ODD has been tasked with developing an integrated global campaign, which will roll out across TV(TBC), press, online and social.

ODD demonstrated an enthusiasm for the brand’s ambition and showcased a concept that will take us in a new direction, and one that we’re excited to pursue.”

Nick Stickland, Executive Creative Director, ODD added, “River Island asked us to push the brand creatively, so we did – and we’re very much looking forward to working with the team to bring the campaign to life.”
