Dentsu Aegis Network has reached an agreement to buy 100 percent of Little Giant, an Auckland-headquartered digital creative agency.

The agency, founded in 2011, is being rebranded as "Little Giant, Linked by Isobar".

Dentsu Group called the acquisition "a strategic priority" because it will launch Isobar, one of its 10 global network brands, in New Zealand and allow it to complete the "full operating model offering" in the market. 

For the record, the group's 10 global brands are Carat, Dentsu (Dentsu-brand agencies), Dentsu X, iProspect, Isobar, Mcgarrybowen, Merkle, MKTG, Posterscope and Vizeum.
