'Tichelaar's basket' version

We really enjoy doing what we do. So that is something we can go on and on about for ages. It’s also a good thing that we know everything about (online) concentration spans and attention spans. So we’ll keep it short and sweet here. Like Tichelaar’s basket.

One creative floor, loads of solutions
We conceive and create everything for your brand. And we do so in teams with really good professionals: our effect makers. They deliver complete work, from strategy to designs and from copy to campaign management. Are you seated? These are the teams!

  • Design studio
  • Digital marketing
  • Live and online events
  • Brand, content & campaigns

Our customers are global brands such as HP, Netflix and Randstad. And national players such as Beter Horen, Kwantum and Leen Bakker. We also work for central government, such as the Ministries of the Interior, Defense and Education, Culture and Science. Non-profit clients include MantelzorgNL, Beweging 3.0 and The Foundation for Dutch Education Worldwide.

So we are familiar with how things go in various sectors. But we also remain curious. Why not take us into your world? And in the meantime, take a look at our best work here.

Nr 1 agency of the Netherlands
We are proud that customers really appreciate our work, because we may now call ourselves the best agency in the Netherlands for a year. And even in two categories: Communication advice and Event marketing. This is a good acknowledgment that our customers are really satisfied and highly recommend us to… you?

Live in Life
If you really want to get to know us, visit our office, Life in Utrecht, and find out why our effect makers are highly demanded marketing and communication professionals. Are you already a customer? Then you can always pop in on weekdays to come and work. Indeed, Tower A, 4th floor. Welcome!

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?

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.

Sinds 1997
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 :-)
