We love digital. We pour our heart and soul into everything we do in the digital realm. It goes without saying then that it is extremely gratifying when our hard work is acknowledged by others. The DDM team was delighted to be awarded 5 prizes at the recent 2011 Bookmark Awards.
The Bookmarks, an initiative of the Digital Media and Marketing Association, reward innovation and excellence in digital media. It was an honour to be recognised alongside other luminaries in the industry.
