Summary of the year so far: "Continuing on 2013's strong momentum, we’re delivering exciting work, welcoming exceptional talent, strengthening our offering and consolidating existing client business. On a new business front, we began working with JP Morgan Private Bank on digital strategy and thought leadership. We’re also handling a content-focused project for a well-known Reckitt Benckiser brand, with the work launching later this year.
Hiring has continued apace to meet the increasing workload. We’ve bolstered a number of key and thriving specialisms throughout the agency - such as data analytics, technology, UX and content production - bringing in top talent from numerous agencies and disciplines.
The positive effect has been felt. So far this year we’ve launched several innovative projects for clients, including our recent iSPIES app for Sainsbury’s, multi-platform development and social media activity for Dulux, a major new hub for AkzoNobel Trade, a global content-led campaign for Malibu and also a social video drive for Rockstar. Our first open Hack Festival in July was a huge success and we’re already planning more.
We’re working hard, getting things done and enjoying it. With so much in production right now, the second half of the year promises to be red hot."
