The Ballsies


It's a standard expectation that year on year agencies produce great work, and some individuals standout as remarkable on the job. This year saw the launch of our internal creative Awards, The Ballsies:  A celebration of the very best work from RE, and the people that make it happen. A chance to acknowledge and reward those who poured blood, sweat and tears into creating game changing work.
