The fireworks may have ended and the decorations packed away, but we’re still celebrating our first birthday as Ride Shotgun this January.
It’s been a wild ride so far, from landing new and exciting clients, to winning our first awards, to welcoming a whole new business into the Ride Shotgun team. Here’s the 2022 lowdown from our very own CEO, Mark Mallinder and a sneek peek at our big plans for 2023.
“HAPPY NEW YEAR!
We’ve started ours by looking back at an amazing 2022. We attracted 12 new clients, grew our business by almost 50% and acquired a brilliant specialist CGI business, Set Visions. This brought us to a team of 80+ amazingly talented, dedicated, committed people producing some outstanding work and, really importantly, having fun along the way.
We also defined our brand proposition and put it into practice. We love it when we see a client truly understand what ‘joined up brand journeys’ means for them. So often we’ll hear something like “…so you have brand strategists, creatives and huge production studios, so you can actually produce all of the content we need in one place?” – the answer is always “yes” of course.
We’ve gone all the way from defining brand strategies to creating and producing impactful content, helping our clients achieve impressive results. And delivering the seamless ‘joined up brand journeys’ we want to be famous for.
Not to mention great quality video, animations, photography and CGI, produced in-house, cost-effectively, at speed and at scale. It could be brand films, hero imagery, social assets, thousands of visual assets for e-comm, product configurators, or VR and AR – we’ve got experts at every step.
I’d like to thank everyone who’s helped us along the way to an amazing first year. Together, Ride Shotgun will continue to be the UK’s fastest growing and best strategic brand activation and creative content agency.
We can’t wait to continue to build our story into 2023. We already have some really exciting plans to propel our business forward – watch this space for some big announcements early in the New Year.”
