We’re absolutely thrilled to share we’re one of the top three digital product agencies, and #1 pure-play Design and Build agency, according to The Drum’s newest UK Digital Agency Census that was revealed last night. 

The Drum UK Digital Agency Census is a new ranking to identify the most creative, successful and respected agencies in the UK’s digital landscape.

It ranks agencies based on rival’s opinions, client ratings, staff ratings and the number of creative award wins the agency has scooped in the last 12 months. We’re really happy to have been recognised and ranked high on The Drum’s top 50 lists in each category, being the highest-ranking digital product agency on their Elite list that combines best-of-the-best of all agencies operating across digital, marketing and advertising industries.

Cameron Clarke, the Editor from The Drum said:

The last 12 months have been a hard year for agencies. Budgets have been cut while staff have been marooned at home. But it’s also been a time of opportunity, as companies across the country began their own digital transformation campaigns. And the UK’s digital agencies have risen to the challenge.

Rebecca Crook, Somo’s CGO commented:

We’re so delighted The Drum has recognised our hard work this year and yet again has ranked us as one of the very best digital agencies in the UK. Despite all the difficulties 2020 has brought, our teams have shown inspiring creativity and commitment to digital excellence, setting many of our clients up for success and enabling them to continue on their digital transformation journeys at a time when digital matters more than ever before. 

Only a few months ago, Somo grabbed the Best Agency for Creativity and Innovation title in The Drum Recommends Digital awards, and in 2019, we were ranked #1 pure-play Design and Build agency in The Drum Independent Agency Census, and youngest, largest Design and Build Agency in the Econsultancy Top 100 Digital Agencies Ranking. We’re thrilled we have kept the crown on!
