Summary of the year so far: "2014 has already been really quite good. We finally made it to the top of Campaign’s new business league table with wins on First Great Western, Homepride, Qatar Financial Centre and Microsoft, and we've made some great work. Momondo Friend Compass. Batchelors Supermums. "Building a Greater West" for First Great Western. Subway Sturridge and some nice posters for the Cannes Lions festival. We were awarded the UK's foremost Cannes Lions in mobile - a silver for Friend Compass. We launched McCann Live, our live stream social periscope and rigged up a lie-detector in the office to uphold our Truth Well Told mantra. Culture feels good and we’ve made some great new hires. Sergio Lopez, Rob Smith, Nat Hill, Tom Bedwell and Tom Wong. We're still exploring strange new worlds and boldly going where we've never been before."
