WHY CREative north

The Creative North network aims to create common grounds across the industry, where competitors can work together, learning and lifting the potential of the entire Nordic region. Collaboration and openness is part of our Nordic DNA and with Creative North we will embrace the full potential of our unique approach to creativity.

The Nordic creative approach is unique! We are explorers, rebels, first movers and innovators. We offer a special brand of creativity rooted in a rich history and culture of trust, equality and tolerance. Craftsmanship, simplicity, aesthetics, diversity, storytelling and whimsical approach are key to our creativity. We believe in building genuine relationships based upon honesty and fearlessness. The lack of hierarchies enables openness, smooth, fast and fun processes, where people come first. Combined with a truly global outlook it is the perfect environment for creative problem solving that bring people and brands closer together and it enables us to deliver value for money in any currency.

WHO ARE WE TODAY

Creative North is rooted in the shared vision of a group of industry leaders. They have talked, travelled and collaborated to gain a shared understanding of Nordic creativity and make Creative North a reality since 2015, where the Network was founded at an AOL, now Oath, hosted event at the Majestic in Cannes.

Oath Nordics has sponsored all Creative North network activities until now including a Creative North Project Lead and the official Launch in Cannes co-hosted by TV 2 Denmark. Moving forward Oath Nordics will continue to play an important role as partner and sponsor along side new partners and sponsors.
