When David Abbott, Peter Mead and Adrian Vickers founded AMV 40 years ago, it was with the simple ambition of becoming the best communications agency in the UK.
Sticking to this philosophy has also seen AMV become the biggest agency in the UK. We have been for the last 20 years.
We work with over 70 brands and have one simple aim with all of them – to create powerful brand platforms that propel them forwards. We firmly believe in the link between creativity and effectiveness. Creativity is at the core of our DNA and we always operate with passion, integrity and civility.
