The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) has appointed content creation agencies The Nutgraf and Think Tank Studio to undertake its editorial, copywriting, copyediting, research and infographic design services for a year, with the option to extend for another.
This followed a tender which was called on 19 June 2017, which saw a total of 35 agencies vying for the account, according to Gebiz. Among the list of agencies included Ogilvy & Mather Singapore, Allison + Partners Singapore, King Content Singapore, TILT, Priority Consultants and Thomson Reuters Asia.
The Nutgraf specialises in content, communications and coaching.
