Portland-based creative studio King/Coyle has been acquired by Huge, which sees Ian Coyle and Duane King join the agency.

“Part of Huge’s mission is to create a home for the best design in the world,” said Joe Stewart, global creative director at Huge. “Duane and Ian are two of the best designers working today. We’ve been fans of these guys for a long time and now we’re incredibly proud to be able to call them colleagues.”

A statement from Coyle and King added: “Creating a design innovation lab with a proven industry leader like Huge is an exciting honour. Together, we believe we can help shape the future of digital design.”
