We’re delighted to have been shortlisted for five awards at this year’s UK Digital Growth Awards 2023.
This peer recognition for our campaign work, as well as a wider appreciation for our growth journey in being shortlisted for ‘Startup Agency of the Year’ is testament to the hard work from the whole team.
Many of these categories are for work with longstanding clients, proving that our approach to client services makes a difference. The work we’re been shortlisted for covers innovative approaches, making sense of big data, applying creativity in an otherwise data-driven world, and fully immersing ourselves within our client’s businesses to completely understand their offerings.
We’ve worked with brands across a range of sectors and verticals, from SMEs to global businesses, each time applying a strategic approach in conjunction with more tactical marketing activation.
Steve Underwood, managing director and co-founder of Bonded, said:
“It’s easy to forget as our business goes from strength to strength that we’re still less than two years old as Bonded. To be recognised by our industry peers for our work is a brilliant reflection of the hard work the team puts in every day.”
“To be shortlisted for five awards, covering many of our core services for work done by so many of our team members is a fantastic achievement in itself. To be shortlisted for Best Startup Agency is incredible. It’s hard to believe we’re still only in our second year of business.”
“Our core values are about forming strong connections with our clients, enabling us to do our best work, and to receive industry recognition for this helps assure the
whole team that this is absolutely the right approach. We’re in year two of our own UK digital growth journey and we’re certainly not done yet.”
Bonded Agency is a digital and media agency that prioritises connection. The agency builds deep connections with its clients, enabling its team to focus on maximising results, and this focus is built into its core values. The agency achieves this by investing in senior client-facing consultants and channel specialists, utilising industry-leading tools and processes to create efficiencies. This approach is especially crucial in a fast-paced and ever-changing world, where brands need to prioritise human connection to stay ahead of the curve.
Bonded has delivered impressive results for brands such as the Rugby League World Cup and Manchester Airport Group. Its range of services encompasses digital marketing, media strategy, and audience profiling.
Founded in 2021 by four former figures from the Dentsu network, Bonded launched to fill the void left by digital technology and automation. The agency has recently relocated to bespoke premises in Newcastle city centre to accommodate its growing team and facilitate knowledge-sharing events.
In addition to client projects, Bonded Agency is passionate about innovation, creating new products, sharing industry knowledge, and fostering a positive working environment that supports health and well-being. In 2022, it launched a new committee for NABS – the advertising and media industry’s well-being charity – and the agency actively champions the RED January initiative, a national movement that promotes the benefits of exercise for positive mental health and well-being.
