To say we’re rather chuffed with this latest batch of awards nominations is a bit of an understatement. Now nobody is counting any glassware chickens just yet but I’m sure you won’t mind us patting ourselves a tiny little bit on the back.
Big love to the aforementioned clients for buying some great work and to the talented Bears working tirelessly to create something great.

So, keep everything crossed for us as unbelievably it’s 20 years since Rich and I picked up the very first ever gold at the inaugural Cream Awards back in 1997 for a mono press ad for The Birmingham Marketing Partnership. Sadly, as this was pre-internet it appears all traces of its existence have long since disappeared.
We of course wish all our fellow nominees the best of British and we’ll see you at the bar in The Jam House on the 22nd November.
