A SOUTH Devon creative agency has won a prestigious international award for creative excellence.
DNA Advertising Ltd of Teignmouth won a gold award for its recent advertising concept for Ettinger, a London-based designer, manufacturer, e-retailer and Royal warrant holder of luxury leather goods and accessories.
It won the print/packaging: magazine advertising category at the 42nd annual Creativity International Awards.
The award was one of only 24 given to a UK-based creative company from thousands of worldwide entries.
The company, which currently has 11 employees, provides a comprehensive design and marketing service to businesses.
DNA moved to Bitton House, Teignmouth, from Torquay in September.
Managing director Paul Mabin said: "Being located in South Devon has proved to be a benefit for DNA. Not only is it an attractive place to work, it also offers the chance to provide cutting edge creative solutions at very competitive rates compared to those charged in London.
"This is just one reason why DNA has been working with companies like Ettinger."
Mr Mabin added: "DNA isn't the only agency to claim to think differently, but our combination of South Devon studio with London quality talent and broad skill-set, together with our aptitude for thinking big and working proactively, is a clear differentiator. We like to call it 'effective creative'."
