It’s the fifth year in a row that the home of Ringan Ledwidge and Danny Kleinman has been far and away the most respected production company among its peers in the Commercials 30 survey. It’s admired for its “consistently good work,” its “great roster, nice people” and for being “always brilliant.” Others point to the fact that “it’s got Ringan Ledwidge” while others vote for it because its “just very good at advertising.”

Blink retains its place in the hearts of its fellow producers by “always coming up with great new talent” as well as for its “longevity” and “quality.” “Great work and a creative hub” says one voter, “the one to watch” says another. One admirer cites its “excellent development of digital” while another describes Blink as “Visionaries. experts in diversifying their business into areas outside of commercial production.”

=2. Gorgeous
“A class act” is how one voter describes Gorgeous, “amazing work and a great roster” is how others sum it up.
