78% of marketeers think that their briefs offer sufficient creative direction, but only 5% of creative agencies agree. Instead, most agencies will tell you briefs lack focus, clarity and inspiration…
As a marketplace that connects pioneering independent creative agencies to corporate buyers, Studiospace is on a mission to not only showcase the world’s most pioneering independent creative agencies, but also to enable project owners to easily find these agencies and brief them in a way that yields the best project outcomes.
Handpicked by us, each of the agencies on our marketplace are founder-led and boast deep specialist expertise.
Needless to say, the Studiospace community was over the moon when we saw some of the agencies on our marketplace rack up awards in 2021 for the quality of their groundbreaking work.
In line with our mandate of supporting agency growth, we wanted to showcase and celebrate the success of some of our award-winning agencies in this article.
So here is a list of 5 award-winning agencies to help you smash your next project out of the park:
One of our community members, Palo-IT, recently received an award for their incredible efforts towards sustainability.
The awards took place in Singapore, with Palo IT managing director Vincent Desclaux explaining:
"We make it our mission to be a tech-for-good company."
The Palo IT Singapore team set up carbon emission key performance indicators, with metrics and data stored and monitored on an app called Toovalu.
This firm was named the overall winner for the small and medium-sized enterprises and large corporation categories of the 2021 Sustainable Business Awards. The ceremony was held at Suntec City Convention and Exhibition Centre and organised by Singapore firm Global Initiatives Communications, which uses data science to help firms be more sustainable.

What's more, Hedgehog Lab has also been recognised as a Best Workplace™ in Tech by Great Place to Work UK.

Tom Jones, the CEO and Co-Founder of Three Whiskey explained:
"When the team gets recognition for their work, it's always a good validation for them. However, for me, that's the most important benefit of awards. They can help boost momentum and generate a "winning" mentality!"
