Recreation acquires Oakland-based shop Arson.

ArsonBlackWe’re thrilled to announce that REC has reached across the bay to acquire independent Oakland ad agency Arson. The pairing adds even more experience and capabilities to our growing team.

“I started Recreation because I knew great brands needed to tell great stories in new, interesting and exciting ways,” said REC founder Todd Ransick. “In Arson, we’re getting smart, highly creative pros who will help grow our agency and take our clients to the next level.”

“Since they started about the same time we did, I’ve always paid attention to, and admired, their work from over here in the east bay. Todd and everyone at Recreation are building something we really want to be a part of. I’m thrilled to join forces with them,” said Arson co-founder/Creative Director, Matt Morin, who will oversee the Recreation creative department.

Founded in 2013 and headquartered in downtown Oakland, Arson built a strong client roster of both local and national brands such as Advent, Gigwalk, Sunrun, Group Delphi and Prospect Sierra.
