Behind the scenes with The Mission.

Some behind the scenes shots from a corporate video that we were working on that featured a cast of more than 50 people and one of the best production teams we’ve had the pleasure of working with.

Great experience and a very hands on client marketing team to assist.

Looking forward to big reveal.

The Mission wins Kingspan Insulation (Ireland) creative account in four-way pitch.

We’re delighted to announce that following a four-way competitive pitch, we’ve won the Kingspan Insulation (Ireland) creative account.

The win will see us working with the brand’s marketing team on a variety of cross platform projects.

Kingspan Insulation remains one of the most successful and iconic Irish brands and we look forward to helping reinforce that position.

Brexit musings…

Last week we met with a client in the South of Ireland. There’s nothing unusual about that – in-fact we do it all the time. We cross borders daily without even noticing they are there – physically and digitally.

Yet as we made our way North – the realisation that in just over 40 days our freedom to travel and trade with our closest neighbour could be snatched away made us stop and think.

For years we have all taken our freedom to cross not only the north – south border for granted, but our freedom to travel and trade anywhere in Europe unhindered. That’s a lot to be expected to give up when we still haven’t had a clear plan for the future from the powers that be.


The Mission Control Communications picks up double Gold with US client team at 2018 Davey Awards.

DAVEY AWARDS 2

The International Davey Awards are marketing awards given yearly by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts to honour the most effective ideas from around the world.

Philadelphia | Belfast

2 November 2019

This year, The Mission Control Communications won 2 Gold at the event in New York, making it the most awarded agency in its category.

The UK based agency picked up Gold in the Integrated Campaign Business to Business category and Gold in the Integrated Campaign Marketing Effectiveness category for a US Technologies company.

James Killoran, head of strategy at The Mission Control Communications, said: “We worked really closely with the client’s marketing team on this project and I think that’s evident in the result. The fact that the campaign has been recognised not once, but twice by an international panel of judges proves that it is possible for an agency and an in-house team to not only work side by side, but to do so, successfully.”

Both wins follow the announcement last week that The Mission Control Communications has signed a strategic alliance to formally extend capabilities with US company – Signifi – providing the agency with a permeant base of operations in the United States.

Signifi announces strategic alliance with The Mission Control Communications.

allianceOctober 31, 2018

Hudson, NY.  After months of planning, Signifi founder Dr. Joseph Bedford confirmed today that the United States based strategic marketing and branding agency has entered into a strategic alliance with European marketing, branding and communications consultancy The Mission Control Communications to extend and align skillsets, talent and resources worldwide. The alliance announced today will see both companies consolidate an already highly effective relationship that has spanned more than a decade.

The alliance empowers both firms to take advantage of complementary skill sets for the benefit of clients. Whereas Signifi has specialized expertise in helping companies with strategy, branding, sales and marketing effectiveness, and the customer experience, The Mission Control Communications has the ability to deliver world-class support for marketing, branding, product launch and other communications campaigns. Together, these two agencies offer life science companies, such as Contract Research Organizations, a viable alternative to existing firms that do not have the subject matter expertise or strategic capabilities offered by the alliance of Signifi and The Mission Control Communications. 

Dr. Bedford comments on the alliance, “Signifi exists to offer key decision makers at Contract Research Organizations and other life sciences companies access to a level of specialized expertise that few other firms possess. Our alliance with The Mission Control Communications enables Signifi to offer its clients a turnkey solution to support branding, marketing and other promotional campaigns. I’ve worked with James Killoran and The Mission Control Communications for over a decade on a variety of branding and marketing campaigns. They consistently addressed my needs while I was running marketing departments at CROs worldwide, so I am very confident they will deliver that level of excellence to Signifi’s clients.”  

James Killoran, Head of Strategy at The Mission Control Communications said, “This moment has been more than 10 years in the making, so today is significant for all involved. The combination of Joe’s experience in running marketing and strategy programs from a client perspective at major CRO’s, coupled with our own ability to effectively deliver on those program needs as a creative agency and partner, makes this a relationship that is built on proven outcomes and trust.”

With further announcements on alliances planned over the coming months with notable research, technology and public relations agencies, as well as experienced life science marketing and sales consultants, today’s announcement lays the foundation to a core agency structure that will transform the marketing landscape for life science companies on both sides of the Atlantic and beyond.  

END.

Independence is something we have celebrated on this day for four glorious years. So as we celebrate our independence from tyranny here at The Mission Control Communications, we’d also like to wish our many clients, friends, colleagues and associates across the United States the same and hope they have an amazing 4th of July.

16 May 2018

Taking on some of the world’s leading advertising, branding and marketing agencies, The Mission Control Communications has won 2 Gold, 1 Silver and 1 Bronze for its work with corporate clients at two of the advertising world’s most hotly contested events in New York and London.

Awards won by The Mission Control Communications for clients in the United States and Europe at the 2018 Communicator Awards and Creativepool Annual Launch Awards span three key aspects of corporate communications, including Branding, Corporate Identity and Advertising for the following:

  • Gold, Corporate Identity Campaign-Identity Programme for Corporate Communications CA
  • Gold, Campaign-Branding for Integrated Campaign CA

Science Heroes and Heroines

  • Silver, Campaign for Marketing CA
  • Bronze, Direct Mail CP

Whilst awards are not a driving force for our agency, they do demonstrate a benchmark that places us alongside some of the best known and most highly respected advertising, branding and design groups in the world,” said James Killoran, Strategy Director at The Mission Control Communications.

More importantly – they are a testament to the relationships we have built and continue to build with our clients, that collectively, allow us to compete and win with such consistency on an international stage.

With now more than a dozen worldwide awards and as many nominations under its belt in just three years, The Mission Control Communications is proving that size and location are no barrier to creating outstanding work in some of the most challenging sectors of the industry for clients that expect results.

Commenting on one of the agency’s wins, Creativepool Judge and Executive Creative Director at Grey Group, New York, Joanna Carver commented: “Really nice thinking. I’m sure it felt very personal to each person receiving it. I love that you used each person’s desk as a media – really smart. This campaign absolutely deserves credit. Rare to see an internal campaign go to this level of thought and effort and I applaud all of the craft that went into it.

Mission Accomplished!

A golden start to the year for The Mission Control Communications and clients.

IMG_0900Today is a pretty significant date in the calendar for us. It marks three years since we declared our independence and set out on our own mission.

Serendipity was not going to let us forget that decision and what better way to remind us than to have all these Davey Awards arrive from in with us from the United States this morning.

I guess you could call it an effective reminder that when you consistently bring great work to the table in collaboration with great clients, you get great results.

Now to start repackaging them and send them back to the States to the client marketing teams that we produced the award winning work in collaboration with.

Mission Accomplished.
