Thomas Bo Nielsen to boost WeThink Nordic’s creative edge

Thomas Bo Nielsen to boost WeThink Nordic’s creative edge

8. April 2021

Thomas Bo Nielsen has joined WeThink Nordic as Creative Director. Nielsen’s breadth of international experience and innovative style will bolster the agency’s position as a lead digital agency servicing clients across the Nordics and the wider EMEA region.

“We are very enthusiastic about what Thomas will bring to our company. His CV demonstrates the calibre of his work on major international accounts and I love his fearless visual eye,” says Claus Møllebro, Head of Creative and Partner at WeThink Nordic.

Møllebro adds, “In addition to being a talented graphic designer and art director, Thomas spans a wide range of disciplines from concept development and product innovation, to specialised digital content production.”

Nielsen’s international experience includes significant global brands such as Schweppes Orangina, B&O Play, ABM industries, Pernod Ricard and Evian. On the Nordic front, Nielsen has been responsible for clients such as 3 mobil, Arla Foods and Rynkeby. He also played a key role as Art Director for Cocio’s iconic brand relaunch featuring the Hollywood super star Eva Mendes.

According to Patrik Thelin, CEO and Founding-Partner, WeThink has experienced significant growth over the past year with newly onboarded Nordic clients and an expanded international client list that Thelin believes is due in part to the pandemic causing global clients to be willing to look further afield and finding value in Nordic design expertise. 

Thelin remarks, “With the growth we’re experiencing, it was very important for us to bring Thomas on board and really lean into 2021. I believe he is among the best creative directors in the industry and in partnership with Claus they are the core of the outstanding creative team backing WeThink Nordic and WeThink Social.”

From his own perspective Nielsen believes in driving significant results for clients by reinvigorating the creative process that is now often weighed down by the flood of data in today’s ‘always-on’ world.

“Obviously data has always played a central role in driving intelligent and creative design. But on the flip side it can also overly interfere with and devalue the creative process at the cost of the client and the end customer,” says Nielsen.

“I am looking forward to delivering greater value to WeThink clients by leveraging the current trends in digital around programmatic as well as the explosion of audio content through platforms like Clubhouse. But while the technology changes rapidly, I believe in an analytical approach: always putting the idea first with sound artistic aptitude to ensure authenticity and relevance,” Thomas Bo said.

Nielsen joins the management at WeThink Nordic together with Patrik Thelin, Ghita Holst and Claus Møllebro.

Learning by doing in the age of opportunity

Learning by doing in the age of opportunity

10. December 2020

What do you want to be when you grow up? For some people the answer has always been clear. For others, like me, this question is literally a never ending story…

That explains why I spent the past years working within the event industry, while studying visual communication and teaching yoga. On top of that, my family and I started a wine company together back in 2017. Without any prior experience, I began to do everything from creating social media content, to presenting the wine to restaurants, and learning how to update the website. I’ve always been a typical ‘generalist’, so doing a little bit of everything felt natural. However, I became more interested in working on the creative aspects and started to look for an education where I could follow this desire. Luckily, I came across the school Hyper Island. I became really intrigued by the fact that the whole education is based on working in teams, solving problems for real clients, while being guided by industry professionals from all over the world. 

I decided to apply for the Content Developer program in Stockholm, and was later called to the interview. I can still remember one question they asked me, which was simply “why do you want to study content development?”. After what felt like very long seconds I replied “because I want to reach out”. Even now, almost two years later, that is still how I would explain why I do what I do. My desire to understand people and what actually can change a behaviour, thought, or emotion, is what keeps me hungry to learn about the world of content, communication and design. 

Therefore I had butterflies in my stomach when I finally got accepted to Hyper Island. Since then I’ve had the privilege to explore many different areas, such as storytelling, design thinking, concept development, content production and strategy. During this journey I started to dream about working more with graphic design. When it was time to apply for internships I began looking for design agencies both in Sweden and abroad, and was thrilled when I saw an internship opportunity opening up at WeThink in Copenhagen. I decided to reach out, even if it felt a bit scary since I had neither a long nor formal education within design. The Nordic gods must have been on my side, because WeThink have welcomed me to the team with open arms. 

It has only been a few weeks since I stepped into the office, but I must say that I’m fascinated by the open, collaborative yet fast paced and focused atmosphere I’ve experienced so far. I’m especially grateful to be surrounded by so many brilliant minds to learn from. It makes it possible for me to refine my creative skills every single day. Even though I’m still a typical ‘generalist’ who might never know exactly what I want to be when I grow up, it feels amazing to really dive deeper into the universe of design. Because something I do know is that It’s always worth going where there’s passion. No matter what.

Transferring theoretical knowledge into practical value

Transferring theoretical knowledge into practical value

19. November 2020

I recently joined WeThink Social, which is an independent advertising agency based here in Copenhagen. My role is as a Project Assistant focused on digital advertising, communication and social media marketing.

WeThink Social assists local and international clients to establish a strong digital presence in their chosen markets. As I am learning each day, the way this is achieved is through creative content that responds to the technical possibilities of each platform and drives relevance for each audience. Our idea is that a world where advertising and marketing is tracked and based on performance is world where advertising and marketing has a genuine potential to add value. When done well, advertising and marketing (aka communication) can seamlessly connect people with their needs, wants and aspirations. 

I am currently studying a Masters in Communication and IT at the University of Copenhagen. At WeThink Social I get to combine the theoretical aspect of communications and technology that I have learned from my studies with practical experience in the real world. As such, while I am gaining knowledge of concept development, data mining as well as learning about digital platforms and media through my studies, my job allows me to make these skills concrete.

I am particularly interested in analysing data to gain insights, so that we can recommend new and better digital strategies for our customers. Through my study, I have learned the importance of involving customers and understanding their situation before taking the step to choose technology. This is a critical part of the value equation and also a way to reduce unnecessary low value advertising. In particular, the fundamental skill of being able to analyse large amounts of data, which I have learned through my study, greatly assists me in my daily work.

I am finding that my theoretical understanding of the interplay between humans and technology is an important asset in my role at WeThink Social.

I am excited to be part of a creative culture and an agency that genuinely strives to deliver the best for our customers each time. I have a strong sense that the new challenges I get everyday are helping to shape my future career.
