Half Term Reports 2014: Hometown

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 Hometown view the first six months of their year.

Score (self-awarded): 7

Number of staff: 21

billings: £2.1 million 

Summary of the year so far: "We made great strides in 2014, with new clients and lots of work we're proud of.

So far this year, we've launched the new A380 for Qatar Airways, shot two brand films for the launch of the new £20bn Hamad International Airport in Doha, hosted the first ever 4D live World Cup broadcast for ITV, and created our second global campaign for the world's most famous watch brand.

We've launched a new internal digital platform for Cisco, which is being rolled out across the world - pairing sales teams with personalised and curated web content on mobile platforms - and have helped Bupa communicate their new brand strategy via an interactive web experience. We're also bringing Chad Strider (the world's best walker) back for his second global campaign.

We're happy to have forged new relationships with global media powerhouse Fremantle - helping them launch a global campaign to celebrate Neighbours' 30th birthday, and are working with Bupa UK on an enchanting interactive video. We're also launching Rakuten, Japan's leading commerce platform, to the UK with a nationwide launch later this year.

We're continuing to create work that sets us apart as an agency, and whilst we're not getting carried away, we're really pleased with where the agency has got to."
