About Ogilvy

Every interaction a customer has with a brand builds a picture of that brand in their mind. Which means every single touchpoint is important. Every active engagement. Every passive experience. Every word. Every image. From the first 30 seconds to the next 30 years.

At Ogilvy, we enable this by breaking down the barriers that restrict talent and ideas. Putting creativity at the heart of everything we do. Fuelling creative thinking with data. And using technology not as a crutch, but a ladder. Our teams work fluidly across 5 capabilities: Advertising, Innovation, Experience, PR and Health. Because impact, we believe, is created at the intersections.

We call this Borderless Creativity.

Thanks to this approach, in 2022 Ogilvy was the most creatively awarded agency globally – including the most awarded agency at the Clio Awards, DMA Awards, Influencer Marketing Awards, London International Awards and The One Show.

Ogilvy was ranked the number one UK agency at D&AD and was the only UK agency to win a Glass Lions at Cannes. Ogilvy was also nominated network of the year in Cannes Lions, Campaign, Effie Awards EMEA, London International Awards, The One Show and WARC Rankings.

Ogilvy UK’s PR practice won large agency of the year at the PR Week awards.

And our Consulting practice was in the Forbes 2022 list of best management consultancy firms.
