Deloitte Digital is rolling out a new creative offering in the Irish market called Acne. The move to expand its existing offering follows its acquisition of the Swedish creative shop Acne in August 2017.
Founded in 1996, and headquartered in Stockholm, some of Acne’s clients include the likes of IKEA, Volvo, Luis Vuitton, H&M, Spotify, Max, Telenor and Instagram. The agency offers a range of creative, digital, strategic, film and digital services for clients.The agency, which continues to trade under the Acne name, employs 160 in offices in London, Stockholm, Toyko, Berlin and Paris. With plans to launch in Ireland in 2020, the agency is seeking to hire a number of creative staff for its Dublin office.
Acne’s work has been globally recognised and led to numerous awards in prestigious shows such as Cannes Lions, D&AD, One Club and New York Festivals.
At the time of the acquisition in August, Paul Thompson, head of Deloitte Digital for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA), said: “The acquisition of Acne is an important move towards Deloitte Digital offering a full range of digital and creative services, with clients increasingly looking for a partner with multidisciplinary skills. We aim to deliver our clients’ ambitions, whether that be launching a new strategy, product or service. By combining Deloitte’s deep data and technological expertise, with Acne’s exceptional creative experience, together we will help build brands for the digital age.”
