By blending entertainment with advertising, Lemonade ensures its campaigns are as engaging as they are effective. The agency employs their unique process called Story 360, involving a deep dive into clients’ businesses to uncover compelling narratives that drive their campaigns, while its non-siloed approach fosters cross-departmental collaboration, driving creativity and cohesion.

“Consumers are hungry for long-form content such as shows and branded films that we’re confident brands will benefit from,” said Rowan Brooks, Co-Founder of Lemonade. We look forward to delighting audiences with the storytelling we are known for while delivering the top-rated performance that our clients count on to support their business goals.”

The newly acquired agency’s existing staff will be retained, and its core values and commitment to clients will remain unchanged.
