Newell Brands Chooses POSSIBLE to Lead Web Strategy

By Erik Oster 

Newell Brands Inc. appointed global digital agency POSSIBLE to lead its online strategy.

The agency will be tasked with designing a digital experience that creates global consistency while also staying true to individual brands such as Paper Mate, Sharpie and Graco. POSSIBLE has already begun working on the initial phase of the effort, with the creation of initial brand sites.

“We are honoured to work with Newell Brands to help create a world-class experience that connects with consumers,” POSSIBLE president, Americas Jason Burby said in a statement. “We are passionate about delivering digital products that make a measurable difference. Combining high-consideration baby products from a brand like Graco with high-volume brands like Sharpie or PaperMate is a fantastic challenge.”


The appointment follows Newell Brands transferring global creative duties for brands including Rubbermaid, Sharpie, Paper Mate, Calphalon, Irwin and Lenox from BBH to J. Walter Thompson New York without a review back in May. According to Kantar Media, Newell Brands spent around $91.6 million on measured media last year.
