We’re all extremely proud to have won the prestigious award at the Greater Manchester Business Awards last week.
We’ve had such a great start as an agency we sometimes have to stop to remind ourselves that we’re still pretty new, and are still finding our way in the world like a little baby turtle finding it’s way to the relative safety of the ocean, whilst avoiding being eaten by predators along the way.
We’re not sure if we’ve made it yet to that lovely warm gulf stream, but life as an agency has gone really well so far. We’ve created some superb work for a lovely set of clients, we’ve grown the team, set up a great studio in the Northern Quarter and established ourselves as an agency.
It’s not always easy to tell how things are going though when you’re so busy with getting the work done! That’s why it was an honour to be nominated by our clients for a business start-up award to recognise what a great start we’ve had.
The award category was for companies that have been trading for less than two years, and was open to any business in the Manchester area. We were all very surprised to be short-listed and delighted to win Start-up of the Year at the Greater Manchester Business Awards last week at a glitzy event at the Raddisson Blu Hotel in central Manchester.
The judges were particularly impressed by the range of high profile clients we’ve worked with in our first two years, the campaigns we’ve delivered, the standard of work and the results for our clients. They specifically mentioned our multi-award winning branding campaign for Arts Council England, and our campaign of social videos for BBC Three.
A lovely way to start 2018, and a bit of extra spring in our steps now as we near our second birthday! Massive congrats to the team who have worked really hard, and thanks to some super clients for trusting in a new agency.
