WANTED: Super Host (Mutants Ok!)

fichier-4

 

SuperHeroes Amsterdam is searching for a warm welcoming host. If hospitality and organization are your superpowers and you have a lovely voice that goes perfectly with our doorbell, you better continue reading…

 

We are looking for a full-time ‘Super Host’. Boring companies would call you receptionist. To us, you’ll be the mum or papa of the agency.

 

Responsibilities would include:

  • Meeting, greeting and helping all visitors at the hideout (and stopping villains at the door)
  • Preparing meeting rooms for our client visits with equipment and refreshments
  • Keeping SuperHeroes well nourished with snacks and daily lunch  (even SuperHeroes need to eat)
  • Managing incoming calls, distress signals, and company e-mails
  • Ordering supplies and equipment when needed and asked for
  • Keeping the Hideout in tip-top shape
  • Streamlining administrative procedures and organizing (internal) events
  • And more!

We are not looking for a ‘somebody’.

To be a real SuperHero, you need a nice range of superpowers:

 

  • Native Dutch and fluent in English
  • You are a proactive problem solver
  • You are organized and structured, and decluttering is your second nature
  • You take initiative and manage time effectively
  • You are flexible and embrace shifting priorities in a fast-paced environment
  • You love other SuperHeroes
  • You are available per July 1st, 2018
  • You want to be our host for the long term and don’t see it as a “side dish” but a “main course” in your career

    At SuperHeroes:
  • You will get a full-time contract
  • You will become a SuperHero (isn’t that just awesome?)

Nobody’s safe… when their exes are about to mess up the fun in the MTV Ex on the Beach: Double Dutch villa.

 

Our SuperHeroes crew put on their speedos to shoot this campaign with the full cast for the third season of the immensely popular MTV show.

 

Photographer of the campaign was Tim Mintiens.

NEW CLIENT: EUROJACKPOT

sh-x-ejp

 

 

You always need some luck with a pitch. But you can’t just rely on luck, you have to go above and beyond. And that’s exactly what we tried and thankfully succeeded at. After an elaborate pitch, we were named lead agency of Eurojackpot. And we’re stoked!!!

 

Eurojackpot is a European lottery where you can win a Jackpot of anywhere between 10 to 90 million euros every Friday night for 2 euros per ticket. Eurojackpot is part of the Nederlandse Loterij, the brand behind the well-known Dutch lotteries like Staatsloterij, Lotto, Miljoenenspel, Krasloten, Lucky Day and Toto.

 

Arno de Jong, director Brand & Portfolio at the Nederlandse Loterij: “Eurojackpot has seen strong growth and can be considered our portfolio’s diamond in the rough. That’s why we want to progress with a somewhat rebellious approach. With SuperHeroes, we have full confidence that we’ll achieve this goal.”

 

Django Weisz Blanchetta, managing director at SuperHeroes Amsterdam: “We’re not only developing a smart innovative campaign. We’re all playing, of course. We’re going to win that jackpot ourselves.”

 

The new campaign is in full development. Look out for updates about our collaboration on our social channels!

Here we go: the New SuperHeroes Identity!

 

We’re well into 2018, and it’s proving to be a year full of exciting changes! On top of our new Amsterdam hideout at Keizersgracht 585, we also have a slick new identity to roll out. Our beloved, old logo had a good nine-year run. It made a bold statement and looked good on swag, but as we grew and expanded, we wanted to make sure our logo did the same.

 

 

 

 

 

Introducing our new Superheroes identity: an evolution of the previous logo with some great fresh updates. We wanted to keep our bold and colorful style while optimizing it for display on a variety of platforms and scales. It needed to represent our core belief: saving the world from boring advertising. Not being boring means being quirky and entertaining, as well as colorful, bright, energetic and surprising.

The logo itself is made from custom letters. SuperHeroes designer Long Wu started by developing the “S” based off of golden ratio proportions. This defies the conventions of setting “N”, “H” and “O” first when designing the western alphabet. He consciously made this decision as superheroes often use the first letter of their name to represent themselves. Wu then took the geometric principles he created when developing the “S” and applied them to the other letters of the logo.

Color has always been a large part of the SuperHeroes DNA. Wu kept the red and blue from the old identity and expanded the palette with yellow and green to lend a “digital-era feeling.” The colors are chosen both for their contrast and their ability to harmoniously combine with each other.

We’ve also made sure to take our trusty ol’ Robin along with us (with a few tweaks of course). It’s kept its dynamic feeling of movement in a simplified, angular mask expression. Joy, humor, and optimism are core elements of SuperHeroes’ culture, so the bottom section of the new Robin is also meant to represent a large smile.

Speaking of office culture, when these elements are translated across the board, you can really see how the new identity comes to life from the wallpapers of our office and presentations to SuperHeroes swag.

Of course, identities, like people, evolve over time. We hope that with the dynamic design foundations laid down by Wu, our identity will never be boring. The infinite combinations of elements will allow our visual language to change and adapt as we do.

 

Until next time, SuperHeroes out!
