About us. It all started in London in 1996 when a group of free-thinking, creative revolutionaries ate lunch at a kitchen table.

Mother is a meeting place for the world’s best creatives and the world’s most ambitious clients.

We are a global kitchen table with seating in London, New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, and Berlin for the best creatives in the world who enjoy making connections between brands and audiences.

We make our children proud, so to speak, by pushing the limits of creativity, making work we don’t hate, and trying to improve the world in ways both meaningful and marginal. We are able to do this because we always have been, and always will be, independent.

We offer a full range of creative services, including but not limited to: brand building, design, production, animation, product development, brand incubation, content making, social activation, technology innovation, full-service media, PR, and whatever else we think of next.
