Deal provides clients full-service creative and media buying capabilities

MIAMI – May 25, 2016 – rbb Communications, Champion of Breakout BrandsTM, enhanced its creative resources and breadth of integrated marketing services with the acquisition of OutOfTheBlue, a Miami-based advertising and creative design agency. OutOfTheBlue develops effective advertising campaigns and branding strategies for clients in the financial, hospitality, cruise, health care, retail and restaurant industries. This is the second acquisition completed by rbb this year.

“Today’s brands seek content that not only delivers compelling messages but creates emotional connections,” said Lisa Ross, president of rbb Communications. “This acquisition complements rbb’s existing creative marketing resources to ensure our campaigns deliver both.”

Founded in 2001, OutOfTheBlue has a proven track record of creating powerful creative content and delivering innovative and effective advertising campaigns across multiple platforms including print, broadcast, online and outdoor. In addition, OutOfTheBlue’s media buying acumen completes rbb’s capabilities roster as a fully integrated communications agency.

“As more clients look to have one agency to manage their overall marketing communications, we felt it would be a win-win to become part of rbb’s award-winning team,” said Renny Tirador, executive creative director of OutOfTheBlue. “Our employee and results-driven cultures align very well, and our team is eager to work with rbb’s national clients.”

OutOfTheBlue joins rbb’s family of brands, including the recently added digital marketing firm SpiderBoost Communications; Gibbs-rbb, a consumer/food product marketing agency; and Digital Park, an internal division offering integrated digital strategy, social marketing management and content creation to rbb clients.

Details of the transaction were not disclosed.
