Three-peat! Wieden+Kennedy tops our Ad Age Agency A-List as Agency of the Year, marking the first time an agency has notched the top spot three years running. I-Hsien Sherwood explains how the shop achieved this feat by continuing to defy the odds and break the rules while delivering outstanding creative and results for clients.
Ad Age is naming its first-ever Agency of the Decade and the honor goes to… Droga5. Ann-Christine Diaz documents how the shop rocketed from an audacious startup to an industry titan, while redefining how the industry looks at creativity. “We rocked the boat from Day One,” says Founder David Droga, and under new owner Accenture, the agency aims to keep, as he puts it, “blowing up” the industry.
