Last month, Droga5 won the Toyota Scion account -- besting incumbent Attik, which has had the account since 2002. Attik was to continue to be part of the creative team for the brand and support
various marketing initiatives. Apparently, that has turned out not to be the case.
Parent company Dentsu will absorb Attik with employees at both the agency's LA and San Francisco offices
to be reassigned. While many Attik employees will find a home within Dentsu, there will be some layoffs, according to sources.
Regarding the closure, a Dentsu statement
reads, “After evaluating the Attik business with an eye towards future growth and
sustainability, we have decided to bring Attik into Dentsu Aegis Network. The result will be a reorganization of the business with a long-term view towards client needs and opportunities that will
most effectively leverage Attik’s talent, expertise and capabilities on a broader scale. We are actively working to ensure a smooth transition and to redeploy people within Dentsu Aegis
