me not to be too soft. Soft? I’m absolutely doughy about Mother. I try to anneal my sinews by reminding myself of its ‘hard-nosed businessman’ commercials for Orange, which the company’s aloft arch executive, Hans Snook, declared as ‘absolutely the affliction things I accept anytime seen’. I anticipate about the Lilt ladies wrestling, inexplicably, with weatherman Ian McCaskill. I anticipate about the new-business adviser who tells me Mother is anarchy to appointment with. I anticipate about Mother’s adored attitude to its own brand.
Mother, meanwhile, is actuality precious. First, the ally accede to be interviewed, afresh we about accept to abolish because they won’t be photographed calm by Campaign.
Saville calls and I allocution fast, declaring that if a accumulation attempt is acceptable abundant for every added bureau in Campaign’s history, afresh it’s acceptable abundant for Mother. Saville counters that he’s never accustomed a beeline attempt of the partners, because he cares so acutely about aggregate actuality ‘true to the brand’. He says that the US annual Adroitness attempt bristles near-naked models instead of the ally (‘a accolade to vanity’). Even the FT showed them sitting in their old Sprite band antic huge handlebar moustaches.
We accept a continued abstract constitutional about issues of beat ascendancy and ‘protecting one’s brand’, and somehow we accede that they will be photographed. But they will be fabricated up as bad-tempered old men, the antic actuality that ‘the aboriginal ten years accept age-old us by 40’. We are all a little shaken, but the annual date has arrived.
The accession at Mother’s HQ in Shoreditch feels accustomed abundant for an ad agency. Toughened, brave bottle doors, a stainless-steel desk, awfully admirable and awfully affable staff. It’s alone aback you ascend two abrupt sets of stairs to acknowledge a huge accessible amplitude bedeviled by a accurate slab tabletop, at which added than a hundred bodies can sit, that the differences emerge. The table is a allegory for what Mother holds baby – accessible communication, chat and equality.
Mother was built-in in December 1996, aback the founders Mark Waites, a artistic at McCann Erickson’s Amster Yard in New York; Stef Calcraft, an annual administrator at Bartle Bogle Hegarty; and Libby Brockhoff, an American art administrator from GGT, got a alarm from Robert Saville. The aloft collective artistic administrator at GGT had been accustomed aloof two weeks to complete the artistic presentation for a huge media absorb by Approach 5’s business director, David Brook, and he bare acceptable bodies about him.
The aggregation able the British accessible for Approach 5’s barrage aboriginal in 1997 through 270 columnist ads, 50 posters, three TV ads and a sea of below-the-line activity, all created in four months. By then, Mother had a name, coined by Brockhoff, with its adverse undertones as the blowing mother of all agencies, as able-bodied as a ancestors abutting and a nurturer of good, alive ideas. Its aesthetics from the alpha sounds appropriately homespun: to ‘do the best appointment you can, accomplish a active and accept fun’ – in that order.
People wondered, was it astute to set up for a audible client? Wasn’t this the beneath boastful 90s adaptation of Kevin Morley Marketing, which set up to annual Rover? Saville argued that he had affluence of approaches to alpha up agencies with no clients, and it charge be bigger to set up with a client, ‘especially if it is a applicant who wants to do all the things I appetite to do’.
From the outset, Mother wasn’t about creating a acceptable bureau that would be hungrily hunting bottomward new business, or gluttonous out a celebrated acreage in Golden Square. It did away with adamant roles. It recruited from away aback the convenance was uncommon, so that today, its London bureau of 120 agents is added than 50 per cent foreign. The ally brace up to advance projects and pitches, and there are no annual managers or planners in the acceptable sense.
‘We approved to booty our references from a broader palette, from writers in the US, Scandinavian designers and so on. Shoreditch wasn’t about pounds per aboveboard foot, it was us adage from here, you can see further,’ Saville says.
Above all, Mother capital audience to feel complex in its achievement to an aberrant degree. The attempt of this complete banal but, together, they abbreviate what has admiring audience of capricious sizes and beyond best artefact categories to the agency.
Famously, anybody sits about that big table – creatives, strategists, producers, ‘mothers’ (as they are called, agnate to apparel elsewhere), accounts and ‘nannies’ (PAs). Clients, aback they appear in, sit alongside these agents and casting is no different.’We’ve consistently approached casting as if a applicant is already alive with us,’ Calcraft says. ‘No red carpets, no stunts, and none of the accustomed schmoozing. We accept the best audience don’t accept time for this, and are not absorbed in it.’
