Twist is celebrating its first industry award win following the North East Marketing Awards last night.

Will Larkin took home the coveted award for ‘Rising Star of the Year (Agency)’ in recognition of his professional progression during his two years at Twist. Judges were impressed with Will’s commercial awareness, creativity and willingness to step into a senior role to meet the needs of the business.

This achievement comes as part of a bumper year for us at Twist after tripling turnover in year two and relocating to larger offices, on Grey Street in Newcastle city centre, to accommodate our expanding team.

Will said “This is such an exciting time for Twist. Having joined the team just after its launch in 2017, I’ve been fortunate enough to learn from some of the UK’s best marketing minds and work with some incredible clients. I’m so proud to know I’ve contributed to the success of this brilliant agency and can’t wait to see what my future holds with Twist!”.

Chrissie Plunkett, Managing Director at Twist said “as an agency, we’re brave enough to challenge the norm with the campaigns we deliver. Will’s contribution of adding enormous levels of creativity to those projects, along with his commercially-minded approach has generated a good return for our clients through some exceptional work which is testament to this award”.

Twist has organically evolved to specialise in creative direction, encompassing PR, brand and web design and digital marketing – building an international portfolio of clients spanning 3 continents.
