1. Think core
From a perspective where the glass is still half full, these are interesting times.
And they are still a-changin’, as Bob Dylan prophesised back in 1963.
Yes, these are times where many fundamental beliefs are shaken, establishment and systems are under pressure. It is no longer business as usual. Yet opportunity still knocks for those who dare to rethink economy and ecology, growth and degrowth, wealth, labour and leisure. Who create new business models, operate according to a lean and mean philosophy, are true to themselves and believe in fair share.
It is all a matter of mindset. Think core, and move on.
2. Work hard
Life is all about stories. People are all about stories. So is doing business.
At Mindset we help our clients make and tell their stories, about where they come from and where they are heading.
Their drive, their dreams. Stories about innovation and re-inventing yourself, tales of hope and success, struggle and misfortune, change and resistance.
We share visions of growth with you, and our observations of the inner and outter worlds. We talk about leadership and social entrepeneurship and question old definitions in a new context.
Telling those stories works well, both for our clients and their target audiences. As we use to say at Mindset: Think core. Work hard. Do good. Be smart.
Having said all that, now what’s your story? We love to listen.
3. Do good
Having been a marketing slash communications slash branding slash creative intelligence agency™ now for more than 30 years, we at Mindset honestly can say that we have invented, created and produced above, below and through all thinkable lines of advertising, public relations and sales promotion for a wide variety of big names and companies in almost every type of business. We’ve also had our fair share of campaign nominations.
We can tell you great stories about it over an espresso or cappuccino, or green tea if you prefer, or even a cool glass of energetic Kangen Water®
Today we specialise in magazine formats: branded, customised and targeted. You can click below to see a selection of magazine covers we have produced lately. Yes, they are printed. We are authentically retro.
Don’t you just love the scent of a freshly printed magazine? That crisp sound of the pages turning? Consuming content at your own pace, anytime, anywhere, without worrying about batteries getting low.
And rest assured, contemporary as we are, we take care of online adaptions.
(We do video also, but that’s a different story.)
These magazine formats are proven marketing tools. We produce them according to our own ‘M³ philosophy’ which covers the company (Me), the direct ecosystem (Market) and outter environment (Macro).
Want to talk about it? We are all ears.

4. Be smart
There is a story about the building where the Mindset office is. It has a grand history. Het Kapelhuis (‘The Chapelhouse’) was build in 1521 A.D. This late Gothic building was the meeting place of the Brotherhood of Our Lady. This Brotherhood had control over the chapel and was actually responsible for the city of Amersfoort becoming a place of pilgrimage.
In the chapel there was a statue of Mary. Several miracles were attributed to this statue, thus causing a huge influx of believers who believed their diseases would be cured (source: Archief Eemland).
