Matt Humphreys, Head of Content

Beck – Colors

Three reasons.

  1. It’s a great pop song from one of the year’s great pop albums.
  2. I heard it used at our two biggest events in 2018 – it’s a really upbeat, energising track that sounds amazing over a massive sound system.
  3. Sonically, for me it captures the new world we’re entering with ICF – multi-coloured, multi-faceted and multi-national.

June Macfarlane, Senior Event Manager

Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’

It’s uplifting, motivational – a reminder that you should never stop believing in yourself or what you can achieve in life.

Kam Phullar, Senior Strategist

Ginuwine – Pony

This song encapsulates my time in the London office – it’s my We are Vista anthem and embodies both the professional and personal spirit of the agency. Also, did I mention… ponies are my spirit animal.

Max Woodworth, Head of Film

Janelle Monáe – Make Me Feel 

It’s a great funky track that’s brought a lot of fun in the office over the year. It was also one of our Christmas party anthems.

Young Fathers – Only God Knows

This track just keeps building – reminding me of the power of many voices.

Nothing but Thieves – Amsterdam

It’s a great pop/rock anthem that never fails to get me motivated!

If there were four words that told our story this year, these ones do it perfectly. We started with the biggest and most complex job in our history, and we finished stronger than ever. Never stop? Damn right we won’t.

Hugh Jackman, Keala Settle, Zac Efron, Zendaya, The Greatest Showman Ensemble – The Greatest Show

Often, when something feels right, you just know. That’s what happened with ICF, and in partnership with them, we’re taking our business to the next level.

Silk City, Dua Lipa, Diplo, Mark Ronson – Electricity

This is a feel-good tune that takes me back to the amazing summer we had – the likes of which haven’t been experienced since the ‘70s. It went on forever which was incredible – just living outdoors.

It’s all about relationships that have no limit – and when we’ve had our fill of vitamin D, that positivity of expression flows.

James Wilkins, CEO and Founder

Fleetwood Mac – Don’t Stop

This captures the positive change happening now, a lot of our clients are going transformational change it’s about staying focused on the future. Leaving the past behind and changing mindsets to take them on the journey with us.

We’ve embarked on the next stage of our journey, nothing is going to stop us now.

One Republic – Future Looks Good

This year, we’ve built yet another fantastic platform that will enable us to excel once again in the future.

It’s the most overplayed office song of 2018, but it also represents girl power. It’s all about setting new rules for yourself.
