NEW YORK, Dec. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SHOOT, the leading publication for commercial, branded content and entertainment production, has named TBWA\Chiat\Day New York and Los Angeles, as well as TBWA\Media Arts Lab (TBWA\MAL), its Agency of the Year.
In making its selection, SHOOT pulled a line from one of TBWA\MAL's recent spots for iPad 2, "Getting lost in the things we love has never felt quite like this." SHOOT went on to say, "That sense of wonderment and experiencing things in a new way... applies to what makes TBWA\Chiat\Day, Los Angeles and New York, and TBWA\MAL so relevant in today's advertising/marketing/branding landscape."
Lee Clow, global director of Media Arts, TBWA Worldwide and chairman of TBWA\MAL, said in discussing the recognition, "We are about creative people from different disciplines trying to find, define and reflect the magic of a brand, big or small. Every client deserves as big an idea as we can find them. That belief, at our core, has helped us remain creative and entrepreneurial—and I believe it helped us earn this year's honor from SHOOT."
SHOOT recognized the agency's work in 2011 for clients that include Apple, Nissan, Pepsi, Gatorade, Pernod Ricard (ABSOLUT & Jameson), Bare Escentuals and Pacific Standard Time.
Tom Carroll, president and CEO, TBWA Worldwide, said of SHOOT's recognition, "Our objective is to bring out the best in our clients and their brands. This recognition from SHOOT is proof we have the industry's best creative leadership in people like Rob Schwartz, Duncan Milner, Mark Figliulo and Patrick O'Neill."
