Welcome to The Barbarian Group
A daring creative agency with a digital heart
We were founded in 2001 out of an obsession with the Internet and a vision to grow brands’ share of the future. We’ve since grown into a creatively-driven, technologically savvy production-house-meets-agency focused on one thing: making stuff the Internet loves. Because we know that what the Internet loves today becomes culture tomorrow.
We are partners to two different types of clients: large, long-standing brands like Samsung, IBM, Pepsi and GE who need deep expertise in digital to increase their cultural relevance and digital infrastructure to operate. As well as smaller, innovative, start-up-type companies who need a like-minded partner like KIND. One of our core strengths is our ability to flex across different businesses and categories, from fast moving consumer goods marketing, to B2B messaging for IBM to hard core tech builds with companies like Amazon and Google.
In 2013, we were awarded the inaugural Grand Prix Lion for Innovation at Cannes for our Cinder software, a creative tool for digital experiences across all digital display platforms. Most recently, we were awarded a Bronze for Design for our work with CenterStage.
It's gonna be awesome(TM).
