When History Will Be Kind (HWBK) was founded in 2014, we set out to establish ourselves as a new breed of communications agency, operating at the crossroads of public relations, social media and digital. I’m immensely proud of how we’ve gone from strength to strength with each passing year. Here are three ways we have grown well beyond my expectations.
We’ve cemented our place in the industry, winning over 30 clients in three years. From developing full integrated communications strategies to building social media communities, and everything in between. We’re delighted to have played a part in fostering growth in start-ups, to positioning blue chip companies as thought leaders.
We’ve been involved in ground-breaking work, from the launch of the iconic International Convention Centre Sydney, to collaborating with our sister agencies on pharmaceutical brand Flordis across a range of their products, and creating high-impact content and activations for Fox Home Entertainment’s X-Men: Apocalypse.
We’ve expanded to become a powerhouse interdisciplinary and agile team. From industry heavyweights to keen young guns, we’re able to draw on the skills and enthusiasm from every member of HWBK and beyond.
As part of Deepend Group, we’re fortunate enough to join forces and expand our offering by tapping into the wealth of knowledge from leading strategists, creative technologists and innovation consultants, just to name a few. We also champion innovative thinking through the Bear Pit initiative, which fosters cross-team collaboration through the chance to win an incubator investment pack, and diversity within the industry by supporting Deepend’s Code Like a Girl, which inspires women in coding and leaderships roles within the tech industry.
Great, Award Winning Work
The creative and disruptive campaigns we’ve crafted, across industries, have not gone unnoticed. In three short years’ we are delighted to have been awarded ten key accolades, against stiff competition. We were first nominated as a finalist in AdNews’ Small Agency Awards in 2015. We won CommsCon’s Midsize PR Agency of the Year in 2016. We’ll be looking to defend our title later this month – fingers crossed! Just last week, we won AdNews’ PR Agency of the Year Award – a massive achievement for a young agency. I’m proud to be collaborating with fantastic clients and a legendary team. It’s been one hell of a ride.
While we have celebrated incredible achievements, we’re ramping up for yet another colossal year ahead with lots of exciting new projects in the works. I can only imagine how much further we’ll go in another three years – let’s make history.
