Triple Drum Roll for Code Computerlove
Manchester-based Code Computerlove has been awarded a triple accolade by The Drum magazine. The digital communications agency has been named as The Drum's 'North West Digital Agency of the Year', its 'North West Marketing Services Agency' of the Year and its national 'Marketing Services Agency of the Year'.
The magazine, which is the leading title for the marketing industry outside the M25, made the awards to Code Computerlove due to its unprecedented growth and enviable string of new account wins during 2006. Across the past 12 months Code has created new sites for clients including Waterstones, HMV, Plumbs and Manchester International Festival. It was also appointed as sole new media agency for RHM Foods, resulting in the creation of digital campaigns for the company's Hovis, Mr Kipling and Rombouts brands.
In previous years the 'Marketing Services Agency' title has been awarded to large full service offline advertising agencies, but The Drum felt this year that Code, who grew from 26 to 43 staff during the past 12 months, was 'best of class' and had 'consolidated its reputation as one of the fastest growing and most creative digital agencies in the country'. "It is as a result of this unfaltering success and impressive growth that The Drum has no hesitancy in awarding Code not only the digital accolade, but also the overall title of Marketing Services Agency of the Year", said the magazine.
Code Computerlove managing director, Tony Foggett, commented, "2006 was a fantastic year for us. In addition to winning substantial new business from some big brand names and launching exciting projects for a number of existing clients, the overall quality of work produced by the team here was exceptional. The fact that Code, as a digital agency, has picked up the national 'Marketing Services Agency of the Year' title is also proof of a shift in the marketing landscape."
