To be nominated for such awards makes all the hard work worth it and to be held in the same light as agencies that we’ve been admiring for years is extroadinary.
In Personal Blog or Website, the agency picked up a nomination for their work with mixed martial artist Brad Pickett, aka “One Punch” Pickett. Through creating a brand and online presence for the British UFC fighter, Tommy avoided traditional stereotypes and positioned Brad’s brand alongside more-mainstream elite sports stars. Tommy team members Will, Chris & Marcus wrote a Knowledge Bank piece for The Drum Magazine on the rise of Mixed Martial Arts and the UFC’s sponsorship deal with Broadcaster, Fox. The material is available fully here.
