Bang! The new year kicks off with actual New Year’s fireworks: HECTAS Facility Services has become our new client.

In February we continue to pick up speed and implement the global campaign for EVONIK Coating Additives.

Agile.Ruhr Camp is an open platform for the exchange on Agile, Lean, Scrum, Kanban and more. Five of us are participating in Essen and we are the only communications agency to hold not one but two sessions. The feedback is superb.

May is quite an exciting month. KEUCO.COM gets a whole new look. The UX presents the world of high-quality bathroom furnishings – with exquisite photography and showcased in a spectacular way.

Kontrast and Huawaei hit it off. We win the pitch for the national below-the-line campaign in the consumer segment.

For years, we have cultivated a close cooperation with Censhare AG. In May, this leads to a conclusive majority stake in Kontrast for the software company. As opposed to many other acquisitions and investments, this merger is not driven by sales but rather focusses solely on solutions.

One lucrative investment in our future is our participation in the adday/adnight at Boui Boui Bilk. There we speak with many young talented people and make a number of interesting contacts.

In times of dynamic markets and disruptive processes, networking is gaining special significance. The 12th AgenturCamp in Düsseldorf is the ideal platform to have an exchange with other Düsseldorf-based communications agencies. At this “unconference” we discuss agility and new work. The motto of this event is “agencies on the move”.

Sometimes things move a little faster: One day after we meet Ergo Versicherung at a chemistry meeting, we are already tasked with the first project in personal liability insurance. The starting point for a growing customer relationship.

Last but not least, our presentation at the Dmexco trade fair in Cologne. At the booth of our partner Censhare we run an open space for discussion of agile work. This has consequences – and they are positive. Our CEO Joachim Fischer strikes up a conversation with representatives of Koehler Paper Group from Oberkirch (Black Forest) – and convinces them of our vision for an agile client-agency relationship. The global leader for thermal paper entrusts us with supporting their company in marketing, communication and market positioning.
