More Communication, Less Noise

About eobiont

Founded in 2000, eobiont has established itself as a marketing communication and design agency focused on solving difficult challenges in the areas of public awareness, high-tech and the innovation space. This requires specialized expertise. Motivating people to adopt new habits or attitudes requires a deep understanding of the biological triggers of human behavior. If you want to explain complex technology to those without a technical background, you need to understand that technology. When you are introducing a new idea to an untested market, you need adaptive strategies for both product development and marketing. And always, you need to know your users.
Today our main services are Communication Strategy, Brand Development and Online Marketing. Projects range from quick and dirty lead generation campaigns to complete company rebranding. For some of our mid-sized clients we also manage all of their marketing and advertising efforts as lead agency. We call this Full Metal Marketing. As such we have, over the years, built a large portfolio of work in most forms of advertising, promotion, corporate communication, online development, video and animation. Under work. you can see some of our more recent projects.

An integral part of our success is our unique methodology that we call The Creation Machine. This involves a series of co-creation workshops and other techniques for rapidly developing and testing high-return strategies. You can learn more about The Creation Machine here.

Our Team

To be able to fulfill our commitment to providing leading edge communication strategy, marketing and design solutions, eobiont makes it a priority to find the best international specialists in strategy, planning, design, content creation, storytelling, media production and coding we can find. We actively invest in continual learning through training, conferences and our weekly Toomorrow (not a misspelling) Innovation Lunch.

Ideally our projects are intrinsically challenging, drive our customer’s business forward in powerful ways and have a positive impact in the world we live in.

What the eobiont?

eobiont is a term coined by the scientist J.D. Bernal to describe the hypothetical chemical precursor of a living cell. It literally means the dawn of life. In naming our agency eobiont, we call attention to the inspiration we draw from both the processes of nature and the science that is applied to understand them. This becomes a metaphor for the iterative problem solving that defines our own creative approach and is prerequisite to the spawning of new ideas.

Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

Our Values

Since day one it has been our priority that eobiont be a place of passion. But if you want to love your work, that work has to be lovable. This is why we have specialized in areas where our marketing communication talents can be invested in meaningful ways. Ideally our projects are intrinsically challenging, drive our customer’s business forward in powerful ways and have a positive impact in the world we live in.

It is also important that the job of each of our staff remains interesting and rewarding. We do this by sharing responsibility, having a flat hierarchy and allowing everyone the space to flourish and achieve their potential. Fairness, honesty, transparency, mutual respect and trust are guiding principles.
