ByDesign Communications was named 2017 EMEA New PR Consultancy of the Year at last night’s SABRE Awards gala dinner in London. The 2017 EMEA PR Consultancies of the Year are the result of an exhaustive research process involving more than 200 submissions and face-to-face meetings with the best PR firms across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
ByDesign Communications opened their doors in September 2016 and already boast a blue-chip client base including SAP Africa, adidas, Anglo American, and Coronation Fund Managers to name a few. The team has grown steadily to seven staff.
The founders Vanessa Baard and Kevin Welman were ecstatic at the news of winning this award. “This is further validation that we are doing relevant, integrated, smart work that makes a difference. Just last week we won two awards at the annual PRISM Awards, including being nominated as a finalist in the overall campaign of the year,” says Vanessa Baard, co-founder and director ByDesign Communications.
“We would never have imagined that we would be an award winning agency in our first year, every day still feels new and we are learning so much. We are proud to have attracted the type of clients and staff members we have,” concludes Baard.
