Red Dot: Agency of the Year 2018

In the Red Dot Award: Communication Design, one studio stands out with its high-quality and elaborate creative works every year. It wins over the competition’s jury with multiple entries at once. Banda Agency has succeeded in convincing the experts with projects of above-average design quality and consequently received the honorary title "Red Dot: Agency of the Year 2018", paying tribute to this achievement.

Based in Kyiv, Banda Agency is a full-service creative agency founded in 2011 by Pavel Vrzhesch (Creative Director), Egor Petrov (Head of Art) and Yaroslav Serdyuk (Strategy Director). Rapidly, the studio entered the top five most effective independent agencies in the world, according to international Effie Index, and reached the number one position in 2013. It was furthermore recognised as the most creative agency in Ukraine in 2014 by the All-Ukrainian Advertising Coalition.

Within only seven years, the creatives received more than a hundred prizes and were able to win over renowned clients, among them Comfy, Uber, Puma and the Eurovision Song Contest. The team of 36 members realises impressive projects from the fields of food and beverages, telecommunications, sports goods, retail and fast-moving consumer goods, to name but a few.
