In the course of a year, on behalf of their clients, WPP companies make tens of thousands of artefacts. No two are the same. Each one is hand-crafted to its own specific brief. Each one is designed not only to inform and persuade – but to do so with style. Their combined achievement has seen WPP, for the fourth consecutive year, declared Holding Company of the Year at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity.
But because these remarkable works emanate from 3,000 different offices, dispersed as they are over 110 different countries, it’s very easy for their collective achievement to go under-recognised.
So here, gathered together, are 250 pieces of outstanding work, judged by our own professionals to be the best of the best from the last twelve months. They speak far more eloquently of the talent that exists in WPP companies than any words or set of numbers.
I’m intensely proud of it all and of those who created it. They have my respect and my gratitude.
