The 2021 Anvils: a love story to our community

We have a lot of reasons to love our community. They inspire us, help us do our best work, laugh (and sometimes commiserate) with us, and together we help great organizations make better marks on the world. Oh yeah, and when the stars align just right, we win awards with them. This year, at the 2021 Anvils, we were lucky enough to get a few!

Awards are cool and all, but getting to work with people awesome enough to make all this possible is what gets us really excited so we wanted to extend a huge thank you and congratulations. To our wonderful community of clients, partners, team members, and production partners (broadcast partners, audio partners, photographers - you know who you are), and ZGM friends — great work, please never leave us.
