Will Isobar recapture its creative-technical mojo?

AGENCY REPORT CARD: The Dentsu agency known for its creative technical wizardry held its own business-wise in 2020. But has it lost a step? And how does it fit into a rapidly changing Dentsu?


Isobar is set to play a key role within a vastly more integrated Dentsu, and 2020 was a year of transforming for that future. We see a lot of power inherent in Isobar's expertise, and it launched an impressive new content play in 2020. But we also see signs of concern over its once magical melding of creativity and technology.

How did we grade Dentsu's experience-minded agency network? Our full Agency Report Card on Isobar—including the overall grade plus a detailed analysis and scores for management; innovation; clients and business; creativity; and people and diversity—is available only to Campaign Asia-Pacific members.
