A Vancouver-founded web and digital marketing agency is going global after being acquired by Thinkingbox, an interactive production studio.

Thinkingbox announced on Tuesday that it had acquired AntiSocial Solutions, a leader in social media strategy and production with offices in Vancouver and Toronto.

This marks Thinkingbox’s third acquisition since December 2019. Previously, they acquired Welikesmall, a US-based creative agency, and Aarra, a New York-based digital management agency.

AntiSocial will continue to operate under its own name but explains that they’ll work with Thinkingbox teams in Vancouver, Toronto, Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and New York City.

In the past, AntiSocial has worked with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, Red Bull, Subway Restaurants, Western Family, OpenTable, and the Vancouver Canucks.

Thinkingbox also announced that Daryl Louie, AntiSocial’s co-founder and CEO, will transition into the role of head of strategy for Thinkingbox.

“Alex and I are excited to broaden our horizons and continue focusing on creating work that impacts the social media marketing industry,” said Louie in a written statement.

The AntiSocial team consists of over 30 employees, including social media strategists, media managers, developers, and content creators.
