Bluestorm the 26th best integrated agency in the north of England
The team here at Bluestorm HQ has been celebrating this morning after discovering we have been named in the top 50 integrated agencies in the North of England.
The Prolific North Top 50 Integrated Agencies 2013 list is a definitive compilation of the North’s largest integrated agencies, spanning creative, advertising, marketing and sales promotion - and we ranked 26th! Not bad, considering 150 agencies were assessed.
It is the first-ever Northern ranking of its kind and was based solely on financial performance. Many agency rankings rely on candidates submitting selected information about themselves, or paying to enter, but this Prolific North list is wholly independent.
With the exciting buzz surrounding Hull’s City of Culture 2017 bid, which went to Derry yesterday, the ranking is brilliant news for the region.
Bluestorm’s managing director Andrew Cawley, said:
“The results were based solely on performance and they will only further add to the aim of establishing East Yorkshire as the home of some of the North’s leading design and marketing agencies.
“The list shows firms from this area can compete on a level playing field with those in larger cities, such as Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Newcastle and Leeds. The recognition from Prolific North has really helped put East Yorkshire on the map.”
Bluestorm is not the only firm in this area to feature in the list. We would like to congratulate our fellow agency Strawberry, based in Hull, who ranked 38th!
The Top 50 Integrated Agencies initiative follows on from the publication of the ground-breaking Prolific North Top 50 PR Agencies ranking in June this year.
Prolific North will be also publishing a separate compilation of the Top 50 Digital Agencies and further information will be published shortly about this initiative.
