NEW YORK — Code and Theory, a renowned digital-fist creative agency, has been awarded a Bronze Lion in the Entertainment Lions’ “Talent: Visual Story Telling” category at this year’s Cannes International Festival of Creativity, for its work on Burger King’s Grilled Dogs product launch.

As a result of all the hard work put in by our team, the client, and our partner agencies, Code and Theory can proudly say that our work is now among the best in show.”
