Half Term Reports 2014: Gravity Road

Campaign asked the ad and media industry to rate and summarise their performance so far in 2014, ahead of our School Reports for 2015. Here's how Gravity Road view the first six months of their year.

Score (self-awarded): 8

Number of staff: 41

New Business/Billings: Not supplied 

Summary of the year so far: "Halfway through the year we hadn’t hit our third birthday, but a look at how we’ve grown suggests we’ve already moved up to big school. Much growth has come organically, with new projects on Sainsbury’s and new Bacardi brands including Grey Goose globally.

New wins included Mondelez, where our Corden Lip Syncing film triumphing around the Brits. Headlines screamed Cadbury’s Won The Brits. The social was so strong it became a digital out-of-home campaign. Recent wins include a strategic and creative win on ITV, with the first project on itv2. Both of these wins were unpitched. More to come.

Creative highpoints include this year’s BAFTA Film Awards win, the first ever film win for an agency. This was followed by a Webby Award and we are also shortlisted for Big awards and a host of others.

The launch in April of Jamie Oliver’s Drinks Tube for Bacardi shows our work transcending comms to get to bigger business opportunities. The partnership is a fundamental business venture that reaches beyond YouTube across cookery books & magazines right through to new product development and Bacardi prominence in restaurants. "
