Summary of the year so far: "Jam’s been busy delivering a diverse portfolio of exciting work. We brought van Nistelrooy back with a massive online PR stunt to promote Xbox One and FIFA 14, unleashed ‘The Pod’ – a social advocacy program we built for Nescafe, launched the first pay-by-picture pop-up restaurant for Birdseye and created a new brand perspective with a series of videos for Samsung Galaxy NotePRO. 

In between delivering for our clients we’ve managed to win some significant new business from National Trust, E.ON and Samsung. 

And we’ve added some new brains to our partnership team; hiring Alice Driscoll from Pd3 and Matt Hardisty from Mother.

Not that the good folk of Jam haven’t found time for extra-curricular activity: Janelle from our creative team was selected for the Young Lions Creative Academy (the only UK representative!). A hundred Wallys marched to Thorpe Park for our summer party. And a team of Jammers won £21K on BBC One’s Break the Safe!

Finally, we’re very proud to have created some amazing pro bono work for Check One Two to raise awareness of testicular cancer and have another big charity project in the pipeline – watch this space! "
