We are frank –

A globally oriented agency
helping today’s brands navigate
their rapidly changing,
evermore complex world.

We take pride in making
the complex beautifully simple.
It’s what we call

Engineered Simplicity.™

Maud, Paul & Sven are frank.

Maud, Paul and Sven – Founders of frank agency

Simplicity, sincerity and a belief in truth. It’s how we work as a team, how we work with clients, and how we believe brands need to communicate in the modern world.

Maud Schock - frank agency

Maud began in London, then worked for TBWA in Paris and Hamburg before taking a position as Global Account Director at FCB.

“All three of us have lived and worked internationally which allows us to better observe behaviour and to find ways of relating to people others may not see.”

Maud Schock, Client Services
Paul Kamzelas - frank agency

Paul is a highly awarded creative who began his advertising career in Australia before moving to New York to work with Fallon, then M&C Saatchi and BBH.

“A human truth can be much more powerful than a product truth because it has the ability to trigger emotion. As they say: people will forget what you said, they’ll forget what you did, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel.”

Paul Kamzelas, Creative
Dr. Sven H. Becker - frank agency

Sven was trained as a Planner at BMP in London. He worked at DDB in Düsseldorf and was Head of Planning at Springer & Jacoby, CSO and CEO at TBWA in Germany and Global Head of Planning BDF at FCB.

“Strategy is important, but it should never show. It has no place on its own. When it’s good, it’s the manure that let’s creative blossom – everybody will love the flower but nobody wants to smell the dung.”

Dr. Sven H. Becker, Strategy

Looking back – a vision for the future

As an example of the type of thinking you’ll see from frank in the near future, here’s some work from our past-lives in other agencies.

We thrive on the sharing of ideas with our like-minded partners and then enhancing them through our collective experience.

Maud and Sven collaborated with us while at FCB where they constantly pushed to build campaigns on powerful insights and human truths. Now, with frank, together we can do exactly that. We’ll deliver meaningful communication that comes from understanding.

I have seen many new agency models. Frank is modern and up to speed with the times but at the same time wise in their experience and how they work with brands.

We’ve always believed that Media shouldn’t be an afterthought.
The invitation from Frank to sit in their offices and work on briefs from day one was very exciting. Together we work holistically, not just integrated.

When you couple our sophisticated targeting and video content optimization with frank’s creative ideas based on strong insights, you know you’ll be delivering powerful content.

We love working with frank. They understand how to use influencers in social media and the importance of sourcing the right talent to execute their ideas. The partnership lives through a common understanding of what is best for the audience and the brand.
