Full service agency DraftFCB officially launched in the Australian and New Zealand markets today, signalling the regional introduction of a revolutionary agency model first mooted by US Agency Head Howard Draft in June 2006, when the global merger was announced.
According to Draft, the new agency model is a direct response to client demands for a fresh approach in a shifting marketing landscape. DraftFCB combines the disciplines and heritage of two global powerhouses, advertising agency FCB and direct marketing agency, Draft. The tools and methodology of DraftFCB will make extensive use of data analytics to help deliver behaviour changing creative work.
Says DraftFCB New Zealand CEO Bryan Crawford: “At the crux of DraftFCB is a commitment to change: changing the way we work with clients, the way we work with each other, and the way we solve problems, so we deliver true behaviour changing ideas.
“We will benefit from the development work that has gone on in the US since the merger was announced in terms of new tools, methodologies and IP. We’ve listened carefully to what current and potential clients want from their agency, and with DraftFCB we’re providing them with the answer.”

What's the relationship between Draft and Lowe?

I know they are both Interpublic companies, but does Draft work with both of them?

I'm confused. Glad I'm not a client.
