Enigma strengthens its creative ranks with new Disciples

Here at Enigma, we never do things in halves. Especially when it comes to our creative product.

So, in a huge show of commitment to creating world-class work, Enigma has acquired internationally awarded creative agency, Disciple.

Founders, Peter Buckley and Tim Brown, who have created some of Australia’s favourite and most awarded campaigns for brands like Tooheys, Hilux, Subaru, SunRice, Toyota and Olympus, joined the Enigma team today.

Enigma’s Founder Lisa Sutton Gardner said the agency was on a determined growth path and was looking to bolster its creative offering for clients.

“Pete and Tim are a highly awarded team, but more impressive to Enigma is that their work demonstrates a genuine connection to the hard work and determination of all Australians, and that is what Enigma is about,” Lisa said.

“We are proud to work with clients all over metropolitan and regional Australia and the Disciple team has a lot of value to add for those clients.

“Enigma has enjoyed significant growth in the past few years and we attribute this to our strong connection to Australia’s heartland and our no-nonsense approach to growing our clients’ success. Pete and Tim share this approach and bring a level of thinking that’s fresh, exciting and moves the needle.”

Following the acquisition by Enigma, Pete and Tim will now take on Executive Creative Director roles at the agency.

Tim Brown said Enigma was a great Australian agency with a unique offering.

“Enigma is strong in both regional and metro markets. They have an insight into the hearts and minds of every Australian like nobody else,” Tim said.

“The thinking is high quality and so are the people. It’s a great fit for us.

“Being acquired by an independent Australian owned agency was important to us. For our clients it offers increased expertise and more diverse capabilities. We can’t wait to roll our sleeves up and do great things across the group.”

Enigma now has its sights set on expansion into the Brisbane market in 2021.
