This award comes on the heels of significant momentum for Battery this past year having been recognized as Boutique Agency of the Year by ThinkLA, a top 20 Fastest Growing Private Company by the Los Angeles Business Journal and recently honored by the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, the D&AD Association, PromaxGames and The One Show adding to a long list of industry accomplishments for this independent agency founded in 2013.

To be honored 3 times by Ad Age in our short 5-year history as an agency is immensely gratifying,” said Anson Sowby, CEO, and co-founder of Battery.
“Humbled and honored by this award. Small is the new big and we couldn’t be happier to be in such great company,” said Philip Khosid, CCO, and co-founder of Battery.
