Dad’s banks challenged by neo-banks

Digital competitors are emerging in the financial sector with mobile apps attracting users. While we are not about to see Dad’s generation of banks collapse, it is in their best interests to learn what appeals to users most about these new digital banks and their efficient and creative apps.

“Hey, Dad… What’s an Ad?”

The question that my sons would ask me if they were not the progeny of an advertising 2.0 executive will undoubtedly face young fathers elsewhere soon. Just as previous generations asked “what’s a cheque?” “what’s a walkman?” or even “what’s full employment?” Do they know about toilet paper? Oh, great, phew! That would have been […]

Make the Wow Factor Great Again!

A man wearing a black turtleneck once said: ‘Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.’ That man was actually quoting British science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke’s third law, who was as right in 1973 as he is today. This is why so many scientists, engineers, designers, inventors and digital agencies, among others, strive […]

User Experience = Agencies’ New Core Business

The earth has revolved once more around the sun: we are in 2016 and the Digital Transformation is in full swing. Faced with a world of digital native start-ups, companies with physical operations used to appeal to specialist agencies. Now, though, they are increasingly running their own digital operations. The agencies need to rethink their […]

Will Covid-19 durably transform the way we work?

At the end of 2019, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) were still fairly niche technologies. Even in video games, immersive worlds were not succeeding in enticing the general public, despite the release of major titles dedicated to these platforms, such as Half-Life: Alyx and the hugely popular Pokemon Go. But since the explosion of the Covid-19 pandemic in early 2020, which could impact us for quite a while, things have been evolving. We can now expect an increase in the practical applications of AR and VR in our daily lives, on both personal and professional levels. This is exciting news — which we desperately need in these troubled times.

AI Boosts Better User Experiences

Emakina Group CEO Brice Le Blévennec shares some ideas on the impact of AI. We live in a world where idiocracy seems unstoppable. It is on a conquest of the minds and hearts of people, frightened by just about everything and its opposite. At the same time, artificial intelligence keeps on progressing, entirely unconcerned about […]

Emakina Celebrates 15th Birthday

Will the office of the future fit on the tip of our nose?

One of the main benefits coming out of the 2020 annus horribilis is technology’s impact on the future of office work. Remote working could just become the norm in sectors where it is feasible. In 2019, 22% of Belgian workers were already regularly working remotely (compared to 5% in the EU). These numbers will certainly rise drastically in the (very near) future. Giants of the web, with Facebook in the lead, seem confident that tomorrow’s office will be virtual.

Cannes 2016: Reinventing Agencies Lead the Way

Insights by Andrew Berglund (@_AndrewInc) Executive Creative Director at Emakina Silicon Value This year’s theme appeared to be about agencies reinventing themselves. It’s about redefining their offer and in fact underlining their need to be agile, and not rooted in one solution suffering from “the Madison Avenue syndrome”. Instead the trend is more towards “Silicon […]
