Digitas is where connected experiences bring brands to life. 

Like the unicorn, Digitas is a rare beast, with strategy, technology, data, creativity and media under one roof. We believe in a different approach to designing experiences for brands. 

The future lies in combining the memorability of brand thinking with the empathy of design thinking, as we believe brands should strive to create a Total Brand Experience. We create connected experiences through our capabilities in - Experience Consulting, Platforms & Products, Precision Media and CRM, Comms & Content. 

We have a different way of working to most agencies, casting is a strategic deliverable, and we build multidisciplinary teams fluent in marketing and technology. We have a process for designed collaboration and we solve problems through making. 

Digitas operates in 42 offices in 27 countries and is expanding rapidly with 3500+ employees and is part of the Publicis Groupe.

The New Business department at Digitas is responsible for identifying prospective clients, defining the strategy to attract new clients and running the pitch process to win new business; ultimately, bringing revenue into the agency from winning new clients.
