Describe the brief from the client
The task was to make the employee-friendly policy of Scholz & Friends tangible and visible in an innovative way.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
In 1981, Juergen Scholz founded Scholz & Friends – a new advertising agency with a new philosophy. His idea: make every employee feel important. But how can Scholz & Friends live up to its philosophy today? And how does it become visible to every single “Friend”, client, distributor, applicant and to families.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We invite our employees to change the agency’s name into their own. FourSquare gives them the chance to “own” the agency – by incorporating their name into the company’s logo at the front facade of the building. For example “Scholz & Friends” becomes “Heine & Friends”. It’s made possible by a Web-API, which provides communication between FourSquare and the LED-display above the entrance.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
Until today, over 60% of all employees have been using „Me & Friends“.
