New business / billings: Nokia Creative Global

Summary of the year so far: We’ve pushed out great work, kicking off with ground-breaking TA Live ads. We followed these with our ‘clever’ Step Up film for The Army, portraying a soldier’s life through their boots. From the award winning Serious Play ‘Mint’ and the epic Legendry Journey films for its sponsorship of the Hong Kong 7s and the British & Irish Lions, to the standout Platypus ad for First Direct, our creative on HSBC continues to be the category leader. We have been described as an ‘Agency on Fire’ and through our work with Ambrosia, Hovis, Blue Dragon and OXO we have been described as one that has found its ‘Inner foodie’ for intelligent understanding of what lies behind consumer food choices. And Ian Darby recently said clients should give agencies like us their business. Nokia was obviously listening as it awarded us its global creative business. We have also made significant hires including Head of Planning Neil Godber from BBH and Head Broadcast Laurence Barber from Mother.
