Headspace continues agency hunt: ‘we’re still looking for a Melbourne agency to work with us pro bono’

Youth depression charity Headspace, which found itself without an ad agency following the closure of DraftFCB Melbourne, is still looking for a replacement after calling a pitch more than seven weeks ago.

A long-list of thirteen agencies was drawn up in mid-September, with an emphasis on finding a Melbourne agency or agency with a Melbourne office.

The charity’s head of corporate affairs Elisabeth Tuckey told Mumbrella: “We came close with a couple of agencies, but we’re still looking for the right fit. As a not for profit organisation, we’re after an agency that’s willing to work with us pro bono.”

“We can pay production costs and contribute a small margin. The other criteria is the agency needs to be Melbourne based, or at least have a presence in Melbourne,” she said.

DraftFCB Melbourne folded in early September following the loss of lynchpin client Honda.
