‘Raising Eyebrows and Subscriptions’ is one of the most successful campaigns in UM London’s history, and has won trophies at every major awards competition in the industry, including the Cannes Lions, Festival of Media Global Awards and M&M Global Awards.

Russell Place, Managing Director and Neil Peace, Group Digital Strategy Director of UM London, said:

“Our work for The Economist brings Better Science, Art and Outcomes together in a data-driven, dynamic and highly collaborative operating model, including agency partners, technology partners and, of course, our clients at The Economist”
