Founded in 2016 by journalists, creatives and producers, we have established ourselves as a leader in data-driven storytelling, working with an impressive roster of brands including BMW, Mercedes Benz, Allianz, the Human Vaccines Project, and many more. Our team consists of over 250 multi-skilled staff split between offices in Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich, and London.
Here at Looping Group, we have a distinctive offering for brands we work with. We develop content for earned and owned digital platforms, using data insights, and trends to create content that authentically connects brands with their audiences.
In this world, attention has become extremely scarce. To win attention, brands must now combine the art and science of storytelling. We put this at the heart of our product and service offering, uniquely combining the two to create content that commands attention, engages customers, and drives tangible business results. As an independent agency, we have ample opportunity to explore various solutions for clients and truly think uniquely. We are a tech-enabled comms agency built to think ahead of the modern world.

We are committed to conscious inclusion to create a sense of belonging, connection and shared purpose within our teams. We know it’s the right thing to do, and we know it will make us all happier, fulfilled, and successful in our work.
