The Union was crowned Scotland’s most creative agency at the 2003 Scottish Advertising Awards this month. Scooping 9 Awards and 7 Commendations The Union topped the awards table for the third time in four years. The Union’s work for Lothian and Borders Fire Brigade, the National Galleries of Scotland, the charity Human Writes and The Scottish IPA won the lion’s share of the awards. The Union also picked up the Chairman’s Award. The Union’s Creative Director, Andrew Lindsay, commented “Our goal has always been to produce a consistently high standard of creative work. Winning one award is tough, but winning a clutch of nine is tremendous. The danger is that we take this success for granted. We’ve now won more creative awards in the last three years than any agency North of the Border, and probably than any agency outside London. That speaks volumes about our client relationships, our planning, our creative teams and our determination to deliver quality. We’ll be aiming for top slot again next year.” The DRUM magazine commented “In seven years the agency’s directors have not only built an agency with a solid foundation based upon a wide range of clients, they have now stamped their mark as a real creative force to be reckoned with in Scotland.”
