Hi, we are Bert Kerkhof and Ivar van den Hove and we’ve been working as a team since 1998. Throughout the years a lot of agencies passed by where we’ve done work for all sorts of clients and brands both big and small. Started as rookies at McCann Erickson followed by FHV/BBDO, PPGH/JWT, BLRS, EURO/RSCG en TBWA\Neboko.


At J. Walter Thompson Amsterdam we worked as creative directors and then moved on to Alfred International.


In the past years our work has won several awards like Lovies, Spin-awards, ADCN-lampen, FWA’s, San-accenten and Esprix’s.


We believe in craft, craft and craft, in strategic and in new.

And in banana bread.


You can book us as a team or as solo creatives.


All is brand. Brand is all.
