Best European cities to work and live in? Preferably w/ 2-3 agencies that produce award winning work.

London, Hamburg, Amsterdam, Berlin, Madrid, Paris. In that order. It's a tie between Hamburg and AMS though


depends on the accounts you work on. You can't go wrong with Jung von Matt though (unless your account is Vodafone), Grabarz&Partner (especially Burger King, Volkswagen and Porsche accounts) and Thjnk (Audi and Ikea). In that order. Maybe also Serviceplan, Kolle Rebbe, Philipp und Keuntje.

In Berlin, in no particular order, it would have to be Antoni (Mercedes), Heimat, DDB Berlin/Voltage, JvM/Spree, BBDO, Scholz & Friends.

Just my opinion though. That list most definitely isn't complete. There are many smaller agencies that do great stuff like La Red, Römer Wilderberger, Überground, Dokyo, Dojo. The smaller the more local it becomes though, so I don't know if they hire international talent.


Amsterdam , Berlin, Paris, Milan


+ Barcelona

Who’s doing great work in Barcelona? I’ve always lived with the impression that Madrid was on the advertising map, not Barcelona.

I am female and have a male friend who is a great cuddle buddy. We’ll share a bed and cuddle, hold hands, hug, etc. but we never do anything beyond that. We are both straight and single. Lately I really want to just have sex with him or even just make out. Don’t know if I should tell him or if that would make it awkward and change the friendship forever.
