Summary of the year so far: "So far this year we’ve had some great results.

For Royal Mail our integrated b2b campaign showing how ‘Email and DM work better together’ has put them 329% ahead of their annual sales forecast.

We kicked off Gatwick’s new retail offer with a social media campaign, ‘The X-ray Collection.’ Then we followed it up with their summer campaign ‘Tempted Before Take-Off’ - so far there has been a 28% year on year sales increase.

Together with Publicis London, we developed the high-profile launch campaign for Garnier Ultimate Blends resulting in making it the new, no. 1 mass haircare brand.

We celebrated the World Cup with a new pan-European campaign for Visa with 20 lucky winners getting the chance to travel to Brazil with football’s fastest fan, Usain Bolt. 

We made three final films for our 4GEE at Work campaign which has reached 1.4 million views.

Our own results haven’t been bad either. Barratt Homes asked us to create their first brand campaign in over 10 years. We started the year with a great win from Purina. And the focus on new business continued with the appointment of Laura Holme as New Business Director."
