To say that running an ad agency today is tough would be an understatement. Models were already changing, work and clients were moving around rapidly and then, this year, a pandemic and social unrest only added to the challenges brands and agencies face. Even so, agencies and solution providers around the world have proven up to the task and are becoming even more valuable partners to brands, as shops of every stripe continue to deliver results… Even in the face of adversity, these quickly growing shops in every category imaginable—from creative to b-to-b, performance to full-service—illustrate why brands rely on their expertise and resourcefulness to ensure success.  Doug Zanger, Senior Editor, Adweek.


With 2020 causing so much pain, we endeavored to weather the storm and come out fighting.

We can’t wait for what comes next. Onwards and upwards.
