Saying goodbye to one of our oldest friends

NEXT-DC and Heineken part ways in search of new opportunities ahead

Heineken has been one of our agency’s oldest clients. And over the past 8 years, we went through a lot together.

Together, we brought international brands like Heineken, Amstel, Desperados and Strongbow to life, finding new and innovative ways to engage consumers.

We built interactive experiences, we challenged cultural trends, inspired people to go further, threw parties and had lots of Heineken.

We created work that broke cultural barriers and achieved media coverage on 5 continents, winning over 40 international and local awards.

We helped Zagorka become FARA Marketer of the Year three times.

Most importantly, we inspired each other and pushed both our companies forward as partners.

But now we feel that it’s time for a change. We believe that both brands and agencies need a fresh start sometimes.

That’s why, NEXT-DC has decided not to participate in the upcoming agency pitch for the Heineken brand.

We would like to thank Heineken for the opportunity to work together during those 8 years and wish them all the best in their future adventures!

As for us, we are looking forward to new partnerships, hopefully as exciting as this one.

Cheers to what’s coming next.
