Summary of the year so far: "2013 got off to a flying start following our Marketing Digital Agency of the Year win the previous December. We celebrated by bringing a unicorn to Brick Lane (again), and the resulting film ‘Cool Unicorn Bruv’ became a huge hit on social media, at film festivals and even on TV, clocking up well over half a million views. In February, we announced our merger with Digitas to form DigitasLBi. Since then, we’ve started working with some major new clients (including Carlsberg and Danone), won a raft of awards and launched some exciting new initiatives with brands including Sony Mobile and Honda. We’ve also made some major hires including our Chief Talent Officer Sophie Ling, who joined to help develop our unique culture, and our Chief Media Officer Ed Ling, who came to us from MEC to help grow and evolve our media offering. As part of our quest to help our clients transform themselves for the digital age we’ve continued to invest in new products and services including our social business design practice, set up last year to help brands organise themselves for change.
