Mother has a heritage of identifying and attracting world-class talent, every Mother office has been opened with this in mind. With Alex, the Mother Family has appointed one of the most regarded and awarded creatives as business partner to work with the talent and vibrant business scene Berlin is rapidly becoming synonymous for.

Alexander Nowak, CCO of Mother Berlin, commented, “It’s our mission to create a culture that creative minds - clients and our team alike - gravitate towards, one where we’ll get to make the best work of our lives. I want to create an environment that attracts the best talent from around the world to Berlin, no matter what seniority level or background. Mother Berlin will radiate radical positivity.”
Mother Berlin aims to become an integral part of the cultural fabric and exists to offer clients based in mainland Europe progressive cultural impact. Mother Berlin is designed to be a creative workshop, combining the best of German business practices - a focus on learning, teaching, and giving back to the creative community - alongside fostering world-leading communications techniques and approaches with experimentation and iteration core practices.

With Alex, Berlin, and the support of the whole Mother Family, particularly our team in London, we believe we can become a successful destination for creative-minded talent and clients in a market which is both a gateway to Europe and so important in its own right. This is an exciting addition to the Mother Family.”

When we decided to open in Europe, there was nowhere else we wanted to be; Berlin thrills us and is increasingly the destination for young creative minds from Europe and beyond. Mother has always gone where the talent is and sought to provide it with a truly independent creative home.
