Square Keira Gilleece


In order to convey the breadth of Square’s all-in-one hardware, software & payments ecosystem to a busy B2B audience that had been deeply impacted by the pandemic, we developed the “Almost” marketing campaign. Utilising Irish humour tailored to core business verticals & customised based on the placement, audience & location, Square was able to increase brand consideration, further B2B understanding of our offering, and improve relevancy with our audience. Through a mix of digital, OOH, audio, experiential and in-person events, we managed to align “almost” every aspect of the campaign, resulting in more efficient ad spend, higher brand trust, & a seamless user experience.

Three Ireland Jay Wilson


Heading into 2022, Three Business had aggressive growth targets which were highly ambitious in a mature category. Targeting the small business segment, our campaign for the year needed to speak to both the head and the heart of the audience. The “Three Grants for Small Businesses” programme centered around offering small businesses the opportunity to win funding which included Three products and solutions. We activated a consistent integrated multichannel digital campaign which included Youtube, Meta, Linkedin, Twitter, display and email. This resulted in real business results with both short and long term objectives being achieved.

The Indie List Una Herlihy


The Indie List was born from a pro bono initiative to help freelancers find work during Covid. The cofounders addressed the challenge of organising, curating and making a large, disparate base of independent talent, easily accessible to enterprises who need it, quickly. With a clear digital strategy, the business harnessed the creativity of their freelancers to engage both their community and clients. Their use of LinkedIn, email marketing, online events, and search enabled them to build meaningful exposure. This in turn has helped generate freelancer revenues of €4m+ since launch and established it as a new force in marketing talent.
