Havas Creative trudges through lacklustre creative year

AGENCY REPORT CARD: Compared to its more robust media affiliate, the agency goes through the motions with little new insights or innovations that have demonstrated clear results.


Havas’ well-known Village model, which allows multi-disciplinary offerings within the Group to ‘cross-pollinate’, has arguably aided the Group through the pandemic with approximately 20% of business in 2020 picked up through this model. On top of that, Havas CX was launched, a new global offering focusing on experience and design. It all sounds great on paper but read on to find out if the agency managed to sustain its creative prowess and business growth during a tough year.

Our full Agency Report Card on Havas Creative—including 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.
