Connecting Plots’ strategic director Tim Collier said: “I’m so pleased to be working with [yellow tail].
“Their business changed the face of Australian wine when it launched, and their brand continues to be an excellent example of what can be achieved when you subvert the norms of a category.
“We can’t wait to sink our teeth into the unique creative challenges they face and to start moving the dial on their business results.”
[yellow tail] global marketing manager Anna Czarnocka said: “We are excited to be working with Connecting Plots on the [yellow tail] social strategy, content and media for Australia.
