It was the first international agency to establish itself in Brazil. Since it arrived, in 1929, JWT has been responsible for managing the communications of various leading brands in the market.

Interesting, innovative ideas which work seamlessly across various communications channels, and invite people to create their own, personal relationships with the brand.
