In 2014, our top creative flagship brand Scholz & Friends was named Agency of the Year at the prestigious Red Dot Awards which honours top design achievements worldwide. And for its top international client, Opel, the agency developed ‘Umparken im Kopf’ (Repark your Mind), a mindshift for the brand and the campaign of the year, which generated extensive awareness and coverage across all media. At the most important creative award show in Germany, the Art Directors Club (ADC), Scholz & Friends was ranked No.2 with work for Deutsche Bank, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and Greenpeace.
