Summary of the year so far: "The first six months of 2014 have been hard work (as they always are in an ambitious small agency up against the big boys) but the results have been more than worth it. Now into our third year as a planning and buying agency we continue to deliver commercial growth, great work and where we can, positive challenge & change to the industry. In billings terms our modest prediction for 2014 is 100% growth on 2013 with £40M+, new business success has shown we can compete in most sectors up against the bigger agencies RateSetter (Finance), Wren Living (Retail), Kopparberg (Alcohol) and Zoopla Property Group (ecommerce) and last but not least, our work and creative output has shown we can produce ideas without limits – a style magazine for Kopparberg, a station talkover on TalkSPORT for History and a commended digital campaign for Dr Martens. 

All this in a year when we stood apart and challenged the status quo by taking outdoor buying in-house with a partnership with Talon Outdoor providing our clients with a faster, flexible and more integrated solution.

The rest of 2014 looks even more promising…"
