Mother, New York, has been tapped to handle global ad work for Coca-Cola's Powerade brand, without a review. A Coca-Cola spokesman said Mother will be Powerade's first global agency. Sapient has also been tapped to handle digital work. The appointments do not impact any of Powerade's local agency relationships.
The assignment is an expansion of the independent agency's relationship with Coca-Cola; Mother, New York, has previously done work for Coke's Full Throttle energy-drink brand, while Mother's London headquarters office has done a range of work including TV spots as part of brand Coca-Cola's Open Happiness campaign, sponsorship events and broadcast work for the Diet Coke brand.
"Working with Mother simply extends the relationship that we already have with them in Latin America and Great Britain," the Coca-Cola spokesman said.
