The History of Company Mergers
In February 2013, globally recognized Publicis Groupe agencies, Digitas and LBi, joined forces to create the world’s foremost digital agency network, with a focus on digital marketing and technology capabilities. DigitasLBi created a new logo and brand identity to usher in the merge of Digitas and LBi.
DigitasLBi carefully assembles diverse teams of experts to suit any situation, taking ideas from strategy and concept to launch and evaluation. They were well suited to face the task of creating a new logo for the newly merged global powerhouse.
