Anomaly Takes Over Coke Business From Wieden + Kennedy

Anomaly has won creative duties for Coke in the U.S., marking the agency’s latest piece of business from Coca-Cola, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

The agency, owned by MDC Partners, won the Diet Coke account from Droga5 in 2016. The following year, it picked up Minute Maid, ending the orange juice brand’s longtime partnership with Doner. Moving forward, it will work on Coca-Cola’s classic Coke brand as well.

The move ends Wieden + Kennedy Portland’s partnership with Coke, which won the brand 15 years ago. However, Wieden + Kennedy’s New York office works on Coca-Cola brands including Sprite and Vitamin Water. The independent agency’s London office has also worked with the company in recent years. It’s unclear if these relationships have been impacted by the change.

Wieden + Kennedy did not respond to requests for comment, and Anomaly declined to comment. A Coca-Cola spokesperson said that the company “does not comment on agency assignments,” but said “both Anomaly and Wieden + Kennedy are both very active within our current Coca-Cola Company agency roster.
