Following a competitive pitch process and public tender, Critical Mass, an Omnicom global digital marketing agency, has been named lead digital agency for South African Tourism in the UK. For the new assignment, Critical Mass will lead digital creative strategy, design and development for the brand as it looks to attract more UK visitors to South Africa.
“From the start, Critical Mass impressed us with its smart thinking, creative concepts and digital savvy, and passion for our brand,” commented Juan Herrada, UK Marketing & Communications Manager, South African Tourism. “What stood out for us most was that Critical Mass wasn’t afraid to point out the challenges facing our brand for attracting long-haul tourists. Critical Mass proved its understanding by developing big brand ideas that resonated strongly with our culture and values.”
Critical Mass will begin work immediately. New campaigns and digital experiences are expected to break early 2014 in the UK market.
