NEW YORK, March 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- King, makers of Candy Crush, the top grossing mobile gaming franchise in U.S. app stores1, has appointed creative agency The Romans as its retained consumer PR agency. The appointment is the result of a competitive pitch process which began in December, 2022.

The Romans

The Romans will be responsible for the brand's consumer PR efforts, leading the charge on creative campaigns, events, stunts, and ongoing press office activities, with a focus on its key markets in the US and UK.

Of the appointment, Louise Ramsden, Brand Communications Lead at King said,

"We were looking for a global agency with an implicit understanding of gaming, tech, and most importantly, culture. The response The Romans delivered showed they not only had a deep understanding of our audience, but they also knew how to reach new audiences around the world via high-impact creative campaigning. We're at a pivotal point with the brand turning 10 years old, and our consumers demanding more engagement and entertainment than ever. We not only want to serve them by providing that on the platform, but IRL too, and that's what we plan on delivering with The Romans - high-impact initiatives at every turn. We want to disrupt the category in a distinctly Candy Crush Saga way, while celebrating our players. 2023 is just the beginning."

Sarah Jenkins, Partner at The Romans New York said,

"King is the exact type of client we're looking for as we continue our agency growth and we couldn't be more honored to have them select The Romans as their creative partner for the Candy Crush franchise. Their team is dynamic, bold and eager to work collaboratively to inject the brand back into the cultural zeitgeist. We're thrilled to hit the ground running with them and look forward to showing up with some sweet surprises for consumers, while generating the buzz Candy Crush deserves as one of the most beloved worldwide mobile game franchises being played today."

The account will be led on a day-to-day basis in the US by Katherine Espinosa, Vice President, and in Europe, by Kate Brazier, Director, who joined The Romans from her role as Global Growth Director at Grayling in 2021.
