Roger&Gordana have been working as an international creative team for over a decade.
As the lead team for Libresse Europe they created different campaigns for markets such as the Nordics, UK, France and Russia, all under the same umbrella concept.
They were also part of the MINI team (global MINI account) and worked as the Robinsons Fruit Shoot lead team for the Dutch market, which campaign spread internationally.
Next to this, they created the 538 Stereoheads, which ran successfully for many years in the Netherlands. During this time Radio 538 regained the number one position.
Both have a great business understanding, a strong strategic insight and lots of brand positioning experience.
And these two strongly believe in campaign efficiency. Campaigns shouldn't just look good, they have to work too.
