You could be forgiven for thinking that it sounds like the plot for a CS Lewis story, but 2013 really was a fairy tale year for The Mission Control.
It started with a Royal visit from Prince Andrew, who came to check out a brand that we’d launched in New York just a few months earlier. Then we had the news that our Creative Monsters campaign had taken gold at the An Post awards in Dublin. We don’t normally get excited about awards and leave them for our clients to collect, but it really was very humbling to be recognised by our counterparts from across the border for our creativity and effectiveness. So thank you.
The next chapter in our fairy tale year came with the news that Prince Charles was coming to visit and that we had to prep for his arrival at the Prince’s Trust. Working with some trusted suppliers and in complete secrecy, it was soon another case of Mission Complete coupled with some very well practiced curtsies. Oh – did we mention that we were also award Recommended Agency Register status for the fourth consecutive year? We were really proud of that one.
But the real crowning achievement of the year wasn’t the opportunity to meet people with more impressive titles than Creative Director or admire our nice new shinny gold award, it was getting the opportunity to work with some pretty talented marketing teams within our clients’ ranks.
So thank you to all of the marketing managers, directors, presidents, coordinators and executives that have made 2013 such an amazing year.
Happy New Year!
