"Rounding out a really wonderful year of awards recognition (truly, the main thing any of us will remember about 2020), it was a delight to see our teams’ hard work rewarded by industry experts. We were delighted to pick up the Silver Award for the particularly prestigious title of Global Large Content Marketing Agency of the Year. It’s a joy to have shared in so many successes with the whole of the company and to see that our agency is clearly doing excellent work on a global scale!" Peak Ace AG

"The first lockdown was difficult for so many people for lots of reasons, so we are hugely proud to have worked on a campaign which showed how a simple daily routine could benefit mental health. It’s also incredibly rewarding to have our hard work recognised after it generated such clear and meaningful results for Jeyes. We quickly organised the campaign in less than a month with a modest budget but our multi-channel approach still gave us significant cut-through against the changing and fast-paced media backdrop." Rebecca Oatley
