Scottsdale-based agency Nomadic won the Gold medal for Agency of the Year, Southwest Region at the 2014 Ad Age Small Agency Awards in Austin last night.
Presented by Ad Age, the leading global source of news and intelligence for the marketing and media community, the Small Agency Awards are the premier honors saluting outstanding work created by independent shops with 150 or fewer employees. The Small Agency Awards were launched six years ago to ensure that the groundbreaking campaigns and innovative brand ideas generated by smaller companies receive the recognition they deserve. The July 28 issue of Ad Age will feature a special section on the Small Agency Awards winners.
Nomadic’s award was based on client campaign work, as well as agency size, revenue, culture and leadership. Campaign work included Social Content Marketing for Disney Parks & Destinations, Promotion and Interactive Brand Experience for Disney Vacation Club, Website Redesign and Content Marketing for Diet Pepsi, and the Digital Content Campaign and Broadcast for Ubisoft’s Rocksmith.
“We were pretty blown away by the incredible talent and powerful ideas coming out of the small agency community,” said Abbey Klaassen, associate publisher – editorial and audience, Ad Age. “Their ambition and abilities make these kinds of firms highly attractive to clients seeking creative and agile partners — and to potential acquirers.”
Tim Washburn, Partner, EVP of Creative at Nomadic added, “We’re thrilled to be recognized by Ad Age for our accomplishments and proud to represent what the Phoenix market is capable of.”
The Small Agency Awards were presented during the annual Ad Age Small Agency Conference, which brings together hundreds of marketing, advertising, design, media, and brand professionals from around the nation to explore trends and issues impacting the nation’s small advertising agencies.
