The London office of Media Square digital consultancy Twentysix is merging into the London office of the group’s branding consultancy Lloyd Northover.
Lloyd Northover has already moved its office in the capital from Shoreditch to Twentysix London’s Tottenham Court Road premises. The Leeds office of Twentysix will continue to operate as an independent consultancy.
David Worthington (pictured), chairman of Lloyd Northover Group, says one of the aims of the move is to ’enhance and strengthen’ Lloyd Northover’s existing digital capabilities. He says, ’Twentysix London has a full digital capability and is considered a better solution than the usual design company approach of setting up a digital arm. It is increasingly important for all clients to have a proper digital capability.’
Joint clients for Twentysix London and Lloyd Northover include National Savings & Investments, House of Fraser and Shell.
Last year Lloyd Northover split its London operations across two sites, with the brand communications division moving to Shoreditch and the automotive division moving to Marlow to share offices with fellow Media Square consultancy Holmes & Marchant (DW 3 June 2009). Media Square also announced the scrapping of its previous divisional structure.
Earlier this year, the automotive division was sold to the office’s existing management (www. designweek.co.uk, 8 March).
