Unilever have been an important client for us ever since we started back in ’93 (We’re 25!) and we’re proud to work with them on their insight needs, innovation goals, and packaging initiatives.


Each year, their insight teams are globally invited to submit nominations for the CMI Excellence Awards to recognize specific partners, amidst the hundreds of suppliers they work with, that have gone the extra mile…

And this year, Tess and Chris from our wonderful London team were nominated, and our very own Chris Aukett was selected as one of the overall winners of the 2018 CMI Partner Excellence Award.

In sharing the good news, the CMI Leadership Team commented,


Your contribution to the CMI Packaging Insight Squad this year has been significant in actioning future-facing packaging solutions… Your levels of commitment to the role have been exceptional and the immense expertise you have in design and research are highly valued by the team

TBP London celebrated the amazing news in style
Cheers to Chris - top shelf!

We’re overjoyed by this incredible accomplishment; in the words of our founder, John, “delivering the very highest level of service to clients is at the heart of TBP’s DNA” and we’re thrilled to see resident TBP-ers recognized for just that.


And if that wasn’t enough, we found ourselves the only qual agency amongst the 20 winners, which is a real honor for the company!

A big congratulations to Tess and to our award-winner, Chris — thanks for doing us proud! There’s a lot of excellence here at The Big Picture and we’re delighted to see it shine.
