Publicis Media is one arm of the giant Publicis Groupe – the 3rd largest communications group in the world. They own a diverse set of large agencies in London (Blue 449, Mediavest, Performics, Zenith and Starcom) and had recognised a need to bring them together to encourage more collaboration.
They worked with experiential agency C+IB to create an event that would allow the agencies to market their skills to each other. The concept was ‘A Town called Publicis Media’, a pop-up American-style town with working shops – each one affiliated with a different agency.
We were approached to create visuals for the event, a mammoth task which included five new shop brands and a supporting cast of collateral and logos for the shops, Amanda’s bar, Publicis services and public spaces – everything to make it as authentic as possible.
The event drew over a thousand attendees from the agencies, with the party continuing long into the night.
