Matt Goldhill, Creative Strategist, Mobile5

Whilst many agencies boast a fantastic Mobile capability, in reality most are still churning out standard GIFs that lead to static landing pages or uninspiring mobile sites. 

There are a handful of smaller, Mobile First agencies that have specialist developer teams and strive to produce more creative, cutting edge and more exciting advertising which truly reflects the advanced technology mobile has to offer. Traditional digital agencies should be worried because they are no longer the most innovative marketers.
