Not only has our team and business continued to grow, more importantly, we have been able to support many new clients with meaningful brand and culture development. Our 'emotive' way of working, which combines design thinking with branding, a concept we have been pioneering during the last decade, is increasingly being recognized as the way to go. We are grateful that more and more clients have selected us for our doings.

How to transcend brand communication with storytelling

Stories tend to feel so natural because we are psychologically designed to process stories with greater ease than any other format. It is no wonder why brands have used storytelling to sell their vision, ideas, and products to the world for so many years. From very early on, brands were quick to understand the importance of storytelling in engaging, inspiring, and activating their audiences.

Hey Siri. How do I survive the impact of AI?

Many daily activities that were unthinkable 20-25 years ago are now a part of daily life. Since then, we started to communicate online instead of writing letters or postcards, we purchase goods via webshops without actually touching the goods before the purchase, and we listen to music without even having to buy an album. Technology has brought a sense of convenience to our lives. But even great convenience comes with consequences.

Tussen Meer en Minder

We leven in een consumptiemaatschappij. We werken om in onze vrije tijd goederen en diensten te consumeren. Dat bevredigt geen basisbehoefte, maar geeft wel status en identiteit. Kapitalisme streeft naar permanente groei, bedrijven moeten meer produceren en mensen meer consumeren.

Wonderful Indonesia

Wonderful Indonesia, het land waar mijn roots liggen. Waar mijn ouders opgroeiden tot ze op 10 en 12-jarige leeftijd met de boot naar Nederland verhuisden. Een ongelooflijke reis, zeker vanuit deze moderne tijd bekeken. Zonder ooit buiten Java gereisd te hebben, zonder via social media al van alles te weten over hun nieuwe thuisland, gingen ze noodgedwongen het avontuur aan, die twee gezinnen waarin zowel mijn vader als mijn moeder tot de kleintjes behoorden.

We moeten vrijen, dansen en rennen

Happiness is maakbaar. Je kunt er zelf veel aan doen. Zelfs als het door omstandigheden even tegen zit, kun je er voor zorgen dat je je snel weer beter voelt. Door te vrijen, dansen of rennen komen er sapjes in je brein waardoor je je happy voelt. Die 'happy juices' gaan je hele lichaam door. Elke cel wordt er gelukkig door.
