Dye Holloway Murray, the start-up agency, has been appointed to handle the advertising for Sk:n, a network of clinics specialising in skin and body treatments. The appointment was made by marketing director Gemma Reilly without a pitch.
The agency is now working on an appraisal of the brand, which offers cosmetic and laser treatments as well as skincare products. The Sk:n clinics are backed by the private equity fund Graphite Capital.
Justin Holloway, the strategic partner of Dye Holloway Murray says Sk:n is a “high potential brand in a fast-growing market” and that the agency will work with the brand to “maximise its story and presentation”.
Holloway Murray Dye was founded at the start of this year by Campbell Doyle Dye founder Dave Dye, Jorian Murray, previously the managing director of DDB London, and Justin Holloway, previously a planner at DDB. The trio worked together at Publicis in the early 1990s.
It offers integrated advertising solutions, outsourcing to specialist agencies when necessary.
It recently made its first digital hiring when it poached the creative team of David Goss and Phoebe Coulton from agency 20:20.
