The Agency for the Account Director

An independent agency network with a strong presence on the world stage; they refused to take the king’s shilling and sell their soul to a large corporation so their integrity is intact and their creative reputation undiminished; yet their global reach is wide.

This fantastic advertising agency has set fire to the bland creative that’s being churned out by cautious corporates.

They are in the Top 10 because they have sought to be the agitant of the advertising industry rather than just the naughty child taunting its competitors.  

They have stripped away the flummery that a lot of agencies build round themselves and drilled down to the essence of what makes a great idea.  Their thinking has shaken up the industry and they have put creative back into the limelight as opposed to just shining a torch on the process.

All eyes are pointed towards their talented mavericks who spell trouble for the competition and deliver creative awards for their clients.

Pretty exciting stuff if you are brave and want to be creatively disruptive in an edgy agency that produces a magical alchemy