From the outset, it seemed to work. A year from aperture its doors in Soho Square, and afore it had headed east to Clerkenwell, campaigns and wins snowballed. Aboriginal achievement included appointment for Abracadabra FM, Batchelors Super Noodles, Virgin.net, Coca-Cola’s Lilt, and Kickers – all funny, absorbing campaigns. Critics, as ever, aback faced with addition agency’s success, acicular their knives.
In the determinative canicule of an agency, a acknowledged attack can apply an access on its all-embracing output. Was Mother’s aboriginal knockabout appearance on best things, from Abracadabra FM to Lilt and Vodka Source, candidly afflicted by its appointment for Batchelors Super Noodles?
The accomplishments is that the bureau abutting the Unilever agenda in May 1997, aback it won the Super Noodles angle adjoin M&C Saatchi and Still Price Lintas. The appointment repositioned Super Noodles from a ancillary bowl eaten with meat and veg, appear a bite aliment for adults. Featuring ‘real-life-on-a-sofa’ vignettes, it broke into the destructive adeptness of the ambition market, and set the accent for an aboveboard autonomous reel.
The highlight atom came in 2001, with a caricature of West Ancillary Story where, instead of the Sharks and Jets, the battling gangs comprised bloom nuts, such as Lentils and Brown Rice, and slobs, including Lager and Fried Eggs. The advantageous foodies danced beautifully, the slobs were hopeless. Using their huge bellies, however, the slobs won. It formed – and bodies admired it.
This affectionate of appointment absolutely accustomed bodies to abolish Mother as a gag factory, but Waites says: ‘We were never abashed to do autonomous work, and in that we were accomplishing annihilation new, we were artful John Webster and others.’
Medd adds: ‘The reel is broader now, but it wasn’t a acquainted accommodation on our part, it’s a evidence of the audience we accept now.’

Given his role as artistic administrator at an bureau area the appointment is everything, and his ascendant shareholding (of which added later), does Saville apply disproportionate influence? No, the ally insist. The aggregation is run on a consensual base – ‘one man, one vote’ – on all issues. They haven’t gone to a actor vote in ten years.
In fact, Mother seems to be based on affective partnerships – Saville and Calcraft, Saville and Waites, Saville and Medd, and so on. In added words, capricious partnerships depending on the issue(s) at stake.
What’s accurate is that like best good, constant partnerships, it comprises berserk altered characters with audible roles – all afar from Saville, who admits he ‘meddles in everything’. He and Calcraft, added bullish than the others, charge reining in on occasion, but accept the ethics of the bureau to the alfresco apple with 18-carat passion. Medd, the aloft Coke client, keeps abutting contacts with the business association and focuses on the centralized culture. Waites, bigger accepted than Saville alfresco of the UK, attack the apple on annual of Mother. Clark – accepted as ‘Mr Money’ – is far from the ambitious or confrontational accounts guy.
Based on the rules set by ample American agencies, Mother would accept developed internationally on the aback of audience whose budgets were big abundant to absolve aperture a annex office. Instead, and actuality goes addition angelic cow, its action has been to ‘create a ripple’ in a bazaar area agreeing agents could be begin to abound a business domestically. Thus, in New York, at Mother Inc, the bigger audience are Virgin, Coke, Miller, LVMH and Johnson & Johnson – alone two of which, Coke and J&J, are with Mother London. In Buenos Aires, at Madre, the audience accommodate Camper and Banco Hipotecario, both calm accounts.
Over a decade, the agency’s audience accept powered Mother to constant and abundant growth. A comb through the accounts for Mother Holdings (which comprises the three ad agencies and stakes in four subsidiaries) reveals that about-face in 1998, aback abundant numbers were filed for the aboriginal time, was pounds 6,251,321 and pre-tax accumulation was pounds 336,576.
By 2005, about-face was pounds 49,490,367 and pre-tax accumulation was pounds 3,452,610. Its operating allowance of 14.74 per cent in 2005 is acceptable (but not exceptional, AMV’s is 18.2 per cent), and Mother is acceptable at befitting the arrangement of agents costs to assets stable.
Expansion alfresco the amount bureau by conduct and internationally has been the key bureau to Mother’s growth, which it has never adopted banknote to fund. It took a 25 per cent pale in the media architect Naked, afresh 59 per cent of the new-media specialist Poke, a pale in the architecture bureau Saturday, and 7 per cent of the TV assembly aggregation Monkey.
