It follows a run of awards over the last 12 months, with the agency already picking up ‘Advertising / Branding Agency of the Year – South 2010’ the RAR’s prestigious ‘Best in Advertising’ and DBA ‘Creative Company of the year 2009’.

They were also shortlisted for the Marketing Industry Awards Grand Prix, following the collection of two awards in one night.

Gellan Watt, Managing Director said: “We are delighted. It’s an absolute honour to have picked up the awards. The team have been incredible over the last few years. It’s been such a tough market and our business performance has been the result of a lot of hard work.”

“Our secret is simple. We have focused entirely on our clients. We’ve worked harder and faster than ever. We’ve delivered big results and we made sure we focused on producing work that relied on smart thinking, not just hefty spending. And it’s paid off.”

“We are absolutely over the moon. Our account management, creative and digital teams should all be very proud of the themselves. They’ve just beaten the best in the business to a very important prize. My business partner Debbie and I are incredibly proud.”
