Founded in 2008 in Paris, KRDS has been on a rocket-fuelled growth curve, going from 10 to 120 staff and opening seven offices across Europe and Asia.
In early November KRDS co-founder Thomas Jestin got in touch with Gorilla to talk about his agency's latest venture: a worldwide coalition of independent social media agencies assisting one another in establishing an international network of on-the-ground expertise in order to better service multi-national clients.
The Social Media Agencies networK, or SMAK
, is seeking out an agency in every country to be a part of the network. This allows each member to have a direct line of communication with potential partners and affiliates who can provide a local perspective and assist with anything from research and consultation to development and activation.
