Shared Purpose Model
We think it is time to rethink the traditional agency structure.
All of these fine dots, both represent a person, a professional, a business and a friend.
YEAHYEAH is a purely partner-based setup, which means that we all represent our own business within the collective. There are no figureheads and the partner you communicate with will also be the one running your project and doing the work. We do not have a boss, but we work for the same purpose.
Our collective is scalable, which means that you can hire just one of us, and even integrate this partner into your organisation, hire an entire project team or even partner up with some or all of us on a joint venture.
We have a wider range of competencies in the collective than you will find in a traditional agency. This is to ensure that we can lead you all the way from explorative understanding to launchable solutions without anything being lost in translation. When you work with us, you get access to a team of insight analysts, creative coders, frontend developers, product and service designers, digital business specialist, filmmakers and much more.
And one last thing – we are not a company…
Being part of a team is fantastic. But a good team doesn’t necessarily need to sit in the same room every day.
We are structured differently. Mainly because it makes sense.
We believe we can achieve the best results by putting together a core unit of the best people from project to project. We think it’s time to rethink the traditional agency or company structure. We think it’s time to structure the project – the collaboration – more than a company.
We're independent. We’re a moving organism. We're super agile. We're small and large at the same time. We're a team when it's needed, and individuals when not.
How the collective works.
When you work with us, you get access to a team of curious explorers, great listeners, bright thinkers, and proud creators within the creative business industry. Our varied backgrounds and skills enable us to do work as a team we never could have accomplished as individuals. We share a common way of design process thinking. It starts with curiosity, the eagerness to change stuff to the better and challenging status quo. The rest we’ll tell you about when we meet.Meet the people
The Project team.
It is not rocket science! But please notice that you are a central and necessary part of the team.
– We bring everything we got to the collaboration, as long as you promise to put in your best suitable people to the mix as well. From there, the rest is magic. Sort of...
The perfect mix of skills and experience. Focused entirely on you.
We want to put together the perfect team for each project. We want to get rid of unnecessary expenses. And we want to be able to work closely together with your team.
It means that a big part of the time we prefer to stay at your place, if possible. Implementing our core team into your organisation. Only then we believe we can create something great together.
We do not work for you. We work with you.
We put together the core team together with you, and embed ourselves in your organisation. We believe that a close collaborative process is fundamental in every business critical project. So yes, we will also eat lunch at your place and drink your coffee.
But don't worry, we're all nice people, so you'll love spending time with us.
Simple, yet important if we should work together.
Our ambitions are sky-high and we expect the same from you. We believe that close collaboration is key, and in order to succeed we must combine our minds and skills – you are expert in you own field and business – so we need you as much as you need us. Together we explore, think, prototype, discuss, make decisions, execute and implement. Together we succeed.
We must have a shared vision and level of ambition for a reason.
When we work with you on a new product, a service or your brand strategy we need a shared vision and align on the level of ambition. With hundreds of projects in different industries with huge variation, we see those two things as the main-drivers for success and a meaningful collaboration.
We want to know you in depth for a reason.
The final solution must be implemented in your organisation. If we don't know anything about how your business actually works, how people act and which mechanisms we can adjust, the risk of failing is just too big for us. Together we must involve the right people in the process, and ensure that it works in the organisation. The project is never finished until you know what to do next.
We need your trust and close collaboration for a reason.
At YEAHYEAH we work very transparently. We don't isolate ourselves during hundreds of hours of work and try to impress you with a top-notch presentation. We need to experiment and discuss along the way, get rapid feedback from prototypes, and optimise everything along the way. We want to let you in as early as possible, when things are ugly and unfinished, why we need your trust. We help you fail early so that you can succeed sooner.
We are not your cheapest option, for a reason.
Great work costs. The same goes for results which are changing businesses to the better. We are not your cheapest option just because we are structured differently, but at YEAHYEAH you pay only for the brightest minds, skills and experience. Not for huge offices, rich bosses or big cars.
