Where do creative agencies get their names from? Rob and Joe of Cargo Collective (opens in new tab) decided to analyse the names of some well-known agencies and work backwards, to create this impressively complex Taxonomy of Advertising Agency Names (opens in new tab).
As the chart illustrates, agencies draw their naming inspiration from a range of sources, from the names of the founders to countries and planets, all way through to abstract concepts and biblical references.(opens in new tab)
