At SuperHeroes we’re on a mission: to save the world from boring advertising.
And as our mission gets more traction throughout the world, we need more help.

 

SuperHeroes is an international, digitally native creative agency. We’ve got an awesome team of about 40 heroes – who span 12 nationalities – and an amazing international roster of clients (like Converse, MTV, ASUS, ING and Coca-Cola).

 

As an independent boutique agency our creative business approach and innovative set of weapons is attracting a lot of attention. We’ve opened up an New York office and are closely looking at Asia as well. We’ve got no shortage of ambition and entrepreneurship and let creativity be leading in everything we do.

 

We’re looking for a ‘Super Brand Strategist’: an analytical problem solver that drives innovation and ideas for new and existing clients.

•    Turn insights into strategies that inspire and rationalize the development of integrated campaigns and executions.
•    Lead client conversations, workshops and planning sessions
•    Help build the client relationship, gain trust and happiness.

 

Desired skills
•    Minimum of 6+ years of experience in a brand strategy role
•    Love for innovation and non-traditional advertising
•    Experience in planning and delivering effective cross-channel campaigns and initiatives
•    Capacity to think holistically about a client’s business
•    Very strong written and verbal communication skills
•    Comfortable working in a flexible and entrepreneurial environment
•    A sociable and inspiring personality – people are genuinely happy to see and work with you

•    Native Dutch

 

 

What we offer
•    You will get a full time job
•    You will become a Superhero (isn’t that just awesome?)
•    You will work in our hideout in the heart of Amsterdam
•    You’ll even get a decent salary.

We are very happy to present to you our new SuperHeroes. In this blog series you get to know more details about every one of them. We want to introduce Libby. She is our newest producer all the way from Chicago!

 

What are your superpowers?

Super efficiency and super organisation! Aaand also making pizza magically disappear….

 

What is your personal mission?

My personal mission is to shake. things. up. I like to constantly question why things are, or have to be, a certain way and how they can be refreshed and improved.

 

What’s on your Spotify playlist?

A mix of everything, but lots of ZHU, Years & Years, and Drake for when I need to focus and really crush some work.

 

What IG profile would you recommend to follow and why?

Cash cats (@cashcats) or Corgi Butt Official (@corgibutt_offical). Fun fact: corgis have underrated, hilarious butts.

 

If your batmobile should be sponsored by one brand which one would it be and why?

My batmobile should be sponsored by ‘illy’ because it probably runs on coffee just like me!

 

Which apps are in your iPhone’s bottom row?

WhatsApp, Email, and MAPS….I’m always getting lost!

 

What emoji do you relate to the most and why?

I think the little ghost one that is sticking its tongue out, cause its funny and a little bit weird and it just kinda has its hands up laughing like “woo!”

Swimming with virtual sharks

Always wanted to swim with white sharks, but can’t afford a ticket to South Africa? Or you’re simply too terrified? Well, don’t worry any longer: you can now encounter a great white while floating in clean chlorinated water… 

 

 

The technical creators at our sister agency Magic Bullet developed Europe’s first underwater VR glasses for Vodafone, together with Glasnost. They created a floating buoy with animated leds and 4G, and connected it to a 3d-printed special underwater pair of VR glasses.

 

‘Awesome, super cool, bizarre’. 

The most daring part was an underwater 360 video, that was shot in South Africa. This 360 movie was then streamed onto a set of VR goggles, to a diver submerged underwater in the swimming pool. Check out the film to see the result!

 

 

 

Customs x Coffee = Rusty Gold

blogheader

 

At SuperHeroes we love motorbikes. We also love the enthusiasts who set up a bike shop and serve coffee, creating a cool hang-out like Rusty Gold Motorshop.

 

Together with San Diego-based illustrator Carter Asmann we’ve created this ad series for Rusty Gold, a local motor shop annex coffee bar in Amsterdam. Asmann only used coffee rings and a pencil to draw Rusty Gold Motorshop’s very own Yamaha XS650, a beautifully worn custom-built flat track racer. Next to this, he also used a BMW R100 and Easy Rider’s “Captain America” bike for the campaign.

 

The advertisement series is published in European motorcycle magazines such as Sideburn. The limited edition prints are up for sale in Rusty Gold Motorshop and via www.carterasmann.com.

Zoran Holtkamp, impassioned owner of Rusty Gold (and the XS650) is now selling Carter’s prints in his shop. Holtkamp: “It’s amazing to see the detail he puts in the drawings. And I love the idea of using the coffee rings. It’s so strong. Like our espresso shots.”

Last Friday we were part of Adnight 2017 with a Segway Grand Prix. Together with friends, fans and clients we rolled out an amazing evening of hairpin turns and photo finishes. A big thanks to those who dropped by & dared to race. We had a blast.

 

A special shout out to our lovely sponsors at Segway, Bos Ice Tea, Grazia and Gin Mayo, who made this night possible.
