PHD was launched as the first planning-led media agency in the UK.

In 2016 we are still renowned for being the UK's most forward-thinking media agency; we challenge convention, break new ground in communications thinking and ultimately look to find a better way in everything we do.

We are the first media agency to have been awarded three D&AD pencils and to have won back-to-back Cannes Lions over two years. We were named 'Network of the Year' at the 2015 Campaign Media Awards. Most recently we were named Agency of the Year 2016 by both Media Week and Marketing Week.

PHD London was the founding office which is now part of an 80+ office global network, home of PHD's worldwide management team and part of Omnicom Media Group. Our planning-centric approach, coupled with the buying power we offer through Omnicom Media Group’s centralised negotiation point OPera, has attracted a diverse client list
