Buffalo 7, PowerPoint presentation design agency, is officially an award-winning agency after receiving Creative Industries Business of the Year 2018 award at the Amazon Growing Business Awards 2018.Since refocusing as a specialist presentation design agency in 2014, Buffalo 7 has gone from strength to strength. The agency grown at a rapid rate since then, and their focus on innovation in presentation design, storytelling, and development has made the large full-service agencies sit up and take notice.
After being shortlisted Buffalo 7 team attended an interview in London where they spoke to the judges about what Buffalo 7 does and why the agency is so unique.
PowerPoint is often seen as the villain, but, as the specialist presentation agency always said, it’s an amazing piece of design software when you really know how to use it.
Rich Barnes, Managing Director at Buffalo 7, said: “How wonderful to receive this award for all our hard work. For thinking different. For not seeing PowerPoint as a hindrance, but an opportunity. For re-shaping client thinking into storytelling, not presenting. For making clients find us, understand us and love us. For rethinking how to structure and deliver a PowerPoint brief and encouraging clients to try new things.
“For having fun with creative, and innovating constantly in how we bring that to life through an expert understanding of one piece of software that most people see as 'crap'.”
The awards, presented by Sally Phillips, took place at The Porter Tun at The Brewery in London and the announcements began after dinner.
Chris Tomlin, Director of Communications at Buffalo 7, who accepted the award on behalf of the whole team, said: “As a team, we pride ourselves on exploring every avenue of creativity throughout the client journey.
“Honestly, it took some guts from the judges to choose us above some of the more ‘traditional’ creative disciplines, like video, art and branding.
“But once they understood our unwavering commitment to put creativity at the heart of what we do, our unique approach to every single project shone through.
“We never settle for a good job. It’s in our DNA to innovate until we’ve produced something amazing to help our clients tell their stories.
I was delighted to accept the award on behalf of our Buffalo family, who fully deserve this prestigious accolade.”
Gary Corrin, Client Services Director at Buffalo 7, added: “For a design agency that specialises in presentations, and primarily using a piece of software that other design agencies refuse to touch, it’s an immense achievement and we want to shout it from the rooftops.”
