Artnet.com Selects Mad Dogs & Englishmen as Agency

Artnet.com, an online marketplace for original works of art, has selected Mad Dogs & Englishmen as the agency of record for its $3 million to $5 million million advertising account.

The company had been evaluating several alternatives, including using an interactive agency.

“We ultimately went with Mad Dogs because of the strength of their strategic approach to our business and their willingness to immerse themselves in the world of our brand, says Dan Wald, vice president of marketing for artnet.com.

The companies have not yet announced plans for a campaign.

Artnet.com gives Internet users access to 800 galleries, 20,000 works of art, and over 6,000 artists. The company competes with Art.com, Guild.com, and PaintingsDirect.com, and, to lesser degree, with auction sites like eBay.com and Sothebys.com.
