Content is an inflationary and transient commodity. It can be created anywhere and distributed by anyone. But ... the quality of the content idea, the ability to touch people's zest for stories, myths and rituals is the differentiating element here. In order to access the best ideas, we stay close to and work directly with today's real creative: The creators Artists, who, regardless of their field of expertise, are driven by the ability to form and execute their own ideas. ... and dos Santos is proud of working with a collective of truly inspiring minds from various artistic fields like music, digital, film, photography, design, journalism and more.


... and dos Santos believes that working with diverse creative teams will aggregate the power of ideas and drive their wider relevance and longevity. Therefore we work with small collectives assembled of artists and communication strategists to develop strategy, ideation and execution. These can be for example teams build of film directors with digital producers and journalists or musicians with photographers and event planners where a strategist moderates their collaboration and leads the development of the strategy. They are appointed by the specific project objectives and the need for a healthy friction. Our straightforward, customizable development and execution process avoids the common complexity and duplication and helps marketers to save up to a fifth of the usual resources.


... and dos Santos synthesizes the connection and the creative planning into one holistic communication strategy to build consistency, endurance and potency for ideas. We think of it like a good plot for a story that links the "why", "what" and "who" with the "when", "where" and "how". Driven by the client's objectives and a sincere category-neutral view, the strategy is sharpened in collaboration with the creators to unleash the idea's full potential.

  • "Over the last months ... and dos Santos supported us developing a new digital product. To me it was important to use a fresh resource for both generating ideas and developing the strategy. From the outset I was impressed by their innovative agency model: The way in which their creative process mirrors how creativity exists in our society today and creates a collective intelligence. In particular the interplay between multifaceted expertise from across the creative and strategic spectrum helped us reaching stronger insights and clearer success-criteria, from which ... and dos Santos formed an outstanding product concept.

  • "... I specifically chose and dos Santos for a rather strategic meta-question „How to gain cultural relevance with my brand“. I felt for a longer time that Loreal Paris skin care is a strong brand with a differentiating DNA – however we were lacking a clear mission and POV as a brand. I think the most unique part of adS is their setup – the very lean core-team but a highly-competent huge collective of creators that allows to put various perspectives on a meta-question in order to really think outside the box and push the boundaries. Apart from that I felt that the process is very collaborative (workshop-style) and for me the biggest contribution of adS was to push me to think, rethink and reflect about my brand. Concrete results were a clear brand mission (verbal + in emotional mood film) that serves as guideline for our daily work and as content for internal / external presentations etc. In addition the project initiated several sub-projects to make the brand mission come to life and improve brand experience – e.g. rework of the coffret portfolio + set-up of a tester-strategy in drug. My expectations were met – even though its not easy at all parts of the process to understand whats coming out of it and you need to have some trust in adS, otherwise it does not work! General management was impressed by the presentation, especially the strategic framework ..." - Mareike Bell, Marketing Director Skin Care, L'Oréal Deutschland
