Creative Director Patrick Robinson Fired From Gap Patrick Robinson
Patrick Robinson has been let go as creative director at Gap. The news isn't particularly surprising, considering the brand's slumping sales. Plus, the company has been in cleanup mode—shuffling upper management and switching creative agencies.

But what's interesting is that Gap has yet to announce who will be succeeding Robinson as head. Pam Wallack, the new executive director of the Gap Global Creative Center says after spending three months with the team in New York, she decided to make a change.

The search is on for a successor to Robinson, although it's unclear whether they'll pick another name-brand designer or switch strategies and keep the design team under wraps. Currently, Jennifer Giangualano, senior vice president of kids and baby design, is taking charge.

What do you think, will Gap be able to turn around its image with Robison gone or was Robinson not the problem?
