Life saving aid to
more than 2 million people

Being one of the world’s leading humanitarian organizations the Red Cross gets access to people and places that are hard to reach otherwise. Thanks to volunteers in 190 countries we can get help through - even in the midst of war.

By supporting this year’s fundraising you help us get clean water, food and medicines through to the most vulnerable amongst us: People that live in areas of war and conflict. This year we are focusing on 9 countries, amongst them Syria, Afghanistan and South-Sudan.

Together we can get help through.

About Geist

Geist is home to spirited, video obsessed, disruptive thinkers. Game-changers who know how to tell stories that evoke emotion. Together, we uphold our healthy disregard for traditional advertising and move towards a new era of neuroscientific brand experiences.

Geist has the strategic and creative skills to elevate your brand and have it stand above the noise. Brands need to tell stories, inspire ideas and speak to audience’s heads as well as their hearts.

Our goal is not the conquest of advertising awards, but creating content that moves. We’re a small core team working with the industry’s best. Trust us to tell your story and trigger action.

Using the power of science and psychology we can increase sales and unlock your consumer’s purchasing decisions.

Ads with the best emotional response generate a 23% lift in sales. Through neuroscientific methodologies we can pinpoint what is (and isn’t) resonating with your consumers. 95% of consumer’s decision-making process is based on subconscious stimuli so we need to do more than just measure effects. During our creative process we use neuroscience to measure emotional reactions, biometrics and analyse human subconscious to enhance your consumer-brand experience. Market research is nothing new, but we can create compelling and effective content that will help you build deep, lasting connections with your audience.


We can help you get noticed with enriching and entertaining Brand Films.

The days of boring repetitive collateral are over; today, it’s about creating entertaining and enriching content that doesn’t bombard your consumer. From strategy to creative concept, production to distribution, we’ll bring your brand to life through compelling storytelling.​ ​ Content imprints on the cortex when it touches the heart. Using cutting edge neuroscience we’ll help you craft an emotive brand story to increase memory retention and elevate your brand from the noise.

Explainer video

Video is by far the fastest growing marketing tactic in use today because it informs and persuades better than any other media type. We have the expertise to give your innovative ideas a memorable story and explanation.

Let us captivate and retain your audience’s attention through a memorable and well-crafted Corporate Video that has the power to convert leads to sales.


We can help you enhance your value proposition through case studies.

We can help you create a formula to tailor episodes that suit your brand story and give your content a longer shelf-life.


We can help you successfully differentiate yourself in your market.

From video testimonials to on-screen interviews, a Speaker Reel is an easily digestible way to highlight what and how you deliver.

We can help you create engaging videos that live online and brilliantly showcase the professional skills you have to offer.
