No one-off but part-of
Our effect makers strive for intensely satisfied clients, smiling from ear to ear when they see the results of the work we deliver. We commit to delivering real results. Our vision is to achieve this result through cooperation and co-creation. We take the lead, but need you too. That is why we invest in long-term relationships with brands that also opt for this way of working. Because the best results are really created when we choose each other. Do you have the courage to make that choice?
Strong in a wide range of sectors We work for brands in the B2B and government, healthcare and non-profit sectors. Our clients include global brands, national players and regional heroes. As a client, you are never too small or too big for us. We simply love the changes and variety! We know how things go in a range of sectors but we still enjoy discovering new worlds. Take a look at recent projects for different clients here. Why not take us into your world?
Full-service Our agency has about thirty effect makers, who offer a rich and broad palette of expertise, to conceive and create everything for your brand. As a client, you always get a dedicated team with a fixed contact person. We aim for short lines and long-term collaborations.
Communication with real results
Our agency has a deep-rooted commitment – to deliver work that is really meaningful for you. This is a matter of course for us, and a reassuring thought for you as our client!
So, what can’t we accept? Dissatisfied clients! We really can’t stand this so much that we really do invest everything we can in preventing it ever happening. This obsession ensures that we work with many of our clients for years.
With almost 25 years of communication experience, we have created thousands of marketing hours and we have a toolkit packed with knowledge and experience. You could say – we are in our prime! In any case, we are not a flash in the pan, and we can honestly say we are a reliable agency.
We are a mash-up of Amsterdam creativity, Rotterdam bravery, Groningen sobriety and Brabant hospitality. That’s probably why we feel so at home in Utrecht :-)

These are them!
These professionals are on hand to get to work on your digital, live or cross-medial communication challenge. That said, we are currently looking for a number of new effect makers.
Ambition, focus and creativity. That is Séla in a few words. Pleasant, cheerful and eager to learn. That is also Séla in a few words. And had we already used the words tech, events and professionalism? No! Séla cannot be captured in words or described in a sentence! You know who Séla is once you’ve worked with her. So…, what are you waiting for? :-)
Are you a brand? Then you need Esmee! She wants to understand and fathom your world, your brand and your target group. As an Account Director, she directs assignments from application to evaluation. Esmee brings loads of energy, and that really is a pleasure to work with!
Working hard to achieve a great result. With that attitude, Sandra has been able to complete a wide range of live, online and marketing projects for fifteen years.

Sandra creates a nice atmosphere and excellent sense!
Peter is our experienced man, and he really knows how things go on both the client and agency sides.

De creatieve merkstrateeg en oprichter van ons bureau. Stapt al meer dan 20 jaar dagelijks zijn bed uit om onze klanten te helpen met effectieve marketing en communicatie. Onverslaanbaar in short copy en volgens hem ook in Padel. Met één van deze twee zijn we het eens:-).
Is the glass half full or half empty? Kirsten will say it is overflowing. What positivity! With a double HBO education and triple working speed, she provides clients with high-level communication advice. We just love her! You can read an interesting interview with Kirsten here (Dutch).
We are as good as our effect makers. We want them to be leaders in their field (and they want to do that for themselves!), to continue developing in their work, and to go to work at home or in-office every day with great pleasure. That’s why we are so happy with our HR manager Sandra.
Hard werken voor een groots resultaat. Mogen we je voorstellen aan Mariëlle, onze COO? De kurk waarop onze projecten drijven? De sterke schouders waarop collega’s kunnen leunen? De regisseur van ons dagelijkse werk? Welk synoniem je ook kiest, we just love her!
Linda makes sure your content does what it needs to, and that your campaigns really deliver. She pays attention to the smallest details, and always keeps a careful eye on the concept. Don’t ask us how she can do it, but between working for all the companies, she is also building up her personal brand!
Ilke knows, like no other, precisely what clients need to achieve their communication goals. And that’s logical, because she has about fifteen years of experience in various management and consultancy functions on both the agency and client sides. Ilke is a professional with a lot of substance, and a great sense of humor!

Edwin is our man who can think up something for everything – creative concepts for brand activations and events. And he is our copywriter for digital and other content, and brand campaigns. If you want results, you need Edwin.
Our golden man from Gouda, the hero of the pixels; there is little that makes Erik as happy as putting the right pixel in the right place.

Do you need artwork for a campaign or design for a magazine? Then you need Anouk! A creative and talented professional who clients find flawless. And a very nice colleague with a great sense of humor. We just love that!
With a full eight years of event and project management experience, we can safely call Tanya a senior, although she is still far from that in her early thirties. So, what is she really? A sympathetic professional who develops programs that are really meaningful for our clients’ businesses!
Ronald is not just a graphic designer. He is a really good one! We can say a lot about Ronald here but that would take away the surprise. Just be impulsive and put Ronald to work for you. Then you will see why we think he is so great.

A city girl with a touch of the country. That’s Marissa. A city girl, where creativity is concerned. But a country girl when it comes to reliability. Marissa likes to invest in long-term collaborations and she turns clients into real effectgroep* fans. And we’re her fans too!
Gineke makes sure our accounts housekeeping is in order. And that’s a reassuring feeling. Although she is creative, we are extremely happy that she’s not creative with the accounts. She will not tolerate black money or red figures, while she is making up our pink invoices every day.
This young professional ensures that our commitments are fulfilled. With her friendly smile, she directs colleagues, clients and suppliers steadily toward milestones and deadlines. In between all that, she photographs at a professional level, doesn’t sing badly at all, and she really does her job happily!
