US-based insight firm LRW Group has acquired visual communications agency Killer Infographics, to build on its own storytelling capabilities. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Killer designs visual content strategies across a range of media, to help its clients 'speak visually' to the most relevant audiences. Co-founded in 2010 by CEO Amy Balliett, its services include motion graphics, interactive experiences, print design, data visualization and infographics. The company will continue to be based at its Seattle, Washington headquarters and will receive executive guidance from Kelton Global, one of LRW's portfolio companies under which it will operate.
LRW Group CEO Dave Sackman (pictured) comments: 'Killer Infographics has proven itself to be one of the best storytellers in the visual communication space. Ever since the company popped up on our radar, we've been in awe of its ability to translate the most complex data stories into clear, informative and creative visuals. There's no doubt that our clients will be as impressed with their fresh graphic interpretations as we are'.
