"We are very proud of the awards won because they confirm that companies and brands can stand out from the competition and reach their consumers by using new technologies and innovative communication channels. Technology allows us to push the boundaries on the brand-consumer line and that is why the message and content must be tailored to a specific moment. That is, of course, the basis, but the real challenge lays in creating fun content that reaches the right people in different contexts. Each new platform puts us in front of a new challenge. It is up to us to respond to these challenges by creating a digital map on which brands will be positioned so that they are remembered, ”said Danka Trbojević, Managing Director of the Drive agency.
