2013 Agencies of the Year
There’s something brewing behind the walls of this year’s agency winners. To keep ahead of lightning-speed industry change, they’re introducing new methods to their mix – some use gaming mechanics to boost morale, others share office space with entrepreneurs.
It’s all part of a new era of transformation, where agencies are introducing fresh in-house techniques to foster healthy ideation. John St. and Tribal Worldwide enlisted this type of thinking, taking top honours in AOY and DAOY respectively.
Also no strangers to the winners’ circle, Taxi and BBDO take home some hardware for work that’s true to both agencies’ off-the-wall humour and fondness for consumer-created-and-fueled marketing. They’re stirring inspiration through brand-specific brainstorming digs and communal idea scouring.
And on the media front, Gold winner OMD is collapsing office walls to stimulate greater collaboration.
