When David Abbott, Peter Mead and Adrian Vickers founded AMV 40 years ago, it was with the simple ambition of becoming the best communications agency in the UK.

Sticking to this philosophy has also seen AMV become the biggest agency in the UK. We have been for the last 21 years.

We work with over 70 brands and have one simple aim with all of them – to create powerful brand platforms that propel them forwards. We firmly believe in the link between creativity and effectiveness.

AMV BBDO is ranked number two in the world by WARC for strategy and effectiveness.We hold the inaugural Grand Prix at the YouTube Works Awards 2017. And we helped BBDO become Network of the Year at the IPA Effectiveness Awards 2016 for the first time.

AMV BBDO was made Creative Agency of the Year at this year’s Creative Circle Awards, for a second consecutive year and helped the BBDO network win Network of the Year at Cannes 2017.

AMV is part of the BBDO network, which has 289 offices across 81 countries. With BBDO, AMV is in good company. For eleven years in a row, BBDO has been ranked the most creative agency network in the world in The Gunn Report. In addition, in 2017, BBDO was named Network of the Year at Cannes and the most effective agency network in the world in the Global Effie Effectiveness Index.
