Quirk named Best Digital Agency at Financial Mail AdFocus Awards 2012

It's been a phenomenal year for Quirk, one of Africa's largest independent marketing agencies. Last night the agency was recognised as the Best Digital Agency in South Africa at Financial Mail's AdFocus Awards 2012.
This follows on the recent wins at the Bookmarks Awards earlier in November as well as Rob Stokes, founder and Group CEO of Quirk being awarded the Computer Society of South Africa's IT personality of the Year.

Born from humble roots in 1999 Quirk has evolved to become one of the most awarded agencies on the continent. Stokes believes that Quirk's success is credited to the fact that the agency is driven by creativity yet disciplined by results. "It helps that we also have such talented individuals that make up the bigger Quirk family", says Stokes.

Justin Spratt, Agency CEO, reiterates: "It's only because of the amazing people we have at Quirk that we can achieve these results. We have the smartest people in the room. This means defining the curve, rather than trying to stay ahead of it. Selling our expertise as thought-leaders to define the direction of the industry, rather than try to keep up with it".

The award comes as a timeous nod to Quirk's recent merger with the Red & Yellow School of Logic and Magic, as well as its continuing contribution to furthering the industry through education and innovation.
