The leading Manchester based social media marketing agency Social Chain celebrates the end of a record-breaking summer with a contract win with Apple Music, a double award win, a full rebrand and the opening of a New York office.
On Thursday 16 September Social Chain scooped its second major award of the season winning the prestigious Large Agency of the Year at the UK Agency Awards in London. In June the agency also picked up the Best Newcomer of the Year at the Manchester Business Awards.
The award comes after a long string of high profile client wins such as Apple Music, Boohoo, GifGaf and L’oreal which has resulted in a massive recruitment drive and the team doubling in size since May this year.
After securing £3 million investment from German media power house Glow Media following the launch of a Berlin office in June, the award winning agency also recently launched its New York office in August with ambitious plans to expand into the US markets.
To help tell the journey of Social Chain from its launch in 2014 to the present day it is also putting together the finishing touches to a full rebrand which will be unveiled on the 28 September.
Steve Bartlett, managing director of Social Chain says: “We are all so proud to win Large Agency of the Year at the UK Agency Awards, we have had an extremely busy year so far and it is amazing to see everything come together. The award is a testament to the unrelenting hard work of the team and the continuing passion and drive we have towards our work.
“We hope our rebrand will really illustrate just how far we have come and who we are today; a global agency that continues to push boundaries with our out-of-the-box campaigns. As proof of this we have just signed a contract with Apple Music to deliver a top secret social media campaign, so watch this space.”
The Social Chain rebrand will be unveiled on the 28 September and the agency will be holding a launch party in the evening where there will be the opportunity to talk to founders Steve and Dom and explore the new office
