Summary of the year so far: "Last year we invested heavily in our people, our processes and our services, ensuring the agency was future-proofed and on top of its game. So far in 2014, we have reaped back our investment with a string of high-profile new account wins including the world’s biggest PC manufacturer, Lenovo, global technology leader, Epson, and prepared food giant, Florette.
Testament to our two-time Platinum CPD programme, our work has jumped to the next level with more innovative media planning and inter-agency collaboration than ever before: this is evident in our work for ENO’s opening night of Cellini with live tweets from social up-starts, That Lot; our award-winning, DOOH campaign for Tate Britain where the media displayed reflects the prevailing weather and traffic conditions; and finally our work on Lenovo’s 2014 branding campaign, where we teamed up with Posterscope to overlay OOH media with EE’s new mData module – re-writing the way planners approach OOH.
Finally the way the agency operates has changed with new strategy, activation and client servicing departments and a strengthened management team, making our independent shop quicker, slicker and smarter."
