Colenso BBDO Ranked #5 in The World in 2018 Contagious Pioneers List

Colenso BBDO Auckland has been ranked fifth in the world in Contagious Pioneers 2018 - its list of the best and bravest agencies on the planet. The #1 agency was Saatchi & Saatchi London.

The Contagious Pioneers list is a global ranking of agencies that consistently set the standard for creativity, innovation and excellence in marketing, based on the quantity of work from the year that demonstrated creative or strategic excellence.

The BBDO network was well represented in the list, with Clemenger BBDO Melbourne ranking third CHE Proximity ranking fourth and Impact BBDO Dubai ranking ninth.

Says Alex Jenkins, editorial director, Contagious: "Contagious has a reputation for setting an exceptionally high bar for creativity and innovation, but those are just table stakes for being featured on I/O. It's the quality of the strategic thinking behind their campaigns that propelled these agencies into this year's Pioneers list.

"What you have here is a list of agencies that are giving their clients a competitive edge through work that is both intelligent and creative; innovative and effective."

Says Paul Kemp-Robertson, co-founder of Contagious: "Producing work of this calibre is hard enough, but to consistently deliver that quality across multiple clients demonstrates a deeper, systematic ability to produce exceptional marketing. That's what the Contagious Pioneers list recognises; the best and the bravest agencies on the planet."
