Summary of the year so far: "A busy start to the advertising academic year in which we made significant hirings, produced great creative work across a diverse range of clients and welcomed some brilliant new brands through the door. The arrival of Richard Dunn as CSO and Pip Hulbert as Managing Partner added considerable firepower to our senior team, while our CCO Matt Batten has quickly made his presence felt in the reinvigorated senior team led by Mel Cruickshank. Our clients seemed to think so too, because as well as winning new business such as Coke, Dreams and Royal Mail, it was pleasing to also enjoy organic growth from existing clients like Microsoft. A particular creative highlight was an exciting multi-platform campaign for Microsoft, the Official Technology Supplier to the Lions Tour, which also allowed us to show the breadth of our offering. While we look back with much pride, expect more to come through the rest of the year. "
