Isobar, the digital agency from Dentsu Aegis Network, has expanded its operations to Sri Lanka.
Isobar Sri Lanka will offer end-to-end full service digital media creative and technology services and help clients navigate the world of tangible and intangible businesses through mobile brand commerce, product innovations, artificial intelligence (AI), virtual reality (VR), the internet of things (IOT) and wearables.
Last year, Dentsu Grant Group, Sri Lanka's integrated communications agency with a 60-year-old legacy, disrupted the nation’s advertising industry with the introduction of the global marketing conglomerate Dentsu Aegis Network into the country. Now, it will reinvent Sri Lanka’s rapidly growing digital economy, with the launch of its full-service digital agency — Isobar.
Shamsuddin Jasani, Group Managing Director, Isobar South Asia, said, “I am very excited to launch Isobar in this amazing country. Sri Lanka is a rising mobile economy with smartphone penetration, growing by over 20% and mobile penetration growing over 120% year-on-year. With the launch of Isobar Sri Lanka, we are looking at creating a leading agency for the digital age that follows a true full service model. Under the guidance of Neela and her team, I am sure we will be a force to reckon with in this market in the years to come.”
Speaking on the launch of Isobar Sri Lanka, Neela Marikkar, Chairperson, Dentsu Grant Group and Dentsu Aegis Network Sri Lanka, said, “We are thrilled to be introducing such an iconic brand into the Sri Lankan advertising industry. We are fortunate to be working so closely with our global and regional offices; we are confident that we will be able to use their global knowledge and skills to help develop business opportunities for our clients as well as help the digital economy of the country and accelerate through Isobar’s experience-led transformation and brand commerce expertise.”
