Summary of the year so far: "We’re fast approaching our one-year anniversary in the Publicis family and have a lot of work, talent, growth and initiatives to celebrate.

This year has seen us put BAFTA fanbots on the red carpet for EE, launch online the Cara Delevingne collaboration with Mulberry, and unveil HereEast, an epicenter for the next generation of entrepreneurs and makers, to the global digital community.

This month, we will be taking EE to the races in a new campaign and in October, we’ll be launching an exciting new project for Bacardi.

We’re also proud to welcome a new client, HBO, and announce new and diverse talent at Poke, including Tom Baylis from Elvis to head up account management and Bogdana Butnar from Google as Senior Planner.

We continue our dedication to giving back, evidenced through:
Nick and Nic’s ongoing involvement as co-chairs of the LOVIE awards, which recognise the very best from the European internet community.
Our partnership with Hackney Community College and the launch of Tech City Apprenticeships initiative last year, which continues to grow strong in mentoring and molding the next generation of digital talent.
Launching an innovation campus for HereEast at this year’s SXSW.

We’ve also been enjoying increased integration with Publicis Chemistry and Publicis London, working together with clients including UBS and EE.
