The Agency for the Account Director  

This all-time great advertising agency has always been the nation’s favourite; attracting exorbitant talent.

They are world famous for creating genre-bending work and have a knack for picking up all the glittering prizes at the award ceremonies; dancing like a boxer on quick, eager feet and flaunting their talent for the industry to see and admire.

Their position is unassailably in the Top 10, based on their belief that brands are built by conversations rather than communications.  

They are clever at constantly adding value to the client’s business by stretching the client creatively rather than being pushed back.  

At this agency you live the lifestyle! They are big on people who have interests outside of agency life and can express themselves beyond their job.   Attitude and personality flourish here!

The agency is a genuine meritocracy for talent and entrepreneurs who put themselves forward for new opportunities will find themselves advancing rapidly up the career ladder.

The agency has kept up to speed with the shifts in the cultural and technological landscape and they produce powerful creative that invades the popular culture.

However, unlike the new kids on the block who knock out gutsy, noisy creative that is polarising, this gem of an agency knows how to play the subtlety card and strike home  with a lustrous, lyrical narrative that touches the emotions.

Their creative work stands the test of time and they are recognised for courageously breaking new ground.

This is not an agency for the faint-hearted or those who wish to get safely to the other side!
