It said it had won 100 per cent of its new business pitches this year. Pitch wins include Scottish activation for spirits giant Diageo, new product launches for Baxters Food Group, advertising for potato grower Albert Bartlett, national launch for Bright Spirits Gin and industry communications for the Rail Safety Standards Board.

Guy, who is also managing creative director, said: “I’m very proud of our team and the work we’ve produced this year. But I’m even more proud of our clients seeing significant growth from our collaborative efforts.

“That’s what makes the real difference in building great client relationships. It ticks the box for year one of our outrageous five-year ambition to grow both domestically and internationally.”

To help support its growth, the agency has appointed six more staff across all areas of the business and invested in doubling its office space. Among the other brands the firm has worked with are Royal London, Ian Macleod Distillers and Border Biscuits.
