How can you inspire meaningful policy change with creativity and technology?

We believe that delivering a message in the form of a total experience can help move the needle on the policy issues that shape our world. We work with companies, industry associations, NGOs and non-profits to combine our deep experience with EU policymaking with innovative advocacy campaigns that people pay attention to. Here’s how you can work with us.

Strategy & creative workshops.

Ideas are always better when built through true partnership. We like to think together with clients in a workshop format to nail down strategic foundations and walk away will full formed ideas that we (or just the client) can start executing the next day.

2020’s “most workshoppable” topics: virtual event strategy, digital and social media strategy, LinkedIn for EU public affairs, creative campaign ideation, brand (re-) positioning and re-branding, video production. Also: virtual workshops on running virtual workshops🤪

Custom virtual & hybrid events.

Connecting remotely was a must in 2020, and hybrid events are set to become a mainstay as soon as we sort out that virus thing. Like it says on the front page of this website, combining the digital and physical is kind of our thing.

We help clients dream up unique event formats and series to engage their worlds and then help them make the best of what technology has to offer to actually pull them off.

Sometimes we do the A-Z of it all, and sometimes we’re just there as thinking partners and the client does the rest. We’re cool with either. Just ask FoodDrinkEurope, the Society of Audiovisual Authors, Eurometaux or the Interactive Software Federation of Europe.

Also check out the 8-minute cut with EU bubble virtual event moderators where we we covered the ups and downs of virtual events and what we can expect across 2021 and take in a post-event social snippet from a recent event we helped produce for FoodDrinkEurope.

To make events work even harder, we craft custom event centrepieces that tell stories and leave audiences with messages they won’t soon forget. The video below covers the European Parliament’s first escape game, which we built for EFPIA (Europe’s pharma companies) and a recruitment game for the Antwerp police department launching in H1 of 2021.

Below you’ll find a closer look at EFPIA’s European Parliament Exhibition.

Social and digital media strategy and campaigns.

We work primarily with senior-level clients to add strategic rigour to the their digital and social efforts. From the daily social drumbeat to full-fledged campaigns with fresh content formats, our approach is about adding value for our clients where it make sense and helping them help themselves when THAT makes sense.

In 2020, we were proud to kick off extended collaborations with Novartis, FoodDrinkEurope and EUROPEN for social strategy and content, microsite development as well as campaign ideation and execution.

Check out these two easy ways to structure your year on social – we typically suggest clients handle their own daily drumbeat and turn to us for help executing topic or policy-specific mini-campaigns.

Video production and graphic design.

Beautiful stories need beautiful visuals so when it comes to producing video and graphic design, we choose partners we love to work with and who always deliver quality. Our sister agency Shtick has stood by our side across a range of projects from rebranding the global NGO ICLEI, to developing a fresh look and feel for FoodDrinkEurope’s SME awards scheme to building a full on escape game for a police department.

On the video side, we’re lucky to have a roster of directors, videographers and editors to match every possible creative route.

Across 2020, we’ve grown to become experts in remote video interview production like these:

But we’re no strangers to bigger projects like full scale shoots like this video ad for The Park, the launch of our open air classroom Buitenklas.

…or even motion graphic explainers like this one for FoodDrinkEurope.
