Five award wins in 2017. Who’s the DADI?

The shelves in our office are groaning under the weight of a slew of shiny new awards, DADI, Prolific North Agency of the Year, Digital Impact, Episerver …

Winning Best Large Digital Agency 2017 at the Prolific North Awards was the best possible way for us to start our awards season, which has this year again, brought us a bumper crop of wins.

In fact we won or were finalists in just about every award we entered for this year. So we must be doing something right! We’d like to thank our team, customers, partners and suppliers for the recommendations, testimonials and stories that made achieving the results below possible. The Prolific North 2017 Digital Agency of the Year award was slightly different to the other awards as it was not based on a specific client project. The judges were impressed by the way CDS demonstrated an “exemplary year of profitable and substantial growth”, the result of investment in our infrastructure and personnel, supported by a wide range of case studies that demonstrate innovation and the value we deliver to our clients and citizens in the UK.
