New LA story for Ralph Creative

Award-winning creative agency starts new chapter with the opening of Los Angeles studio as part of international expansion strategy

Creative agency Ralph has opened a new Los Angeles office to create a third home after London and New York.

Headed up by Ralph’s Co-Founder Iain Barrington-Light, the LA office will serve new and existing West Coast based brands, creating more capacity to expand Ralph’s Creative and Social Media strategy and content offerings.

The office will also focus on creating short-form and long-form high level video and motion graphics content for clients, including Sony Music, Twentieth Century Fox, and Square Enix.

Ralph is also working closely with the social and marketing teams at Netflix across an increasing number of shows and initiatives including Black Mirror, House Of Cards, their new original comedy platform “Netflix Is a Joke” and the upcoming second season of Stranger Things.

Recent work on Stranger Things involved creating #StrangerThursdays which encouraged existing and new fans to rewatch the first season and saw the Ralph team creating Stranger Things versions of classic movie posters.

The opening of the studio furthers Ralph’s expansion, which saw the company establish a New York presence in 2009. The team on the East Coast will continue to focus on social media and entertainment marketing, while the London office remains committed to creating exciting brand campaigns, encompassing live events and immersive experiences spanning TV, digital and outdoor.

“This is an important milestone for the team at Ralph and gives us a great opportunity to work closer with our existing clients and some new studios in Los Angeles,” said Co-Founder Iain Barrington-Light. “We’re currently recruiting some exciting talent, and hitting the ground running with our shiny, new West Coast home.”

Co-Founder Chris Hassell added: “It’s been a great year for Ralph, with highlights including work with Sony HQ on the Lost In Music campaign, award nominations for The Chainsmokers’ Paris VR experience, and exciting new work with Netflix, Twitter, Square Enix and more. We’re on a roll and whilst offices lead with certain offerings we are now able to offer a fully cohesive offering around the globe.”
