Ad Age's 2016 Agency A-List Standouts: Dieste and More

U.S. Hispanic shop Dieste boosted revenue and head count by 20%, and the shop was victorious in the biggest Hispanic pitch of the year, AT&T Mobility, plus Miller Lite and DirecTV. Powered by Dieste's insights about Latinos' penchant for almonds, Hershey's With Almonds sales to Hispanics grew by 18% but were flat in the general market. Creative awards flowed in for a Dallas Pets Alive campaign that temporarily gave homeless dogs the names of trending topics like "Kim Kardashian's Butt" and "Celebrity Nude Pix"; with all that social media exposure, dog adoptions quadrupled. And Dieste scored in the top 5% of parent Omnicom's employee engagement survey.
