Agency life

A lot can happen in a year. Particularly in an agency environment, there’s been no time to stand still. Projects and deadlines come and go for a wide variety of clients and sectors.

But it’s a great time to work in the industry. Budgets are picking up and new technology is giving brands new ways to talk with their audience. Some things won’t change though. The successful agencies continue to deliver, creatively, and provide a meaningful impact on their clients’ businesses.

This year we’ve renewed our Recommended Agency status through RAR and ranked in The Drum’s 2014 Design Census. Our campaign for Huub helped them to win awards with some pretty impressive results.

My week with The Media Group


I’m Ben Martell. I’m 15 and I’ve spent the past week on work experience with The Media Group. I have really enjoyed my time here and I have learned a great deal of skills from the busy and varied work. Here’s a summary of my working week:

Day 1

When I entered the office I was greeted by Stephen Hillier who showed me around and introduced me to the team which made me feel immediately welcome. After an all-important health and safety briefing, I spent the first day with Victoria Phillipson and the video team. We filmed a client’s CEO and other footage to create their monthly company update. The camera operator showed me how to set up a scene for it to look professional yet modern.

In the afternoon, I saw where all the work happens in the edit suite. Victoria and team made sure all the videos looked perfect.
