Executive Creative Director Andrew Petch said, “To win all these awards, including #1 Agency as well as Agency of the Year at our country's biggest award show, was not only recognition of the immense hard work and belief in the effectivity of creativity from everyone in our agency, but also that of our biggest clients Procter & Gamble, PLD, and Cebuana Lhuillier.”
