Quiz: Match the manifesto to the ad agency

Sometimes what an advertising agency does looks confusing.

Media and creative shops usually post their manifesto, a clear declaration of their purpose and business, in the “What We Do” or “About” section on their company website. But when freelance journalist Harry Wallop went to agency AKQA’s website in hoping to figure out what it does, he simply couldn’t understand the description.

“I genuinely don’t know,” he wrote on Twitter. “And can’t find anything on its site to elucidate me.”

Wallop is not alone. This reporter also found a few agency manifestos from company websites that walk the line between being specific and vague. Can you match them to the corresponding shop? Take the quiz and see answers below.
