Half-Term Reports 2013: Lida

Campaign asked the ad and media industry to rate and summarise their performance so far in 2013, ahead of our School Reports for 2014. Here's how Lida view the first six months of their year.

Score (self-awarded): 8

Number of staff: 150

New business / billings: £2m (New business)

Summary of the year so far: "It’s been a strong start for us here at LIDA. Pitch wise, we’ve won two we can’t talk about as well as RBS Private Banking and a GPS direct roster place, also picking up the first brief in May. The pitch opportunities have continued to roll in, with Land Rover, comparethemarket.com and O2’s Business Marketing Services imminent. We’ve also produced some stand-out work. Our Miscarriage Association work could arguably be the most untargeted, targeted campaign ever. We’ve inspired IKEA Family members to make more of their gardens, with an interactive weather forecast personalised to their actual address. And for O2, we got customers asking a cat to decide what they should do next. People-wise, Lou Whitcombe and Victoria Fox have come back into the fold as COO and MD respectively. And we’ve added talented new blood to the LIDA board."
