We are a growth-focused media agency driven by innovation and creativity.
Founded in London in 1990, we were the first media agency to offer strategic and creative planning at a time when the industry was about buying cheaply and quickly.
Our founders saw a bright future where smart thinking and clever planning could help brands grow faster than their competitors.
Over the many years that have followed, we have continued to build on this defining ethic — with our evolution shaped by a continual investment in thought leadership. And we continue to ensure that our capability and approach evolve in line with changes in media, data, technology, commerce, society, and legislation.
Today, with over 100 offices in 74 countries, we continue to create remarkable campaigns that lead to remarkable growth – using the extending canvas of data and technology.
We create campaigns that help brands move beyond incremental improvements and leap ahead of their competitors.

Our clients find this potent mix of buying power and exceptional planning and creative credentials a compelling proposition.

Isabel Massey, Global Media Director, Diageo

Our story is naturally one of leaps and bounds.
David Pattison, Nick Horswell and Jonathan Durden launched Pattison Horswell Durden (PHD) in London with a clear proposition that spoke to clients who valued prize strategy.
Our early press ads captured our unique blend of fearless creativity with strategic planning and buying.
Our planning-led approach attracted our founding client, The Guardian Newspaper, who remains a client today.
We launched Drum, the first sponsorship, partnership and content agency in the UK.
We opened our first non-UK office and went on to grow our international network to more than 100 offices worldwide.
Our parent company, Omnicom Media Group, was formed — allowing our clients to benefit from our unique approach to media planning, without compromising on the buying.
We launched Source (now Omni Studio), a proprietary global operating system that connects our people through a gamified system.
We were named Eurobest Media Network of the Year for the second consecutive year.
Today, we have over 6,000 employees in more than 100 offices and work with some of the world’s largest advertisers.

PHD was launched as the first planning-led media agency in the UK.
In 2016 we are still renowned for being the UK's most forward-thinking media agency; we challenge convention, break new ground in communications thinking and ultimately look to find a better way in everything we do.
We are the first media agency to have been awarded three D&AD pencils and to have won back-to-back Cannes Lions over two years. We were named 'Network of the Year' at the 2015 Campaign Media Awards. Most recently we were named Agency of the Year 2016 by both Media Week and Marketing Week.
PHD London was the founding office which is now part of an 80+ office global network, home of PHD's worldwide management team and part of Omnicom Media Group. Our planning-centric approach, coupled with the buying power we offer through Omnicom Media Group’s centralised negotiation point OPera, has attracted a diverse client list
