Richa Goswami, Asia Pacific head of digital at Johnson & Johnson, confirmed the appointment of AKQA.

"Building on our global healthcare experience, we're delighted to have been selected by Johnson & Johnson Baby," added AKQA Shanghai managing director David Miller.

The last piece of work in public memory for Johnson's Baby in China, from Nim and Vitamine, was a multi-format campaign called "Pump It Forward" that urged businesses to provide a private place for breastfeeding moms to express milk.
