It is such an achievement to be nominated for three categories alongside some very high profile campaigns.  Since launching the agency in 2010, nomination of our work is real recognition of the growing strength of our agency and underlines the measurable positive impact that our work and insight had on both the sponsor’s and the rights owner’s businesses.
