Ideas-based independent advertising agency Ugly has announced it has been appointed as the agency of record for online mortgage broker uno Home Loans, following a four-way pitch.
Ugly will lead all of uno’s brand advertising work, while incumbent agency Archibald Williams will remain working with uno on content creation.

Hazelle Klønhammer, co-founder and managing director of Ugly, said: “It’s refreshing to work with such progressive clients who totally value creativity. Nothing is more gratifying than working with a new brand as it forges its future.
