We labelled it a “sleeping giant” in WPP’s portfolio in 2019, but AKQA was firmly thrust into the spotlight in 2020 as it was announced it would merge with bigger sister Grey and looks set to take the driver's seat in the newly formed AKQA Group.

What movements preceded this deal, and how did the four-office APAC agency manage pandemic pains? Our full Agency Report Card on AKQA—with the overall grade plus a detailed analysis and scores for management; innovation; clients and business; creativity; and people and diversity—is available only to Campaign Asia-Pacific members.
