Who we are
Each day at BBDO we set out to deliver the world's most compelling advertising. We develop the best creative content in every form and channel imaginable. And we do it better than anyone else. In fact, we were recently named the "Most Awarded Agency Network" in the world by The Gunn Report for the fifth consecutive year. In 2011, we were also named Cannes Network of the Year for the fifth consecutive year. 2011 was the first year that Cannes awarded Lions for Effectiveness and the BBDO Network won four of the six awards given, including the Grand Prix.
In 2011, BBDO Toronto was named Strategy's Agency of the Year and we were awarded silver in Digital Agency of the Year, finishing runner-up to our sister agency, Proximity.
Early in 2012, we were named Agency of the Year at the FAB Awards, the world's preeminent Food and Beverage show.
More recently we were named Agency of the Year at the Art and Design Club of Canada.
How we work
We work with clients who operate around the globe, nationally, and locally. We work in all communications channels with clients in all categories. We work with famous consumer brands, with world-class B2B brands, and with aspiring smaller brands who understand the value of great creative. BtoB magazine even named us their BtoB Agency of the Year in 2006, 2008, and 2010 (they don't allow you to win in successive years).
So why the focus on great creative? The answer is simple. Our goal is to build our clients' brands and businesses. By creating the most compelling creative, we get people to notice, to engage, to act. This obsession on the work is how we best help our clients succeed.
