On a night showcasing the best in mobile marketing from across South Africa, we are beyond thrilled to be named Agency of the Year at the 2018 MMA Smarties Awards that took place on 1 November in Sandton, Johannesburg.

The work on display was a testament to how marketers and agencies have embraced the reality of internet access in South Africa and are creating mobile campaigns that not only get results, but do so without forsaking creative storytelling.

In addition to the Agency of the Year Award trophy, Gorilla took home three Silver and two Bronze Smarties as part of the South African awards and Bronze and Gold Smarties as part of the EMEA awards show. To win against campaigns from Europe and the Middle East is a particularly proud achievement.

Successful work only comes from a successful and happy partnership and we have this with the Shield and Unilever teams. Gareth, Nomfundo and the rest of the team, you guys live the brand daily and as always we thrilled to be a part of the Shield journey that we're on.
