About Lucky Generals Ltd

Lucky Generals are a creative communications agency producing impactful communications strategies and big ideas for brands.

The company, with just a few dozen staff, has produced key campaigns for the likes of Betfair and Amazon. Despite only being formed in 2013, the agency is growing at a startling rate.

In one day in 2015, the agency doubled in size when it won accounts with Twitter and Paddy Power, each worth around £20m.

In 2016, the founders, Danny Brooke-Taylor, Helen Calcraft and Andy Nairn, announced they had hired Nik Upton from agency Joint to set up a communications group, Lucky Enterprises, and invest in PR and digital start-ups so clients enjoy a full suite of marketing services.

Lucky Generals have sold to TBWA and the new structure will see TBWA form a sub-group in the UK, consisting of Lucky Generals and TBWA\London, where both will continue to operate as two separate brands.

One of the core principles is ‘we are all lucky generals’ - this means no discipline outranks another. There’s no hierarchy or politics, no one is above plumping cushions or making tea. They don’t encourage greedy competitiveness and are always a team.
Fair Deal

Every year, they operate a staff-voted award for the best creative campaign. This must be based on its impact, creativity, success and fame. It’s a military-themed award customised to represent the particularly creative idea.
