DDB Group Australia CEO Andrew Little said: “We have been working with Dulux via British Paints for several years now and are thrilled to be expanding our relationship to work across their suite of iconic Australian brands. It has been an incredible year for DDB Melbourne, even with the headwinds of COVID-19, and we’re looking forward to driving greater impact for Dulux in the future.”
