Common Industry has today announced its partnership with NME, the prestigious music and entertainment media brand. The agency will provide strategic consultancy for a series of upcoming projects, with a view to developing a new platform for the brand to be rolled out nationally.
The project will see Common Industry collaborating with NME’s in-house creative team, brand partners and select musicians on creative production and promotion.
Common Industry was selected following a three way competitive pitch.
More details about the projects will be announced in the coming months.
Andrew Sanders, Commercial Director at Time Inc. UK, said: “We are excited to Common Industry on board. In a competitive pitch process, we were impressed by their creative thinking, their understanding of our brief and audience as well as their enthusiasm for the NME brand.”
Liam Fay-Fright, Founding Partner of Common Industry, said: “Partnering with NME is a hugely exciting opportunity for the whole team at Common Industry, many of whom have grown up reading the NME on a weekly basis or plastering their walls with pictures ripped from the magazine’s pages. It is one of those iconic brands any agency team would love to work with and have a long a fruitful relationship. We are naturally receiving payment in blue M&Ms.”
