And just like that another year has gone by! And what an incredible year 2023 has been. From the glitz and glam of award ceremonies to record-breaking results, we’ve experienced a whirlwind of activities throughout the year, so we thought a roundup blog was in order.
The Arkenauts will be closing our office from Monday 25 December to Wednesday 3 January.
We’ll be back open on Thursday 4 January, refreshed and ready to strategise bigger and better campaigns! If you’d like to get in touch with us during our closure, please use this form or email email@example.com We will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible in the New Year.
A colossal shout-out to all our fantastic partners who joined the Arke adventure this year! Your incredible support has been the backbone behind our amazing journey. Get ready for an even more spectacular 2024, packed with strategy, paid media, creative brilliance, and digital excellence – it’s going to be a blast!
And now, without further ado, let’s dive into some of our highlights from this year!
It was fantastic to expand the trophy cabinet this year, as we won three awards! Our wins at the UK Paid Media Awards, UK Agency Awards and The Sussex Business Awards mark 5 wins in 14 months, and 6 in two years, an incredible achievement for our ever-growing agency.
We won Paid Social Campaign of the Year at the UK Paid Media Awards for our work with Shay and Blue, generating a 1009% ROAS and their biggest month in online revenue in a single week. But the record-breaking didn’t stop there, we generated a whopping 3875% ROAS for our clients Joint Living which resulted in winning The Campaign Effectiveness Award at the UK Agency Awards in September. Lastly, finishing the year on a high at the end of November, we were recognised for The Creative Industries Award at The Sussex Business Awards.
And awards aren’t all we’ve grown this year. We’ve celebrated some long-lasting partnerships, forged on exciting ideas and brilliant results, including a four-year anniversary for some! Not only that, but we’ve expanded into new markets with new partnerships, including international charity, real estate, SaaS and private healthcare to name a few! With 2024 on the horizon, and some exciting opportunities lined up, we can’t wait for you to see what’s next.
As always, we’re honoured to have continued working with numerous charities and passion projects. We love giving back to our community, so to work with five non-profit organisations and charities this year has been a real pleasure. Take a look at the work we did for AllSorts Youth Project to support them in redesigning their corporate training material.
This year marked six whole years of Arke. From humble beginnings to now celebrating one whole year in our new central Brighton HQ, we couldn’t be prouder of the Arkenauts for all they have achieved. This year has been great, but next year is going to be exceptional, and we can’t wait to take you on the journey with us.
But it wouldn’t be Arke Wrapped without a bit about us and our team!
In 2023, we:
Signed up to become an Endometriosis Friendly Employer
Consumed 6241 coffees

Had 32 air-con battles
Had five new Arkenauts join the team
Five fabulous promotions in the team
We won three glittering major industry awards

An equally terrifying Halloween get-together
And a very merry Christmas party!
And that’s a wrap! With lots of exciting things already in the works, we can’t wait to unveil our best year yet in 2024.
