An honoree in this year's Webby Awards, gnet also garnered the most awards for a gaming agency in 2017 in both the PromaxGAMES Awards and Clio Entertainment Awards, as well as a Clio Entertainment Grand Award and Ad Age's Small Agency Gold Award for Integrated Campaign of the Year.
Leveraging more than 15 years of video game marketing strategy and execution, gnet transforms entertainment brands into cultural mainstays by connecting game brands with a hungry fanbase, cultivating communities, and igniting authentic consumer passion for a brand. Recently gnet has been applying this expertise beyond the gaming sector, most notably working as a lead agency crafting integrated campaigns for Netflix's original series including "The Punisher" and "Altered Carbon."
"We've been fortunate to have long-term partnerships with some of the top names in gaming for over a decade, and are excited to bring what we've learned in that space to entertainment and other fan-driven lifestyle brands as well," notes gnet CEO David Getson. "The growing influence of fan communities is becoming clearer, especially at a time when earned engagement is challenging the traditional paid advertising approach."
Adds gnet President John Rosenberg, "Passion-driven brands can only succeed in today's media landscape by understanding the unique power of fans, and knowing how to tap into it. The sector where that dynamic truly originated is in games, and we are thrilled to see the incredible collaborations we've had in this space get recognized on this national level."
