The Prolific North Top 50 Integrated Agencies for 2020 have been announced. This is regarded as the benchmark ranking for the North's multi-faceted creative agencies.
The list was compiled by independent research agency Mustard, creating a ranking that represents the definitive ranking of the North's leading integrated agencies - spanning a range of advertising, marketing and creative businesses.
A huge congratulations goes out to Big Brand Ideas who jumped from 39th to 22nd place. It's a great achievement, and the list goes to show the vast amount of creative talent based in the North of England.
The ranking is predicated on a formula which examines a variety of factors including shareholder funds and/or balance sheets, turnover, pre-tax profits and headcount. As only around a third of the agencies file full accounts (over £6.5m turnover), part of our agreement with companies providing confidential information is that we will not itemise or publicise their individual financials. Agencies were not offered the option to be included or not.
