Retrofuzz To Acquire Eskimo Creative
RetroFuzz, the Manchester based digital design agency for the creative industries, today announced that an agreement had been reached whereby they would wholly acquire Eskimo Creative, the award-winning visual communications, strategic design and branding agency.
“We’ve admired Eskimo’s work from afar for a number of years, so we’re delighted to announce this acquisition” said Matthew Kendall, co-founder of RetroFuzz. “The combining of Eskimo's design and brand expertise with RetroFuzz’s specialism in web and digital innovation was a clear indicator to us of a great and positive partnership waiting to happen. We’re excited about the possibilities this acquisition opens up and what the future holds for us.”
“The Eskimo philosophy has always been one of strategic collaboration,” said Mark Janson, founder of Eskimo Creative. “Seeking out productive partnerships that allow us to create well-crafted, considered and effective design solutions is what we love doing. From our very early discussions it was clear we share the same principal values, so we are humbled and grateful to now be in a position to pursue this opportunity.”
Eskimo founder Mark Janson will take up the post of creative managing director at RetroFuzz with immediate effect, supporting co-directors Jonathan McNamara and Matthew Kendall. RetroFuzz will continue to support existing Eskimo clients, and the combined company will be in a position to offer a more complete range of services to both existing and new clients.
The next twelve months will see RetroFuzz venture into a period of strategic expansion building on its core client base in music, fashion, lifestyle and digital innovation with a number of new, innovative projects in the pipeline.
