Jamshop, the Adelaide based creative agency, has been acquired by Blackbocks.
Blackbocks owner, Brenton Bock, says the acquisition ensures the group is a “formidable force in the industry”.
The two Adelaide agencies will merge and be known as Blackbocks/Jamshop.
Jamshop CEO and creative director Jim Robinson, account director Gail Reudiger and a number of other Jamshop staff will join the Blackbocks team.
Jamshop’s Johnny Velis will remain creative director at the new agency and Becq Hinton remains head of art.
The agency has also appointed channel strategist, Lucy McFarlane and digital channel manager Morgan Riddle.
Bock says: “Now with a diverse range of clients across the nation and abroad, blackbocks/Jamshop’s product offering is strategically smart, creative and proving extremely valuable to both our new and long term clients, on the back of a unique culture and terrific working environment here at Norwood”.
“That is blackbocks/ Jamshop and it is this culture that has made us successful today and this, together with our passion, will no doubt drive our future success.”
