Summary of the year so far: "Three words sum up our year so far – new, ambitious, unusual. We enticed holidaymakers to ‘Unleash Your Mojo’ in our new brilliantly bold campaign for Virgin Holidays, launching via a Twitter ‘Mojovator’ and culminating in ‘Mojo The Musical’. We invited the world over to our ‘House of Peroni’ to experience the new wave of Italian creativity - a multimedia, experiential project delivered through ongoing digital content and a live, immersive physical residency. And we created 85 films about all sorts of aspects of home moving for NatWest’s new content channel, as well as new TV commercials, masses of digital, press, outdoor, in-branch and social media. We took an increasingly leading role on the international stage with new and very exciting global campaigns for Ballantine’s and Havana Club in development (watch this space). And we were absolutely thrilled to win the international corporate advertising account from BASF, the world’s leading chemical company. And of course we were overjoyed to win a coveted placed on the Government’s new creative roster, one of only ten agencies to do so. The briefs are pouring in."
