Summary of the year so far: "It's been a busy six months. The highlight has been great work on campaigns such as Vodafone Red+, Land Rover "Can & Will" and "Not so friendly Games" work for the BBC's Commonwealth Games coverage. We also brought together some of the most inspiring women in Britain today for our M&S "Leading Ladies" campaign, and launched a powerful campaign for the Royal British Legion. We’ve welcomed fresh creative talent from some of the best agencies across Europe and, under our ECD, Mick Mahoney, and continue to focus on expanding the breadth, depth and quality of our creative work.
The new business hunt has seen great successes, with wins including VisitBritain and The Royal British Legion. Sadly, we said goodbye to Virgin Atlantic after a 20-year relationship that has borne some of the most awarded and effective advertising of all time, but we’re excited about the doors that open as a result.
We still managed to find time to put Camden Town back on the cultural and commercial map, with the Camden Create Festival - for which we organised over 60 cultural events, talks and workshops on everything from coding to food, with speakers including Camden luminary Wayne Hemingway."
