“This kind of recognition communicates the success of our strategy,” comments Jari Lähdevuori, Creative Director of Kurio. “In 2016, we were at a point where we had achieved a lot in thought leadership, strategy and research. I and our Strategy Director, Elli, both gave a hundred speeches a year. We decided it was time to roll up our sleeves and start doing what we were taught. Walk the walk.”

“We have been building a modern agency and recognition of this size indicates that we are on the right track,” says Tommi Opas, CEO of Kurio. “Our unconventional approach reflects not only in our implementation, but also in how we build our operations. The direction is clear: we want to help our clients do creative, measurable, and effective marketing and communication in social media and other digital channels. ”

The eighth edition of the Global Creative Index analyzes entries and winners from more than 25 award programmes focusing on communications, digitalisation and marketing. The sample consists of competitions from around the world over the last 12 months. The estimates emphasize the agencies that have been responsible for the campaign idea.
