The highly successful WMHAdaptive team will be fully integrated within the combined agency, and WMH&I will continue its role as the creative driving force within Branded.
Carol Lavender; “Both agencies have a long tradition of creating truly iconic brands through the combination of groundbreaking creativity and exceptional work. Having worked together successfully over the past four years we are now cementing our relationship and look forward to this next exciting chapter for us and our clients.”
Wybe Magermans: “It’s a fusion of big ideas backed up with beautiful craft. There is so much that unites WMH and Identica – the only question is why we didn’t do this sooner! Before co-founding WMH our Creative Director Garrick Hamm started his career as a junior designer with Michael Peters who went on to found Identica, and several of our team have worked at both WMH and Identica in the past”.
