The agency's revenue for the year ended December 2011 was up 55% on 2010, meaning the agency is on target for its plan to grow turnover by 50% a year for three consecutive years.

Canyon managing director Jonathan Boyne said: "We are seeing success in EMEA and global projects and are consciously targeting premium brands with a global presence."

Wins in 2012 have included an event for Procter & Gamble in January, and work with clients on experiential events leading up to the Olympics.

The agency is currently recruiting for ten positions, including a creative director, following five new appointments in the past 12 months, including Samantha Lafferty as head of live communication.
