22 reasons to celebrate

Abi Owers



What do Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Daniel Craig and Big Brand Ideas have in common?

Come on, it’s easy. The answer is the number 22. Daniel Craig starred in the 22nd James Bond movie, Jay-Z and Taylor Swift have both used 22 in the title of one their tracks and Big Brand Ideas has been ranked at number 22 in Prolific North’s Top 50 Integrated Agencies of 2020.

That’s a rise of a whopping 17 places from last year’s listing!

It’s a reflection of what was a fantastic year for us as an agency and this news is the perfect way to kick off 2020. It’s testament to the incredible work our team does on a daily basis and it’s an achievement we’re incredibly proud of.

When Jon first opened our doors in 2011 his aim was to build an agency for the future, one that delivered modern solutions for modern brands. It’s fair to say his ambitions have been brought to life through the unbelievable talent we have within the agency, the creation of a high-performance culture and the belief he could build an agency capable of adapting to the world’s ever-evolving landscape.

Sixty four staff later and an amazing client list, we’re on the cusp of growing even further. We’ll be opening a brand-new office in Manchester city centre early this year that will allow us to offer even more content capabilities, greater space for collaboration with our clients and a working environment fit for the future.

If 2019 was a year of growth, with brand acquisitions like Hoover and Shell, 2020 promises to be one of ongoing innovation, a challenger approach to the way we operate and results that stand out from the crowd.

Congratulations to all who made the Top 50 and good luck to those looking to break through next year. Here’s to a record-breaking 2020. If you'd like to be part of it get in touch.
