As a creative director I led a team of architects, designers, strategists and copywriters to bring 11 agencies together in a new brand identity and headquarters in Amsterdam.

The new brand encapsulates the fresh perspectives that are in tune with current culture, society and technology. A collective that sparks conversations with exciting ideas, energized by curiosity and with the desire to create memorable work. A brand that reflects the shifting identities, values and ideologies made for the new world. 

Together as one, ACE creates waves that inspire people to join them on their core mission - activating positive change for people, brands, and society.

Making Waves - Concept

The graphical concept of making waves is the starting point for all things aesthetic. Across all graphic comms (where appropriate) it creates the idea of 'making waves' which suggests it's forever in motion, always in progressing, bridging one generation to the next and making waves for a brighter future.

ACE HQ - Interior Design and Architecture

The brand identity set the foundation for the architecture of the new ACE headquarters in Amsterdam. In close collaboration with interior architects and designers from Tank we created a place that inspires a culture of positivity, creative energy and open-mindedness.

The HQ is the space to create new ideas and liberate our thoughts in unexpected ways. ACE initiates encouragement programs, creative workshops, inspiration sessions and recording facilities.
