What a year. Dominated by Brexit and the general election, it’s been stressful, but don’t worry that’s the last you’ll hear about that.

On a much more positive note it was the year cricket came home, rugby almost did, and we welcomed Prince Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor to the world.

2019 was also a very busy, but extremely exciting year here at Big Brand Ideas, so now seems the perfect to time reflect on what the team has achieved.

We’ve worked on projects for brands including Shell, Hoover, 32Red, Ei Group and Nextbase, across a range of disciplines, from performance and SEO to PR and social media, which have generated HUGE results for our clients.BBI_Blog_Images_Hub_page_1640x1120_X2_Blog_hero_1640x1120_X2 copy 3 (1)It was a record year for National Pub Fortnight and we signed a landmark collaboration agreement with inScience Communications. Our content team, Trunk, helped 32Red and Leeds United mark the club’s centenary and most recently, we worked with Nextbase to help the nation say ‘Yes I Cam’.

Our work has been nominated for several industry leading awards including The Prolific North Awards and the CIPR Pride Awards.

As an agency we’ve grown too, welcoming 27 new starters to the business, all with their own set of unique skills and adding to our already incredibly talented team. It’s been the agency’s most successful year since opening, turnover has increased by more than 25% and we have big plans to ensure this success continues into 2020 and beyond.

Part of those plans is the exciting prospect of our brand spanking new office space in Manchester city centre, but we’ll tell you more about that in the New Year once the Christmas celebrations are out of the way.

There is much more to look forward to during the year ahead. We want to build on the success of 2019 and thank all of our incredible clients for your support over the past 12 months.

As the year draws to a close, all that’s left for us to do is wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2020!
