We got it.
We got shortlisted and asked to produce further work and send it over. However after we discussed it at great length we realised that doing more work wasn't going to be very beneficial for us or the client as there was no further information, so instead we asked if we could simply meet with the client again and show some rough development work. The idea was that they would either buy in to our process and agency or not.
Thankfully they responded very well to us and our approach, then awarded us the job. Woo hoo we will be acting as Design Partners and rolling out a brand overhaul across all material.
I'm extremely proud and excited by this win and i feel chuffed that i've achieved my number two objective for the year in the first week.
Time for a drink.
