What’s in it for you?

In the end, its always money in the bank. Yes, we are all in our jobs because we love what we are doing and we believe in our products, but we are also businesswomen and men. Without a return on investment in some way, efforts are useless, so how do we get there?

The Process

To fully understand where your business is leaving money on the table, we have to understand what you want to do, where you want to be and how you plan to get there. We have to figure out if there is even a path to where you want to be. After developing an elaborate marketing and branding strategy, we will either consult you or help you with our branding and marketing solutions to get where you want to be. Nothing goes without your help though and so we work closely together with your in-house team to crank up the heat as fast as possible.

VEGABOND

I have been working with Cons and Tobi for around 8 months now and I am more than happy. We recently signed a contract over 18 more months and I feel well prepared for the future in terms of digital marketing and content creation. My business focuses on a very specific target group and therefore I had doubts if blckeye would be able to understand and service it well enough. Fortunately, enough, my expectations have been exceeded and Cons as well as Tobi (and all of their freelancers) show great understanding of what veganism is about.

Mexican Tears

A great agency with a very fast response time to inquiries, which is important, especially for our social media channels. We also feel fully supported when it comes to designing materials for new products (labels, packaging). blckeye always continues to work on the projects until we are satisfied. Really recommended!

Building a Strong Brand

 #1 BRAND & Marketing STRATEGies

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Above all the things we do stands strategy. Identifying and analyzing the problems your brand is facing is the first step on a fast and focused way to find a suitable solution. There is no one-fits-all recipe when it comes to marketing and branding. Like culinary areas, every market is different and therefore requires a different combination of ingredients. Through branding and strategy workshops, we help you to uncover what stops your brand from reaching its full potential. A detailed plan will allow you to determine a clear plan of action. If you decide to execute this plan through the branding and marketing solutions we offer is your choice, but for us, this is always the first step. Always

Branding

The perception of reality is more important than reality itself.

Defining the way your company is seen by the public eye, your customers, your employees, your suppliers and your competitors is a key task in building a strong foundation for the future. You will unearth or determine the values your brand is build on and learn how to present them visually and in written form.

Social Media

We don’t know how to do social, we know how to be social.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Pinterest, WeChat, TikTok, Snapchat, Dubmash, Reddit, WhatsApp, Messenger, Foursquare. Identify the key networks for your brand, and reach your audience with relevant content that communicates your brand identity.

Graphic Design

There can only be two responses to design – WOW or no.

Flyers to tell visitors about your products, business cards so potential customers and suppliers will remember you, packages that catch the eye of a consumer in the supermarket or animations that get your followers to engage on social media. Designs that bring business and know when commerce comes first and when art has to rule.

Web design

Human first, mobile second, dekstop third.

A website is the only place on the internet that you fully control, so take full control of everything. Enjoy the conversion and traffic benefits of a fully optimized website, that fits well into your sales funnel and communicates your brand’s key information in a fast and accesible manner.

E-Mail Marketing

Unlike Fax-Marketing, this still works like magic.

While many companies have written off e-mail marketing, it remains a powerful tool for E-Commerce and product brands, but also restaurants still enjoy high open and click-through-rates. Never forget, a submitted E-Mail address is the consumer giving up his privacy because he is interested in your brand. It’s a powerful step.

Food & Beverage Photography/VideoGraphy

Where words aren’t enough, pictures have to speak.

Written words convince our brain, but  visuals capture our hearts. The way we feel about a product is so much more important than what we know about it. Our product and lifestyle photography and videography services create attention grabbing images and story focused video content that will draw your audience deeper into your brand.  After all, without good visuals, great copy and strategy will remain ignored.

The Cooks in the Kitchen

Its not only what you eat. It’s also about who you eat it with! We have been working together for several years and in several industries, but in the end, we always meet at the dinner table. Food has become our lives, it’s the reason we travel, the reason we started our own brand, the calm before every storm, the peace after every battle. The kitchen is where we can express ourselves to our guests, it’s where we can share our passion. Working in the food and beverage industry allows us to take this passion to the workplace. Like head chefs in a restaurant, we would be nothing without a strong team that supports us and is one of the core strength of blckeye.  If you want to find out more about us or our team members, let’s have coffee!

Head Chef: Creative

Constantijn Pennekamp

The human eye should be known to mankind as one of the greatest gifts of life. It’s a gateway to the universe and what it beholds. It provides us with the ability to associate color, shape, distance, and energy to subjects within our human surroundings and even beyond.

I look back at 10 years of experience living as a creative, and have wandered the creative landscape as a professional for the past 4 years of my life. Yet, I look ahead to an even longer path of new challenges, accomplishments, and milestones. Why?

I enjoy the creative, and admire creatives. Being creative is about about breaking new grounds and barriers, and mediating emotions, feelings, and nostalgic experiences. This is the notion that I base my work on.

   

 

Head Chef: Strategy

Tobi Schmidt

As Sun-Tzu wrote in the Art of War: “In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity”. It is upon us to find those opportunities in life and business. Strategy allows us to align towards a common goal, it enables us to measure our efforts and see if what we set out to do is working. 

I have been working in marketing and business strategy for over 8 years while maintaining a passion for the creative arts and commerce driven design.  I’m in love with the process and believe in data driven decisions and consumer centered psychology. 

6 Years as a web-designer allowed me to see how the strategies we write, become reality and how the creatives we work with execute the visions we formulate, which, after all, created a stronger and oh so important connection between the two departments in our company.
