This is how we connect you to your audience.
This is how we build stuff that will blow your mind.
This is how we seamlessly pull it all together.
Connection – true human IRL connection – is essential for our physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. We crave it. We seek it out.
Brands that tap into this need and contribute to counterbalancing digital-only trends will not only positively impact people’s lives, but secure a fiercely loyal customer base.
We live in a world where IRL connections are diminishing. Where community spaces are being systematically dismantled. Where ‘play’ is undermined, undervalued or misunderstood as ‘competition’. Where winning is fetishised and the definition of success is narrowing.
Brands shouldn’t forget the value of creating space for physical connection – with other people, yes, but also with the brand itself: with its representatives, its products, its environment, and its mission.
That is why HATTER works with brands to provide people with true experiences: moments of magic that offer an escape from daily life. That snap people out of autopilot. That make them feel excited, inspired and free.
HATTER is built upon the unshakeable belief that experiences such as these can change lives.
The HATTER office is a mix of creatives, strategists, designers, client managers, and producers. Our professional network is extensive, with a close-knit community of world-class AV technicians and fabricators on call.
Diversity means a lot to us. We are proud to be one of the only queer-owned brand experience agencies in the Netherlands.
Simon established HATTER in 2017 as a nod to his late father – the driving force behind his creativity. The ambition of the agency has always been to create personal human experiences with a touch of theatricality and showmanship, reflecting Simon’s own creative journey and background in retail, TV and theatre.
Simon has built a strong team around him of fellow believers in the power of true experiences, creating spaces that encourage people to embrace Positive Recklessness.
Lose yourself in the moment. Say, “F*** it, let’s see what happens”. Channel your inner desire to play. Stop caring about what anyone else thinks.
Fully embracing joyful impulsiveness – that’s Positive Recklessness HATTER-style. It’s about creating spaces where boundaries can be pushed, limits can be tested, and worries can be forgotten. It’s about finding moments of magic in the everyday and building experiences that can change lives.
