Stratton Craig

"With so many people talking about content and how to measure its effectiveness, it makes sense for us, as a written content agency, to support the DBA Design Effectiveness Awards. The awards encourage organisations to position design and content as exciting, innovative and commercially viable engagement tools, regardless of the channel, brand or audience. This objective is what links Stratton Craig and the DBA." 

Darren Clare, CEO, Stratton Craig
