Summary of the year so far: "UM London has delivered another strong new business performance through the first half of the year. Fuelled by our Curiosity Works positioning, in total £25m of new clients have been won with reported pitch wins on Coca-Cola Enterprises, Foxy Bingo, Regus, Bridgestone, Budgens, Londis, SportsYapper and Build-a-Bear.

Most recently, following the global loss of Microsoft, we brought our gaming expertise to the fore to win the iconic £5m Rockstar Games account in the UK and Ireland.

We launched a new content and production division, UM Studios, in January. It's extended the services we can deliver for our existing clients by transforming the way we design, craft and deliver content. It's been incredibly successful, having already managed diverse projects for Jack Daniels, H&M, SportsYapper and FSCS, among others.

Microsoft named UM as its Agency of the Year in the UK and we've continued to deliver major awards success with four high profile wins under our belt, including a win at the prestigious Festival of Media.
Recently we've been working on launching fresh thought leadership into the market through our Little Book of Curiosity series, out in October, and have a number of high profile campaigns ready to break."
