“The status quo is there to be upset. Let’s upset it. Let’s disrupt it.”
We believe it’s bigger than ever. Only, the ideas have changed. True brand ideas, design ideas, product ideas, platform ideas, those are the ideas that make a real difference for the businesses of our clients. Agencies have been very slow in anticipating this, and have for too long considered award-winning work as being the only standard.
We are constantly competing for attention. That’s why our competition is everything that’s happening in culture. So we felt the need for Disruption on a day to day basis...
Creating at the speed of culture requires a deep knowledge of culture. We need to be out there, live and observe the world every day. Disruption® Live is our answer to that. It’s a system for identifying triggers in culture that are meaningful to our clients' brands. In real time. The course of action could be a tweet, a PR stunt, a campaign or a new product. Anything, really. As long as it keeps your brand relevant for your audience.Watch the video
“Convention is for squares.”
TBWA\ Worldwide created its own cultural editorial unit called Backslash that has extended to the African continent. Together with a network of over 50 spotters across our African collective, they produce a daily stream of valuable insights from across the continent under the Backslash Africa banner. Different themed insights updates land in the mailboxes of every single co-worker. This allows us to inject cultural input into every creative output and inspire our work at your benefit.
As Disruptors, we are not afraid to give credit where it's due and that is why at every month we acknowledge outstanding work from the team as voted by fellow team members in relation to our cultural values. Every day we look for fresh ideas, creativity beyond, the curiosity that drives one to excellence or to collaboration.
