Creative agency Fluid Ideas is in the running for four accolades in a national awards scheme which recognises digital excellence.

Derby-based Fluid Ideas has been shortlisted in the Drum Recommends Digital Awards, which are based entirely on client feedback.

The Drum Recommends is a platform which enables brands to rate the services they receive from agencies.

These ratings are collated to recognise the leading teams specialising in digital services and campaigns, culminating in the awards.

The award winners will be announced at a virtual ceremony on Thursday, October 15.

Fluid Ideas has an overall rating of nine out of 10 and has been nominated for honours for its effectiveness, digital animation, web design and web development.

The full-service agency, which has 47 staff, focuses on operations such as branding and campaigns, graphic and website design, computer-generated imagery, 3D animation and video, photography, copywriting, digital marketing, content management and social media.

Its client base spans sectors including healthcare, retirement living, property, professional services, education, finance, leisure and hospitality.

Sarah Bowler, support and delivery team lead at Fluid Ideas, said: “It’s a very special achievement to be nominated in so many categories. What really matters most is that the awards are based on impartial feedback from our clients.

“We feel lucky to have such a lovely group of clients, a mixture of long-standing partnerships and exciting new relationships. Furthermore, we’re really proud of our whole team for their creativity, passion and hard work throughout the year, resulting in these nominations.

“Everyone involved is really excited for the awards to see how we get on.”

Fluid Ideas’ digital director Colin Mitchell said: “We’ve added a significant amount of development across our web projects this year, including new transformational websites and growing our existing clients’ platforms.

“This has resulted in some great results and growth for our clients, and it’s very pleasing to have the team’s hard work acknowledged.”
