East coast sales will be handled by Uncle Lefty.In a statement, Kleinman said of the launch: "We want to bring the same ethos we have in London to the US; a small company delivering premier quality, creative, award winning work, whilst making the process pleasant and collaborative."
In addition to Kleinman and Ledwidge, other directors on its roster include Andy McLeod, the former executive creative director and founding partner of Fallon London, plus Ivan Bird, Steve Cope, Pete Riski, Austen Humphries and Sara Dunlop.
Ledwidge was previously represented at Smuggler in the U.S. while Kleinman and the rest of the Rattling Stick team were repped in the U.S. at Epoch Films.
