Today our business turns three years old! Today we’re a big, busy, bustling business full of creative minds, innovators and award winners, but three years ago today, Battenhall launched in a big empty office in East London, with only a tiny bit of client work to get us started, and only one person (me!). However we had big plans – to become the next great agency. Here is what I wrote about our founding mission back then. It was a scary and exciting time. But there was a gap in the market for a digital innovation-led communications agency, and the rest is history.
The last 12 months have been a complete transformation for our business, for our team and the work we do. We’ve doubled in size, we now have ‘love brand’ clients in every sector – one of our big goals this time last year – with new expansions into healthcare, fashion, financial services, talent and entertainment, and we’ve expanded globally with work coming in from LA to Sydney. And we’ve expanded our services into new disciplines.
We’ve been humbled by the industry accolades the last 12 months have brought us. We were named best social media agency in the UK, best large agency, best specialist agency, best small agency, best new agency in EMEA, and we were finalists for best integrated agency and global new agency of the year. Phew!!!
The last year saw us move into a new, bigger HQ, launch a new social media channel or two, put on some industry leading events, and speak at some of the biggest too. For the full lowdown and for something a little more light hearted, have a read of our Buzzfeed article taking a look back at the 36 highlights from 3 years at Battenhall.
