Thompson described WE ARE Pi as “our kind of agency; creative, restless and non-conformists”.
The head of the agency, Paddy Garvey, said working with Paddy Power gave his company the opportunity to “let off some steam and cause some trouble. In this case we are targeting the bad guys, and hope to spark change by making noise.”
Among the leading companies on WE ARE Pi's client list are Wrangler Jeans, Coca Cola, Lego and Under Armour.
