Following a creative review that commenced late last year, AA Insurance has parted ways with Special Group and appointed DDB as its new creative agency. But it isn’t all bad news for Special Group, with the agency picking up the cross-Tasman Bell Tea and Coffee Company account.

Updated with a comment from Lassoo director Anna St George.
