A word from our clients
Cancer Research UK worked with Ave on our flagship fundraising gala ball. From start to finish the level of service was exceptional. They listened to our needs taking care to really understand the brand and our audience. They created some of the most innovative pieces of work we have ever presented to our guests and were able to refresh the look and feel of a 10 year event with such ease. It was a pleasure to work with them and Cancer Research UK can’t wait to work with them again.
High Value Supporter Partnerships / Cancer Research UK
We worked with Ave on a high profile campaign that had sudden changes in creative direction, huge numbers of deliverables and deadlines that were absolutely brutal. They managed to float above all of the turmoil with a smile on their faces and create a campaign that smashed all of our targets and was one of the most effective creatives we’ve had. I would work with them again in a heartbeat.
