Interactive firm Agency.com has been named the Best Creative Agency of the Year by OMMA Magazine. Distinguished by its consistently creative campaigns and innovative uses of technology, Agency’s high-profile jobs include work on the popular eBay “it” campaigns (which included Flash ads featuring live eBay stats and custom landing pages like www.whatis-it.com), in addition to integrating text-messaging and email with banner ads and landing pages for British Airways.
“Our creative work goes beyond the aesthetic,” said Agency.com CEO Don Scales in a statement. “It’s the combination of religiously strategic thinking mixed with breakthrough creative that drives results for our clients and their business.”
In addition to the OMMA honor, Agency.com took home 80+ awards in 2005, including a bronze Cannes Lion award for their work with the paint company Dulux, and two gold MIXX awards for their work on another campaign with Dulux, and non-profit charitable organization the National Society of the Prevention of Cruelty to Children. Since 1995, the Omnicom subsidiary has provided online creative and interactive marketing and advertising services to companies and web sites worldwide. Notable past clients have included 3M, the Miller Brewing Company, British Airways, and Visa, and in 2005 the team brought in at least 26 new clients, including CNN.com and the Food Network.
