Irish digital marketing agency, Brand Social, is set to enter the UK market this month with the opening of new offices in central London.
The recently rebranded Dublin-based agency - formerly The Creative District - will provide a range of digital marketing services to brands based in the UK and currently counts Universal Pictures, RTE and the Digital Marketing Institute amongst its clients in Ireland.

One of the company's core service offerings is helping marketers and brand managers make best use of their digital content by ensuring that it is fully accessible to consumers, regardless of what device or platform they access it from.
Speaking of the new brand launch and office opening Ken Stanley, MD of Brand Social says: "Our brand identity received a much needed overhaul to ensure we had a more globally accessible image. This is particularly important now that we're setting our sights overseas."
"International expansion is a significant step forward for us and while we're ambitious about our plans for the UK we are still very much focused on continuing to build on our customer base in Ireland, where we are headquartered."
The award-winning company was set up in 2009 by Ken Stanley and Ray Doyle.
