Odopod and Nurun: Our Next Big Move

Ten years ago we created a new agency. The idea was pretty simple. We wanted to marry the culture and practices of Silicon Valley startups with those of creative agencies.

Our first assignments and clients were incredibly diverse — from designing software for startups to creating digital campaigns for big brands.

Back then, this made Odopod an anomaly.

It took about nine years longer than we expected but the landscape has changed around us. Now clients seek us out for our unique combination of expertise with software design and brand thinking. Increasingly, they see it as essential for everything from product innovation to marketing.

As a result, we're enjoying the best years in the company's history and producing our best work ever.

Now it's time for us to make our next big move.

For the next ten years, we want to charge ourselves with a new ambition. We want to raise the bar even higher — for the work we do and for the clients we engage.

And we're not doing it alone.

Today, we're officially announcing that Odopod is merging with Nurun, the largest independent digital agency in the world.

This merger gives us the platform we've been looking for — one that enables us to do even more innovative work and to deliver that work anywhere in the world.

Nurun's outstanding technology pedigree will help us innovate across even more platforms. Their international presence and leadership will help us expand into new markets alongside our clients.

Together, Odopod and Nurun have an impressive combination of reach, depth and talent.

We're genuinely excited about the next ten years and are looking forward to starting this new chapter with the Odopod team as well as all of our clients, partners and friends.

    Congratulation to both of you. I'm from Montreal, so I know Nurun for years, and I'm a fan of Odopod creativity. I think the mix will be great.

    I remember when Odopod first started... in the smoldering embers of the dot bomb era. Congrats on the success, and looking forward to seeing more of the same.

Same Team, New Name

It's been thirteen years since we started Odopod.

We've always wanted one thing: to do the best work of our lives. Along the way, we have been joined by an eclectic and exceptionally talented bunch of people who wanted the same thing. Together, we've built a company we love.

Two years ago, Odopod was acquired by Nurun.

The acquisition was a validation of everything we had built. It was also a catalyst for some big changes we wanted to make. We began to tackle bigger, thornier problems and to work all over the world. With Nurun, we've had a series of huge wins and have been producing our best work yet.

That's why we recently decided to retire the Odopod brand, formally adopt Nurun as our name, and take the reins of Nurun's US operations.

We're all still here—same team with the same appetite for great work, only now with different e-mail addresses and more frequent flyer miles. And we're growing, so send your talented friends our way.

Keep an eye out for new work from Nurun. It will be our best yet.

Tim, Dave, Jacquie, JT & Guthrie
