hc-small-2 The Loerie Awards are only a few days away! We interviewed Mark Tomlinson, a founder and executive creative director of award-winning digital agency, HelloComputer. Mark is one of the judges for the digital Loeries and explains a little of what goes into the judging for these categories.

This means the standard of work might not be what we are used to in previous years where the focus was on producing the best creative product.
