LEWIS and Tayburn join forces!

We’re delighted to share the exciting news that LEWIS has acquired Tayburn, one of the UK’s strongest and most respected brand and packaging agencies. In bringing together two of Scotland’s longest-standing creative businesses, we’ll unite almost a century of design and digital expertise.

We plan to combine the expertise and streamline the services LEWIS and Tayburn offer, to deliver the industry’s best in strategy and insight, brand development, creative design, packaging, multichannel campaigns, and web development. Our clients won’t need to settle for anything less in any category.

In coming together we’ll continue to develop a unique agency model; where individual expertise is fostered, and clients can work directly with experts in the areas they need support. This expertise will be backed up by a commercial mindset that will continue to help guide clients seamlessly when it comes to business decision-making and planning.

Announcing the news, David LEWIS (CEO) said: “For the past year, we’ve been looking closely at the changes in the market and the evolving requirements of our client base. Following several strategic discussions, we are delighted to announce that we have acquired brand and design agency Tayburn.

We want to be at the heart of every great business. This means offering a level of expertise and a unique approach that’s unparalleled in the industry. LEWIS and Tayburn have specific sets of skills that naturally complement one another, and we share a real belief in operating a people-led business that prioritises the long-term success and happiness of our clients.”

Given the strength of reputation and longevity in the market, both LEWIS and Tayburn will continue to operate as individual brands, and there will be no changes to team members or contracts currently in place. We look forward to introducing our clients to our extended team and offering them an even better experience and wider range of skills, without compromising on the things they love about working with their existing agency.

Richard Simpson, Joint Managing Director at Tayburn commented: "Throughout my time in the industry, LEWIS is one of those agencies that we have always admired because of their longevity, foresight to embrace new trends and their enviable client list of major institutions and household names.

“Following initial conversations to explore the possibilities of aligning with each other, it became apparent just how similar our vision and values are. As the benefits to our colleagues and clients became clear thanks to our complimentary services and shared beliefs, the potential of our coming together is limitless.”
