What a Year...

Here's our review of a memorable 12 months

Managing Director Chris Pharo


We entered the PRWeek top 50.

Our digital team landed our first major award – winning in-house team of the year at the PRCA digital awards and received a string of other nominations – as well as being finalists at the Creative Shootout.

We were Highly Commended for the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s Best Use of Digital Marketing Award for the Bitz and Bob Campaign.

We were finalists of Creative Moment Awards 2019, with our FlowerExpress campaign for Heathrow Express shortlisted for Experiential Marketing Campaign of the Year.

Our PR support for Channel Mum’s Mental Health campaign resulted in the campaign winning the Best Use of Influencers in PRWeek’s Campaigns For Good Awards.

We were shortlisted at PRMoment Awards 2019 (ChannelMum Mental Health campaign) and at the Drum Marketing Awards 2019 (PR category: ChannelMum Mental Health campaign and Travel and Tourism category: Accor Hotels, From the Heart campaign).

And our Denim Report for Lyst was awarded with the Awwwards Site of the Day Award.

2019 was the year that saw us strengthen our social offering significantly, now commanding over 500,000 page likes across our owned social channels.

It was also the year we launched the OnePoll app – making our brilliant research engine mobile friendly, built an elephant out of batteries for H&K and their client Duracell to highlight the scandalous amount that go un-recycled and the damage they do to our environment and turned a boring train carriage into a stunning floral display that left commuters utterly delighted for Heathrow Express.

We also helped changed perceptions for Volkswagen and installed them at the forefront of the electric car revolution and created the stunning Lyst Sneaker Intelligence Unit that drove a 47 percent increase in traffic to their website.

We helped Ladbrokes welcome the Australian cricket team to Manchester in unforgettable style.

And it was the year when we achieved an incredible 22,233 pieces of coverage for our clients with our brilliant news generation.

Could not be prouder of the team and can’t wait to see what 2020 is going to bring.
