Quotes
"eYeka complements, not competes, with conventional creative agencies. We have case studies of eYeka competitions yielding the key consumer insight that an agency then developed into a fully-fledged campaign. eYeka is good news for agencies as well as marketers." Trevor Moodie, Partner and Strategist, the Dept.
"As our clients worldwide can testify, there's a lot of value to be had in building an ongoing relationship with thousands of creative collaborators worldwide. It's a real win-win, not only do brands get hundreds or thousands of insightful ideas to guide their marketing, but those who might not otherwise get a chance to work with the best agencies and brands get a chance to see their work rewarded." Matthieu Jacomin, Global Business Director, eYeka
