A bit of history

In 2016, right around cartoonbase started to make the transition into the creative agency it is right now I joined Thomas, Martin and the team and I haven’t regretted it since.

After three years of working on the direct relations with our clients, like the Boston Consulting Group, UNHCR, and Solvay I got asked to lead our office in Brussels and become the country manager of Belgium.

Brussels, like cartoonbase, is a melting pot of all different cultures and different disciplines.
Something we truly believe in with cartoonbase, creativity is not solely the realm of so-called “creatives”; conversely, “creatives” do challenge content. This is genuinely iterative teamwork.

So if you drop by the cartoonbase offices, don’t be surprised if you overhear a heated conversation between an illustrator and a writer about whether pretzels or apples are the best representation for quantum particles, or if it is vital to have a thorough understanding of the way central banks work to grasp the concept of blockchain.

That’s one of the reasons why our clients love working with cartoonbase so much.

Next time you’re in the neighbourhood, don’t be shy and experience this unique spirit in our office yourself. Oh, and while you’re at it, you’re invited to drop by and play a little game on our foosball or kicker table!

You’re always welcome,

How we create your next animation, visual or graphic identity in Brussels

Content first! There is no good communication campaign without substance. From the idea to a well-crafted concept, a graphic identity and a story that is told striking the right tone and pushing the right buttons, your content is what makes your message come alive.

Over the years, drawing on our experience across diverse fields and projects, we have fine-tuned our approach to deliver visual content that makes you feel something.

We make sure all our projects reflect what we call our DNA, the recipe for a good project:

  1. Touch the right cord. The first thing we ask is how you want the audience to feel about your message. This is the central pillar of any campaign and determines the style, tone, length, distribution channel, etc.
  2. Simplify without dumbing down. Of course, knowing how you’d like people to feel about your message doesn’t replace the message itself. We get straight to the point: our content creators make sure to cut all unnecessary information. Every sentence, visual, word or music should serve a purpose:
    • Does it contribute to striking the right tone?
    • Does it convey an important piece of information? One that truly contributes to the objectives of the communication plan?
  3. Prototype quickly. No need to have finalised material to exchange ideas. Fast prototyping gives room to co-creation, corrections and exchanges. It enables us to provide you with ideas and you to direct us where you want to go.
  4. Treat all content equally. It’s not because you are training people or discussing complex matters that your communications must be dull. Quite the contrary: getting your message across is worth the extra mile, whatever the scope.
