Hello, Γεια σου, مرحبا,

We are Iliès and Angeliki, an international creative team based in Hamburg. What are you after?

I need a concept.
I need a team.
No idea why I'm here.

You have no idea why you are here.

Maybe it's fate, or maybe it's Google. Whatever the case, you are here now so you might as well make the most of it. Have a look at who we are and what we do. Or just go back to The Internet.

About

We are an award-winning creative team. Hamburg-based but working internationally. We believe all industries could benefit from bringing more creativity into their challenge-solving process. And not all of those challenges need to be advertising-related. We love making ideas for the real world. Work that matters to people - whether it’s a campaign, a short film, a new product, or a new experience.

Get an idea of what this means to us by exploring the rest of this site. Or, even better, get in touch.

Ain’t nobody got time for that, jump to work, or jump to brands.

You need a team that will shut up and do as they're told.

Nope, we will not. If we feel that something does not make sense, we will tell you. If you have reasons to want it that way, we will listen. We will not necessarily agree. But we will never let that stand in the way of finding a solution. Talk to us.

You need a team that is cheap.

But we are not. We aim for value and quality. And both of these things cost time and money 🤷.

×

You need a team that has done this before.

We have worked with different types of brands and industries. The following list is not comprehensive but it should be enough to give you a clue: 🏎 BMW (X, i, M, pretty much across the whole range), ⚽️ Adidas, 🎗 Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, 📺 Canal+, 💙 Unicef, 📰 Innocence In Danger, 🍿 Netflix, 💄 Labello, 💊 GSK, ✏️ Designworks, 🍋 Lemonaid, 👍🏻 Facebook, 🕹 Cloud9, 🦩Miami Ad School, 🔍Google, 🐧 Penguin Random House, 🎧 World Circuit, 🚘 Renault/Dacia, 🏹 Strongbow, 🚁 Skai, 🤘 FC St Pauli, 💡 Der Spiegel, 🌈 Billy Boy, 🐟 Tetra, 👞 Red Wing Shoes, 🍍 Haribo.

You need a team that takes over daily business.

Not a career-goal per se, but if all the CDs are away, everybody is sick at the same time, or in general you are short on people and full on tasks, we can help.

You need a team that has a story.

The year was 2009. The place was Miami Ad School Europe. In 2011 we started working together as an Art/Copy team in Serviceplan International. We took a break in 2015 to pursue different dreams. But we kept working on projects together on our own free will. Apparently, even after hundreds of hours of brainstorming, pitching, writing, designing, developing and a whole lotta night-shifting, we still liked each other. In the past 10 years we have worked with different international brands, helping them make money and building meaningful connections with their audiences. Today we are still doing that - only better, wiser, faster and on a freelance basis. Don't take our word for it, try it out.

You need a team that can tell a story.

We have told a lot of different stories in the past. Both as a team but also during our time apart. Stories about drivers, athletes, designers, esports players, flying cars, rock 'n roll football, human rights... Do you have a story that needs to be told? Let us know.

×

You need a team that handles production.

We'd be happy to. We love concepts and ideas as much as we enjoy making them happen. You can check out examples of productions we handled ourselves here and here.

×

You need a team that works internationally.

Athens, Algiers, Paris, Amsterdam, New York, Boston, Madrid, Thessaloniki, Nijmegen. These are places we lived, studied, worked, or were born in.
We speak 5.5 languages (6+ during happy hours) and understand quite a few different cultures and markets. We are based in beautiful, free, and Hanseatic Hamburg, but we've been working internationally for more than 10 years.

×

You need a concept that is BIG.

Big enough to be a film, a headline, a web special and a banner? Possibly PoS, giveaways and PR too? Alright, how much time you got? Let's map it out!

×

You need a concept that is cheap, fast and superawesome.

Sorry, pick two.

×

You just need an Art/Copy team.

It must be your lucky day. Iliès is Art and Angeliki is Copy. You can check out their work here and here.

×

You need a concept that wins awards.

Emmys, Oscars, Golden Globes, Palm D'Ors. We never won any of that. But we would very much like to. If your ambition is to create something on that level, we'd love to make it happen with you.

×

You just need a film.

Excellent! We like films. Like, a lot. We have created content for TV, web, social, branded content, music videos, short film series. Plus, Iliès is officially a filmmaker since 2015, with a lot of production experience and a feature film in the making. You can check the work we do here and here .

But enough about us. Where will it play and who's meant to watch it? Tell us more!

×

You need a concept that changes nothing.

Hmm. Tempting. No-changers are easy to find. Super-scalable. But there's already a huge supply of those out there. We'll pass.

×

You need a concept that changes something.

But what? An experience? A brand's perception? Customer behavior? The world? Whatever it is, it sounds big, complex and exciting. We are in!

×

You need a concept that makes headlines.

Cool, what should the headline say? Nevermind, we can figure that out together.

×

You need a concept that sells stuff.

A product? A lifestyle? An event? We are all up for setting clear goals. Even better when those goals come with a plan and a creative strategy. But even if they don't, we can help with that too.

×

You need a concept that wins a pitch.

Makes sense. Much better than losing one. We’ve been on both sides. The winning side included BMW, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Adidas, Facebook and a few others you can look up here and here.

Drop us a line if you think we can help you with yours. We'd be happy to share insights from both types of experiences.

×

🥳 We'd love to hear from you.

You need a team that is efficient.

We are! Actual footage of us being efficient.

You need a team that can put a presentation together.

Keynote, PowerPoint, InDesign, GoogleSlides - Pitch decks, concept decks, strategy, decks, or feedback decks. Hundreds of hours of chart building taught us that if an idea can't be told in a few charts, it is not ready to be told at all. You can check out some of our presentations here and here.
