Summary of the year so far: "As with any one-year-old, the year so far has been one of fast-paced development. Already we have produced some of our best ever work for clients like Emirates, IHG, Philips, Ribena and Vodafone. We’ve also won a healthy mix of new business from Bacardi, Heineken, MetLife and Mondelez. We’ve focused heavily on training, with bi-monthly inspiration weeks looking at everything from innovations through to Social Shopping. We’ve launched "Leonardo", our unique way of working which enables us to develop effective creative ideas which change behaviour. A bunch of awards plus a top 50 place in WARC’s Smartest Worldwide marketing campaigns helped to elevate our creative and strategic reputation. We're lucky enough to be working with Nanna Kay as part of the MAA and StartUp Britain "Win an Agency" initiative. We’ve continued to strengthen the team, especially in Creative and Digital, with the appointments of Daniel Hennessy to chief creative officer, Georgia Barretta as head of design, as well as Adrian Nicholls as head of digital. And we just kicked off the Office Refurb as we look to totally overhaul the space at Westbourne Terrace over the next year."
