The UK Digital Agency Profiles & Rankings 2012 guide is the 3rd country research to be published in 2012, with previous ones published in February (Canadian market) and May (US market). Following AKQA’s acquisition by WPP, the USA report has been updated in June. Similarly to the previous digital publications of RECMA and the Digital Agency Research Department (DARD), this UK report has been compiled in close partnership with the decision makers of the agencies studied.

DARD carried out this research by touring in the country studied or setting up call meetings with the companies presented in the Agency profiles based on a scope representative of the 4 reporting families (Advertising, Media, Specialists & Independents).

Since DARD’s  launch in November 2011, researchers have met with Managing, Sales & Marketing directors from a total of 44 digital agencies across Canada, the USA and the UK; 9 agencies in Canada, 19 agencies in the USA and 16 agencies in the UK. This research enabled the DARD to gather information, compile reports and observe variations & tendencies about each specific market.

In November 2011, RECMA published a report covering the TOP150 global digital players. It was the fourth edition of our global digital report. In addition to this worldwide focus, since January 2012, the DARD part of RECMA delivers local guide following investigations in the following top markets: USA, UK, Canada and France. Furthermore, Germany, Spain, Italy and Australia will be covered in 2013. The goal of this range of reports is to clarify the digital agency industry. Since 2007, RECMA published yearly digital classifications and rankings.
