This year we are excited to introduce the Agency of the Year Vertex Award. Each year we will recognize two agencies, one Large (3 or more offices) and one Boutique (2 or less offices). The trophy is given to the studio, agency, or in-house team that receives the most overall points for wins across all categories.

I am delighted to announce that the first Agency of the Year Vertex Award – Large (3 or more offices) is Equator.

Equator is an international branding agency with offices in Cincinnati, Manchester, Chicago. Founded in 2003, the 300+ strong global team is led by Global Creative Director Michael Duffy.
