Number of staff: 352

New business / billings: £10.5 Million

Summary of the year so far: "We started 2014 full of beans as day two we had our first kick-off meeting with our newest client; Virgin Media Business as their lead creative agency. 

February saw us getting stuck into The Sun+ Goals account after winning the business without a pitch, swiftly followed with us being awarded the CRM accounts for both The Times and The Sun. 

The new business machine didn’t stop there, winning six additional clients in four months; including United, Bridgestone, (plus four clients we need to keep under wraps) as well as picking-up additional projects for Shell, Nokia and Microsoft. 

The work highlights have been the launch of Shell Lubricant’s first ever global social campaign, starting a ‘Zingy’ style dance movement with EDF Energy at Brighton Pride. And more recently, asking footie fans to give us their #DTconfessions as we launched The Sun’s Fantasy Football – Dream Team. 

Our peers have also acknowledged our work, specifically at Cannes, Marketing Week, Marketing Society and our Nokia work keeps on giving with D&AD and Shorty Awards recognition. 

We’ve also found time to buy a technology agency; FusePump, as well as review our CSR approach, which has seen us start working with the Childhood Eye Cancer Trust."
