Spin the Agencies of Record (End of the World Edition)

Because the world is scheduled to end in flames (or something) at midnight tonight, we’d like to honor the following agencies for keeping a stiff upper lip and carrying on with business as usual. Congratulations to the following:

Dairy Queen restaurants has selected indie agency Barkley to manage creative duties. Dairy Queen spent $77 million, or the price of 2,800,000 blizzards, on domestic measured media last year. Dairy Queen is owned by one-percenter Warren Buffett‘s Berkshire Hathaway (which is headquartered in New York City, of course) and has more than 6,000 locations in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and 17 other countries.

Deussen Global Communications Inc. has been selected as agency of record for two elegant, family-owned businesses: The Yeatman hotel (a wine hotel in Porto, Portugal—seriously, does anything sound better than a “wine hotel”?), and winery Cakebread Cellars (Napa Valley, California). For these clients, Deussen will oversee a mix of media outreach, partnership programs, event marketing, social media interaction, and trade education.

Morris + King Shows Off Hip Office

Worth

New York-based boutique Morris + King hasn’t been quiet about showing off their hip, downtown office. And as a communications firm, we wouldn’t expect them to be.

Following a New York magazine feature last year, the agency now finds itself at the center of a spread in Worth magazine. Agency namesake Judith R. King is front and center.
