Summary of the year so far: "After our best year to date in 2013, we started 2014 like we meant to go on, with Samsung consolidating its UK business into iris.

Since then we’ve been appointed by Guinness, Club Wembley, J&B (as a result of our growing relationship with Diageo globally), Nescafe and Sol – in addition to developing new campaigns for our existing clients including Britvic, Mini, Domino’s, Philips, Adidas and Barclays.  

We expanded our global footprint with the launch of three new offices in Munich, Chicago and Sao Paulo, following the acquisition of local market leaders Pepper Global and Router – taking us to 17 offices worldwide.  

We’ve hauled in 20 awards this year, from Cannes Lions to MAA Agency of the Year, made Squash’d in space with Oscar winners Framestore, created a match in heaven between Domino’s and Tinder, supported Adidas in Brazil to become the most talked about brand at the World Cup – and much more. 

Our rapidly expanding team in London continues to go from strength to strength – as Chris Baylis joined at the beginning of the year from Tribal DDB, Max Wright as planning director from Kindred and more recently, Leila Bartlam as Head of TV, Film and Content from Havas Worldwide."
