2017 will be remembered as the year that changed perceptions and put ‘ull in the spotlight. We’ve had front row seats in the Fruit Market for what must be one of the most exciting, proudest and most Instagram-able 365-day periods in our city’s history. It scrubs up pretty well nowadays doesn’t it?

All in all, 2017’s been pretty great for us too. We’ve celebrated our 2nd birthday (they grow up so fast!), knocked through walls to expand our office TWICE, and finished off the year with a team of 14 weirdos after starting it with just the eight. Not bad going.

From full rebrands to hosting events on yachts to climbing the Humber Bridge in the name of PR, we’ve been lucky enough to work on a tonne of exciting and creative projects. In May, we attended our first ever marketing awards night, and from what we can remember, we had a damn good time.

So for all of that and more, we owe a huge thank you to every one of our fantastic clients. You guys are the reason we do it, and the reason we’ll continue to do it even better in 2018!

And if you’re reading it, thanks to the Pace team for being super-talented, and a genuine pleasure to be around every day. Now get sharing this blog, unless you want a hostile email in your inbox…

We’re also super proud of our Marketing Director Shirin, who in June was crowned the Barclays Yorkshire Women in Business Rising Star. On a more personal note, we’ve had our first Pace baby, two engagements and several dog visits. Lots and lots of dogs.

In between all of that, we’ve barely stopped for breath, but we wouldn’t want it any other way.

So thanks again – we really mean it. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year, and we’ll see you again in 2018 refreshed and ready to knock it out of the park.

Over and out.
