Think bigger

METAphrenie means “Beyond the Mind”.

We seek collaborators who understand that good creative has a story and purpose that goes beyond the screen and beyond the mind. We infuse our work with an international perspective that parallels our own journey as an international creative studio. This journey has led us through some of the biggest hubs for creativity and innovation in the world: New York, Berlin, Dubai, and Los Angeles. With over a decade of experience as a studio and clients from multiple continents, we’ve honed our craft of empowering storytellers from around the world to tell a bigger story and paint a bigger picture.

Be smaller

Recently words like “small” or “boutique” have come to have negative connotations. Every creative studio wants to show how big they are and how large they can grow. Not us. We can THINK BIG, but still BE and ACT SMALL. Why small? Because it allows us to be more nimble, to constantly iterate and focus on the essentials. Our ability to simplify how we work also supplies insight to help our clients and collaborators clarify their marketing messages. We don’t worry about growing big, we focus on solving big creative problems for our clients.

Push creative

Our goal is to always help our clients achieve the best creative possible. Sometimes that means we push back on ideas, sometimes we hit the target dead on, and sometimes we enchant in an unexpected way. We are always focused on pushing creative to be the best iteration possible, which is not what we “think” is the best creative, but the best solution for the problem presented.

Respect the process

We know what we’re capable of because we’ve spent the last decade developing our Process. We’ve tested it, learned from it, constantly refined our techniques to improve & innovate our Process. At its core, our Process is based on recognizing that you face tough challenges daily and you need effective solutions starting yesterday. Fortunately, finding new and interesting ways to solve these creative problems is one of our true passions.
