Melbourne based Dewey Horton is set to merge with Don Morris' start-up Yabber, based in Sydney. The merged identity will be called Big Red (already the name of the holding company of Dewey Horton) with offices in Melbourne and Sydney, and is tipped for a July 1 start. The directors will be Ted Horton (pictured), Chris Dewey, Don Morris and Jamie Drurie. Morris worked with Horton back in their Mojo days, and Dewey Horton also did the launch campaign for Soul Telephone - Yabber's only client. Morris, on the other hand, has strong contacts with Geoff Dixon of Qantas, the key maker and shaker of Dewey Horton's JetStar account.

I wish Chris Ted and my good friend Don Morris all the best for their new venture. They remain great, classy exponents of the advertising business. Even if they are my competitors.

Ted has always had a problem with Sean. Jealousy? But let me tell you Sean never bags anyone in the business and is a real gentleman.
He respects anyone who gets off their crack and has a crack. Seems cynicism reigns supreme. But to me Sean is the bigger bloke out of this.
