Innovators and creatives recognised at NEWi Awards

Leading innovators, creatives and technologies transforming our regional economy gathered at Foghorn Brewhouse for the 2018 NEWi Awards for Digital Creativity on Thursday, 27 September 2018.

Fifteen award winners were chosen from more than 100 entries across 13 digital and creative categories and two merit awards, reflecting the talent in regional Australia.

Amongst winners on the evening was Newcastle creative experience agency, Enigma, which took out two accolades.

Recognised for their branding work with long-term client, McDonald Jones Homes, the agency was awarded Best Online Video – Branding for their piece that recreated part of a real customer’s home for a Dad who was working away to create a family reunion and demonstrate the power of McDonald Jones’ ability to help people Find Yourself at Home.

Enigma was also awarded the NEWi Awards Best Digital Agency on the night. The award recognises the best marketing, digital or advertising agency in Newcastle.

Enigma’s Executive Director, Peter Chapman said the awards recognise the masses of effort that go into solving client’s problems every day at 21 Bolton Street.

“We are a close-knit team that works super hard to make great work that works for our clients and it’s an awesome feeling to be recognised among our peers,” Peter said.

“We were delighted to be shortlisted with such stiff competition and to take out two awards is a bonus. Really, it’s our clients and our people that we have to thank for it all. Without both of them, we’d just be a nice office with a couple of shiny things.”

Other winners on the night included:

The industry recognition comes amidst a time of strong growth for Enigma, having bolstered the Newcastle team with several new project wins, new staff members and having recently hosted The Brand Summit at which 220 people got together to talk about all things brand.
