Summary of the year so far: "A busy and successful six months for SapientNitro has seen it win 11 pieces of new business including Barclays, Kao, AXA, Aviva and Moet Hennessy Europe. SapientNitro brought the biggest-name storytellers – James Cameron, Vivienne Westwood, Steven Levitt and Heston Blumenthal – to London in May for its iEX event, to explore the evolution of storytelling. Significant work includes the relaunch of McLaren Automotive’s global website – a video-rich experience of the McLaren brand. ‘Get Cash’, the RBS app that enables customers without their cash cards to access money from ATMs, won SapientNitro the UK’s only Gold Mobile Lion at Cannes. In July, a new Ladbrokes campaign broke, including five TV ads, featuring Tiziano Crudeli in new character as the ‘Oddsfather’. SapientNitro concluded a strong half-year with recognition for its UK leadership: BIMA inducted SVP and European MD Nigel Vaz into the ‘Digital Hall of Fame’, while Chief Creative Officer Malcolm Poynton made BIMA’s ‘Hot 100’.
