Summary of the year so far: "At R/GA London, 2014 has been a special year for us so far. We've piled on new clients, hired lots of talented people and were the most awarded UK digital agency at Cannes. We’ve also looked to partner with start-ups through an industry-leading accelerator partnership with Techstars. All this, off the back of some great work we’ve launched, including Google World Cup, Heineken @wherenext and a stream of ground-breaking work for Beats by Dr Dre. Already for Beats this year we’ve invented a product to create a whole new culture around the Pill speaker, we’ve won the big TV prize at the Clio Sports Awards for our work for Wireless headphones and we’ve launched a Spotify music subscription service in Beats Music, which was reportedly the backbone of Apple's largest acquisition yet. All this before we made a star-studded, emotive, five minute Beats World Cup film 'The Game before the Game'. This combination of hardcore products and epic storytelling is the ultimate example of our Say/Do brand building philosophy and we showcased it in a keynote at Cannes with Beats. 2014 for R/GA London: telling stories, building products, creating value – we think we’re carving out a unique space for ourselves on the global stage."
