Well, here’s some good news to report from the GSD&M camp. The Austin-based agency has been named digital creative partner for discount–er, sorry, “off-price”–retailer Marshalls, which we always had trouble distinguishing from TJ Maxx (well, they’re both TJX companies after all). Anyhow, it was a rather convenient move considering that GSD&M has served as Marshalls’ creative AOR since 2008. Regarding the brand’s decision to go with GSD&M, Marshalls VP of marketing Emily Trent says, “GSD&M has been great partners in bringing the Marshalls vision to life. This vision coupled with their experience in the retail and digital space made it the right decision to move
all digital, print and broadcast creative under one roof.”
The Marshalls digital biz had previously been handled by Hill Holliday.
