It achieved a phenomenal 1,000,000 game plays in only 12 weeks and contributed to strong consumer engagement in the mobile space.

Simon Keane, CEO of CKSK Europe commented: “Having been the digital agency of record on Coors Light since 2010, we’re delighted to be appointed as the lead creative agency on the brand going forward. The Coors Light team have been fantastic partners and collectively we’ve created some brilliant and brave work that has delivered for the brand. This opportunity now allows us to help shape the future of the brand in Ireland and play an even bigger role in its exciting future”.

CKSK already has a strong foothold in the European market with a client list that includes Heineken, Sony PlayStation, Coors Light and global digital AOR for Sol Beer. Focused on driving creative technological innovation through its in-house teams of engineers, the agency has built its reputation on its ethos of understanding and serving the needs of real consumers.

Says Kieran: “Our expansion in the US market is in response to the needs of our existing clients. We have an aggressive growth plan in place for the US market which is based on our core philosophy that technology-led innovation and creativity is an inherent part of everything we do. This philosophy enables us to empower our clients to better connect with consumers in the increasingly fragmented, digitally-dominated media landscape.”

3D Printing. Making the future possible.

Many of you arriving at our CKSK reception may have seen our brilliant 3D Makerbot machine printing 3D shapes of many items including the torsos of some of our proud people.

In this TED talk, Bastian Scheafer explores how the 3D tech in our building today might build a jet plane in the future. Very cool.
