What’s the Creative Agency like for the Account Director?

This agency opened its doors in London to a groundswell of excitement and has kept up the momentum.  They are the A-listers of the creative world and key talent in the industry would give their eye teeth for the chance to work here.

Their reputation for sensational creative has catapulted them into the limelight and onto some very tasty pitch lists beating the larger agencies and producing some dazzling work.

It’s not just the quirky or niche clients that chase after this agency’s services but the larger advertisers also want to know what the agency can do to revitalise their brands.

They have flexed their creative muscles to produce distinctive advertising that cuts through the drear produced by the more cautious players.  They know that a high production value cannot rescue a dull idea.  

The bigger agencies that battened down the hatches have lost momentum and have woken up to find that this exciting hotshop has stolen the march on them and left them behind in the doldrums.

In today’s world it is about being daring, fleet of foot and having the confidence to turn down business that doesn’t fit the agency culture.  Procurement - led clients who “know the price of everything and the value of nothing” can beat the bigger agencies into submission but not this one.

This gem of an agency is romping up the league tables and on the cusp of producing some agency-defining campaigns.

The proof is in the pudding: this is one of the few agencies that is weighted 60:40 in favour of the Creative Department.
