Company Description

Spark Foundry is one of four global media agency brands within Publicis Media. The force of acceleration, or the speed of change is so strong today that it has the potential to leave industries including our own behind. So, at Spark Foundry we are working towards driving positive change. For ourselves, our clients and society in general! We are an Acceleration Agency.

At Spark Foundry acceleration applies to every layer of our business. It refers to how we relish change, seek ever more innovative partners, embrace the increasing unknowns and continually learn, unlearn and learn everything again – all over again. We will continually live and work as if we are in beta (nerdy way for saying nothing is ever completed), in order to boost brand relevance for clients, drive brand value and grow their business and ours – today and in to the future. Our pursuit of what’s next will be relentless.
