The Leith Agency scoops Grand Prix and Agency of the Year at Roses Creative Awards
Launched in October last year, the campaign was created to promote the first new permanent addition to the Irn Bru stable in 35 years, and first appeared as a large-scale wrap at Glasgow Central Station. At the time of the launch A.G Barr marketing director, Adrian Troy, commented: “The ‘no sense’ campaign reinforces Irn Bru’s confident personality, unique humour and bold taste.”
