Sun Drops Lowe Lintas
Page 1 of 1
The move came as a result of Lowe Lintas's recent print ads for Sun competitor Dell, which poked fun at the "We're the dot in .com" campaign Lowe Lintas had created earlier for Sun.
The two companies were "a natural choice to assume the lead advertising role for Sun," said Sun vice president of brand marketing Tracey Stout.
For the past two years, the San Francisco-based Tonic 360 has handled all of Sun's interactive work. The agency, which works only with technology and dot-com companies, will share the new offline work in partnership with the New York office of J. Walter Thompson, and its interactive unit, @JWT.
The account change, while a blow to Lowe Lintas, is mitigated somewhat by last week's win of ISP InterNAP Network Services' $25 million business.
