A Hop, Skip and Spring in Our Step
As we step into May, nearly half way through 2017, what feels like the fastest year ever! We ponder over the highs, the lows and the downright marvellous that has been the month of April.
Firstly, we became finalists at the RAR Awards for 3 categories; Advertising, Effectiveness and Creativity and Innovation and, although we didn’t bring home an award, we can honestly say we are extremely proud of our team and how far yesyesBD has come as an agency over the past four years. Just to be nominated was recognition that our team are making waves in the huge ocean that is the ad industry. We are now ready to push harder and go bigger ready for next years nominations! Congratulations to The Wonderland, Crowd and Open Water for your wins and thanks to Stormbrands, Fresh, Multiply and Intermarketing for keeping us company at the table.
Our very own Client Services Director, Wayne Willis, brought home the award for ‘Most Inspiring Member’ at The Business Culture, Hull. We are of course very proud and happy to see the members of our team recognised for their efforts and hard work in the agency and the business community.
April saw yesyesBD get involved with Hull’s large-scale art project ‘Blade’, a 75 metres long, giant turbine blade that was raised above Hull’s city centre. ‘Blade’ is the first of many installations from the ‘Look Up’ art series, which comes to Hull during its year as City of Culture. Our production team filmed the removal of the behemoth structure for a client as it left Hull’s city centre, it was a fantastic project to be involved in.
And finally, to keep the whole team on their toes we decided April was to be the month we put together a showcase of some of our favourite projects created in the yesyesBD studio. The project was a huge collaboration between the whole team, working together to produce a marvellous video that shows off the talented team we have here in the yesyesBD studio. We couldn’t be more proud of the outcome, the video encapsulates exactly what yesyesBD is, as an agency and as a team.
We can only hope May will be just as busy, exciting and manic, we are bracing ourselves for all things to come, with a big smile and of course, with a large cup of tea at the ready.