The partners’ alone stakes in these companies alter according to which one of them brings the accord to the table. According to Calcraft: ‘The point is creating a cardinal of ‘best-in-class’ businesses about us. We allotment a boyhood of business, but they are all destinations in their own right.’
Saville adds: ‘There’s endless of areas to fill, we aren’t through the abounding set.’
Bob Willott awarded Mother best marks in his Business Services Banking Intelligence Awards in 2005. He says the bureau is awful bartering – if anytime the ally capital to do so. He said: ‘Their anarchistic appearance belies complete business faculty underneath. Their antithesis area is strong, with no debt and pounds 6.9 actor of shareholders’ funds retained. This indicates that Mother has a advisable and actuating duke at the banking helm.’
Saville and his ally assert that adeptness is key. All feel that Mother’s afterlife is to be the best bureau in the apple in the wild, the affliction in captivity. ‘Hands up who wants to sell!’ Saville says, as his ally advisedly sit on their hands.
‘If you advertise Mother, you’d annihilate it,’ Calcraft says. ‘We appetite to accumulate our adeptness apple-pie and pure.’
‘Simply by abashed the gravitational cull to sell, we’ve concluded up attractive like radicals,’ Waites reckons.
‘People sit me bottomward and blow me in the chest, ambitious to apperceive aback we’re selling,’ Medd laughs.
Ritual denials accurately recorded, we advance to altercate added routes advanced for Mother, ones that adeptness bottle the culture, acquiesce the founders to adventure further, booty out some banknote and absorb independence.To do this, we charge accompany up the affair of who owns what, a accountable that provokes Saville. ‘Equity shares are irrelevant,’ he says. ‘You’re not activity to accomplish a big affair of it, are you?’ Anyway, he owns 45 per cent of Mother Holdings. Calcraft has 25 per cent, Waites 15 per cent, Medd 10 per cent and Clark 5 per cent.
Meanwhile, Mother Advertising, absolute the London agency, is 90 per cent endemic by Mother Holdings. In 2001, 10 per cent of the bureau was accustomed to the agents in allotment options, these based on achievement and tenure.
This was replicated for Mother’s two all-embracing offices – Mother Inc in New York, opened in 2003, and Madre, in Buenos Aires, opened in 2005. Four bounded ally and agents own 49 per cent of New York, with Mother Holdings owning the rest. Three ally and agents own 40 per cent in Buenos Aires.
With the agents captivation alone 10 per cent of the London agency, extending that pale seems to action a adventitious to let some adolescent claret through. The founding ally appearance no admiration or ambition to leave, but may ambition to move on from their accepted roles. ‘One day,’ Clark says, ‘Mother London could become 50 per cent employee-owned, and afresh we’d accept a lot of disinterestedness to comedy with.’

So much, so different. And yet, on occasion, Mother has accepted itself accountable to the aforementioned old announcement laws, alpha with: If you abound too fast, your affection suffers. ‘We’ve never eaten annihilation bigger than the admeasurement of our head,’ Saville says. ‘And aback we did, it took us a year to abstract it.’
He is apropos to 2003 aback Mother won the astronomic Boots and Orange accounts and, in the process, absent its edge. ‘We had to accomplish boxy decisions,’ Saville says, ‘to afford bodies who weren’t appropriate for our culture. We weren’t at our best competitive.’
‘We were like a python that had eaten two huge meals. As we digested that business, some of the appointment suffered,’ Medd says.
How does the bureau that set out to put the appointment aboriginal feel about its achievement in 2006, a year aback it absent Orange, excluding the cinema brief, to Publicis Groupe? ‘Really good,’ Medd says. ‘It feels active again.’
Saville, consistently Mother’s sternest critic, sums it up: ‘Our highs could be higher, but we accept far beneath turkeys than we acclimated to, and beneath than most.’
Is it assured that Mother will become added austere with age? Will it about-face into JWT aback the ally are 40 years older? The signs are adjoin this. As I accomplishment this piece, a ’round-robin’ e-mail ancestor up, giving an annual of a abundantly abortive greyhound alleged Jus for Christmas, which Mother has bought and issued shares in. Why? Who knows, but that adulation of ball (juvenilia? – you decide) about the Mother cast endures. And appointment this year for Amnesty, Orange and Boots reeks of the old magic. If Mother is activity to about-face into JWT, afresh it had bigger get cracking. But that would be a abundant accident to the world, or at atomic to advertising’s little bend of it.
