McCann Acquires AllofUs

Hey, why not throw in a little across-the-pond news this morning. McCann Worldgroup has bought up  London-based interactive design shop AllofUs, which was founded in 2003 and has worked for clients and organizations ranging from the BBC and Tate Britain to Nokia and Microsoft.

McCann’s CEO Nick Brien says that for now, AllofUs will work most closely with the Worldgroup UK offices, McCann London, MRM London and Momentum London. In addition, the AllofUs name will remain intact and the founders–design director Nick Cristea, director of R&D Orlando Mathias, AD Simon “Sanky” Sankarayya and business director Phil Gerrard–will partner with McCann NY/London CCO Linus Karlsson and McCann Erickson’s European chief innovation officer Matias Palm-Jensen.
