Kiwi Creative digital agency Resn has been named ‘Agency of the Year' for the second year running at the 2018 Awwwards Conference in Berlin.

Web competition body Awwwards recognises the talent and effort of the best web designers, developers and agencies in the world.

Resn was chosen from a field of the world's leading digital agencies by the Awwwards jury, a global panel of experts that represents the most important designers, creative directors, bloggers and agencies in the industry. Resn's second Agency of the Year title caps off a productive period for the company, which included major campaigns for brands like adidas, Ford and MailChimp.

In May, it expanded into Asia, opening an office in Shanghai, China.

The development of its proprietary technologies, such as CAKE—an interactive video platform seen in projects like Mailchimp's Veilhymn, Pocket Mustang and, most recently, FAFSWAGVOGUE.COM - The Interactive Documentary—has been a major contributing factor in Resn's success. Resn has also extended its reach beyond the web, developing hybrid physical-digital installations, including two projects for adidas, Speedfactory and Kick Creator.

“With adidas, we worked with their internal teams to build eye-popping, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping experiences,” says Resn Amsterdam creative director Kris Hermansson. Rik Campbell says, “As a team, we keep on top of globally inspiring work.  We share, we learn, we strategise and then we infuse ‘the Resn', to deliver deeper engagement. Resn takes this approach with every project and client and we are proud that the world has embraced our efforts.” Despite its successes over the last year, the agency isn't looking back.

“If anything, 2018 is going to be even bigger,” says global creative director Steve Le Marquand.

“We have a lot of exciting projects in the pipeline, including a Resn team that is exploring the future of digitally enhanced physical retail. We are so pleased to be recognised as Agency of the Year, and it is truly humbling to know that in the bigger scheme of things, we are just getting started. We look forward to sharing even more work with you all soon. Stay tuned.”

Established in Wellington in 2004, Resn has grown to become a popular digital interactive agency.

Resn focuses on creating work that redefines what's possible.

Awwwards is a premier web awards competition, aiming to recognise the talent and effort of the best web designers, developers and agencies in the world.
