We were very pleased to have been awarded overall second place in The Drum's 2008 Design Consultancy of the Year awards, which were held in Manchester recently.
Following surveys with clients, peers and editorial research, The Drum unveiled a list of the Best 25 Design Agencies outside of London and we were in the running. The results were based on four key polls - financial, creative, peer and client satisfaction. Thompson's success across the board, including 2nd place in the Creative Poll, ensured us 2nd place overall.
As one of our clients noted 'It must be really gratifying to note that you have such a strong brand in the industry'. She's right to a degree but we think this kind of recognition is especially great when the result comes from our work, our peers and our clients.
We'll try and win it next year.
