Bartle Bogle Hegarty retains Barclays UK account
Creative agency Bartle Bogle Hegarty London (BBH) has retained Barclays as a client following a review earlier this year. The Drum has reported BBH London is working on repositioning the British bank.
Karen Martin, managing director of BBH London, told the magazine the agency was “incredibly proud” of the work it had done for Barclays over a period of 17 years, but that they would “never rest on our laurels”. She said BBH had pitched against some of the best agencies in town but that BBH’s “deep expertise and future-facing skills proved that we continue to be the best creative partner for Barclays as it enters its next chapter”.

Google bans six million ads every day. That’s according to its Bad Ads Report 2018, which reported taking down a total of 2.3 billion misleading ads and one million bad accounts – twice as many as in 2017.
Google defines bad ads as ‘misleading, inappropriate, or harmful ads’ that violates its advertising policies and pose a threat to users, Google’s partners, and the “sustainability of the open web itself.“
It also worked with White Ops and the FBI to take down an ad fraud ring that generated over 3 billion bids daily at its peak.
