Acquisition adds to Engine's digital production capability Fantastic Thinking
Fantastic Thinking is an 28-strong digital implementation team, based in Egham, Surrey. It has a particular strength in build and technical development. The Fantastic Thinking team will remain in their Egham location, and the four lead Partners Matt Harvey, Alister Lilley, Richard Hiscutt and Philip Scotcher will all remain with the business.
Debbie Klein, Engine UK CEO, said: "We believe that a comprehensive technical production capability is an important part of Engines integrated client offer. With fast-turnaround design and delivery critical to effective campaigns, the addition of Fantastic Thinking to the Engine family means we now have a nimble and seamless digital production and build facility in-house.
A number of Engine companies have worked with Fantastic Thinking for several years, delivering digital platforms and content for a range of Engine clients across marketing and corporate communications disciplines. This acquisition formalises the longstanding relationship and will strengthen Engines ability to offer competitive digital design and production across its wider client base.
