Summary of the year so far: "It feels like we’ve had a good start to the year. In the last six months we’ve won the two biggest pitches in the industry, Dixons and Smart Meters. The investments we made in content talent last year are coming to fruition; from Sainsbury’s to Doritos, Foot Locker to Pepsi and we’re not only creating top class content but managing the channels it sits on. Additionally, we have been appointed to lead strategic oversight, content creation and digital activation for Guinness globally, as well as being appointed to handle all of its digital advertising, web and mobile development and content creation in Western Europe without a pitch. The succession management in our creative department has bedded in as well as we’d hoped and Alex and Adrian have hired loads of incredible new talent – including Mike Crowe and Rob Messeter and Thiago de Moraes. We’ve produced some work we’re really proud of and picked up a wheelbarrow of awards for both creativity and effectiveness. It includes the Most Awarded Agency at Marketing Society; Most Awarded Agency for Social Strategy at WARC and Creative Agency of the Year at Creative Circle and Creative Review."
