Content agency ONE TWO FOUR, which acquired events agency Rocket Science in 2010, has rebranded to bring its three businesses – Twofour Digital, Twofour Arabia and Rocket Science – together under one name.

The agency, which already has offices in London, Plymouth and Philadelphia, plans to expand in the US, Asia and Europe and to double the size of the business in terms of turnover in the next three to five years. In 2013, the the company turned over £19m, 24% of which came from its events division. 

New York, Singapore and Hong Kong have been identified as key growth areas. The agency also plans to grow its Brussels-based office. 

The agency's events arm currently works with Skoda and Virgin Startup. Other clients across the business include Levis, Sony, British Heart Foundation, Yahoo!, Audi, Volkswagen, Ogilvy Entertainment, Babcock, Carnival, AQA and the BBC. 

Speaking at a launch party at RSA Vaults in London last night (21 October), ONE TWO FOUR's chief executive Mark Hawkins told C&IT: "In 2013, we restructured the business and grew in terms of profit and turnover and will continue to grow this year.

"We rebranded because it felt natural to bring everyone together under one banner with one focus to come up with creative propositions for our clients to help them connect to their audiences through a combination of events, social, digital, video and TV programmes.

"It is important to grow our global footprint to service our global clients. We will look to grow organically, but also through acquisitions and joint ventures."
