On the back of substantial new business won in Europe at the end of 2020, Rapt Creative has opened satellite offices in London and Kiev.
Rapt was appointed by the Export and Licence division of Molson Coors Beverage Company (MCB) as the experiential, activation and concept creative agency for Miller Genuine Draft, Coors Lager and Staropromen in Europe, Africa and parts of Asia.
The agency's presence in Europe will be overseen by the agency’s head of strategy and consumer insight, Genevieve van Vuuren, based in London.

“We are really pleased with the MCB win, as it gives us a toe in the door for future work in Europe and Asia,” said Rapt MD Garreth van Vuuren.
“The agency was founded on the philosophy of being the ‘anti-agency agency’ and flipped the way client-agency relationships history work … a philosophy rooted in wanting to do cool shit with cool people.
“I’m confident South Africa has among best creative talent in the world and, with our unique business model, we hope to give the world a taste of Mzansi in their day-to-day purchasing decisions,” he said.
