Cross your heart.


MATES is more than a name. It’s our attitude and our promise to you: Those who come to us, enter as and stay friends. We live and love our community and always have a sympathetic ear, an open eye and outreached hand, if you ever need help on your career path. And even if we’re not doctrinaires, there are a few things that are important to us and that we live at MATES.

We don’t follow prejudices, hierarchies or cliches. Be who you are and become who you want to become.

Fair payment, fair working hours and a fair togetherness is the fundament of every good business relation. This is what we stand up for.

MATES is not an ego-, but a community-trip, as know-how multiplies when you share it.

MATES allows you to decide for yourself, what is most important for you and your professional career.

From creatives with creatives for creatives.


Our team can look back on many year’s experience in the creative industry. We know its pleasant sides, but also the challenges that comes with it. And exactly those motivate us everyday anew, to improve things and create an offer that is tailored to your needs.
