Half-Term Reports 2013: Carat

Campaign asked the ad and media industry to rate and summarise their performance so far in 2013, ahead of our School Reports for 2014. Here's how Carat view the first six months of their year.

Score (self-awarded): 7

Number of staff: 637

New business / billings: £18m

Summary of the year so far: "2013 has been vindication of the steadfast belief we have placed in our Redefining Media ethos that allows us to create great work that not only wins awards but drives actual business value for clients. Nowhere can this vindication be seen more clearly than in the number of awards we’ve won – 29 already this year. These include being The Drum’s Marketing Services Agency of the Year as well as awards for brands such as Bodyform (The Truth), ASOS (Best Night Ever) and Krave Week, including a Gold at Cannes and a Revolution Grand Prix. We were also placed in the Sunday Times’ Top 100 Businesses to work for and are current holders of Media Week Agency of the Year and Campaign Network Agency of the Year. We have also been shortlisted on most of the big pitches this year - including BA and Direct Line. However, this extra workload has not hampered our ability to create innovative and effective work or pick up new business including Trinity Mirror and Thomas Cook. "
