technologies, and continues to be the epicenter of young, brave ideas. TBWA\California is about finding ways to remain nimble, brand and idea-focussed, no matter how big we get."

TBWA\California is developing a new initiative, the media arts lab. The media arts lab mission is to find new ways to apply the media arts model across all companies under TBWA\California. The goal is to develop brand-centric ideas that innovate and experiment with all kinds of media arts forms and define the best ways to launch brands into popular culture.

TBWA\California president and CEO Robert LePlae said, "TBWA\California is the next evolution in our business model and

represents our vision for how things will be done in our industry. The new structure is designed to align the agency's resources for future growth and

reward our best people, keeping them focussed on our client's brands."

TBWA\Chiat\Day has long been a pioneer of disruptive marketing ideas. From disrupting the Super Bowl and the Olympics advertising over 20 years ago, to innovating new ways of delivering brand ideas today for its world-class

roster of clients. TBWA\California and its expanded focus on the media arts are the next chapter of the ever-evolving story of the agency.



Clow adds, "We want to create a brand led, idea-centric model that organises all of our talents and skills into groups dedicated to and responsible for disruptive ideas that make brands famous. This is a great opportunity for us to raise the bar again and to discover new ways of working."

TBWA creates disruptive ideas for global clients, including Absolut, adidas, Apple, Beiersdorf, Hdagen-Dazs, Henkel, Masterfoods, McDonald's, Michelin, Nissan and Sony PlayStation.
