We were born 18 years ago in 1995 when Maurice and Charles Saatchi left the agency they had founded in the 1970’s – Saatchi & Saatchi – and started a new global network with two clients, British Airways and Qantas, M&C SAATCHI quickly became ‘the fastest growing agency in the history of advertising.’ Today we have 28 offices in 17 Countries. Our specialty is to bring fresh thinking where conventional has failed. We see ourselves as a challenger agency helping to make a difference with brands and companies that need to break through the clutter.
Philosophy & Competitive Advantages
M&C Saatchi is founded on the principle of Brutal Simplicity. Brutal Simplicity is at the heart of everything we do. From creative thinking to creative work. From how we are structured to the systems we use. Brutal Simplicity runs through the culture of every single one of our offices, all around the world.
It's easier to complicate than to simplify. Simple messages enter the brain quicker and stay there longer. Brutal Simplicity of Thought is therefore a painful necessity.
