About AREA 23

AREA 23 is the world’s most awarded healthcare agency, year after year. Its “What If” business model goes beyond agency sloganims and provides a real framework to do breakthrough creative. Just ask any one of the more than 500 entrepreneurial, passionate, curious and bold people who work there. The agency, led by President Renée Mellas and Chief Creative Officer Tim Hawkey, has undergone significant growth in the last seven years, increasing its size seven-fold under their leadership.

AREA 23’s campaigns are consistently recognized with top advertising industry awards and honors. In 2017, Med Ad News named AREA 23 “Agency of the Year,” Most Creative Agency” and “Most Admired Agency”—the only time that any agency won the show’s top three awards at once. That is, until, AREA 23 did it again in 2018. AREA 23 was also recognized as “Agency of The Year” in 2017 by Cannes Lions Health, Medical Marketing & Media, The Global Awards and Clio Heath. AREA 23 is unique in being recognized outside of the healthcare space, taking home Lions in the Innovation, Outdoor, Print & Publishing, Glass, PR, Direct and Mobile categories.
