Rokkan: Not For Sale

Despite a few tips we’ve received over the last few days saying otherwise, we’ve been told that no, New York-based digital shop Rokkan is not plotting to sell to Anomaly. A spokesperson tells us,  “…there has not been any conversation about acquisition. We do work with Anomaly from time to time, but that’s really it.” So, guess that answers that for the time being.

In other news regarding Rokkan, which won digital AOR duties for Stoli a few months back (example of work here), the agency’s hired DailyCandy.com and Frog Design alum Heather Ricciardi as executive user experience director. As her new title implies, Ricciardi will help lead Rokkan’s UX team.
