The sixth annual Wirehive 100 awards, celebrating the exceptional Southern digital agencies outside of London, recognised three of Bristol and Bath’s most talented digital businesses last month.

Having been nominated for three awards, UX specialists Nomensa stole the show, winning not just one but two awards – one for Best B2B Website of the Year for its work with Virgin Media Business and, in the Digital Innovation category, for its work with the National Trust.

“It’s a fantastic achievement to celebrate two wins in the Wirehive 100 awards this year”


Speaking of the double win, Nomensa’s CEO, Simon Norris says: “It was an honour to even be nominated and it’s a fantastic achievement to celebrate two wins in the Wirehive 100 awards this year. We’re very proud of the talent operating within Nomensa and it’s always hugely satisfying to see our work and clients recognised for delivering extraordinary digital experiences for their customers.

“We always strive to think outside of the ordinary in order to deliver exceptional usability and accessibility for audiences with all levels of capabilities. Our creations are always carefully crafted following strategic planning which we’re pleased to say was noted by the judges, particularly in the website of the year category.”

Alongside Nomensa, Bristol-based digital marketing specialists DigiRank won the award for Best Use of Search (pictured left) and Bath-based CRM specialists Armadillo went away with the award for Email Campaign of the Year (pictured right) for its McDonald’s Win Win campaign which achieved a whopping click-to-open rate of 56%.

Armadillo’s Commercial Director Chris Thurling comments: “We’re thrilled that it took the top spot and are particularly proud that the judges recognised our great use of data blended with our proven eCRM strategy. This was a real team effort and also celebrates a true partnership with a great, pioneering client for whom we’ve been able to achieve some of our best CRM campaigns.”
