Summary of the year so far: Our best year ever (admittedly it’s only our second). We have a suspicion we’re the youngest ever UK company to win a Cannes Lion, and that was just one of several awards that our work for Huffington Post has picked up so far this year. This has led to us being rewarded with an expanded role across AOL’s portfolio of brands. Elsewhere, we’ve delivered the new global campaign for Bombay Sapphire, whilst also launching year two of their Imagination Series – an innovative short film project with Adrien Brody & Tribeca. Other areas of client growth include a retained role for Sainsbury’s, leading their content strategy. Our promise has always been a broader point of view & skillset. This continues to be evidenced by our own IP and projects - we’ve just delivered our Channel 4 comedy show, The Anti-Social Network, whilst our YouTube channel business is now launched and growing.

Awards won so far in 2013: "Cannes Lion (Silver), Best Use of Screen The Digitals, Best Campaign Marketing Week Engage Awards, Media Brand of the Year (Huffington Post) Drum Marketing Awards, Digital Strategy of the Year Drum Marketing awards, Integrated Campaign of the Year Upcoming shortlists M&M Global DADI, 2 nominations"
