↘ What is communication and why is it important for my business?
In a world full of visual and verbal stimuli, it is important to convey your company's story clearly. Each medium has its own strengths and its own limitations. We like to help create order, get back to the essence and reach the target audience through the right channels.
↘ What distinguishes The Barbarians from other agencies and freelancers?
You'll discover the detailed answer on our about page. The short answer? We have a heart for entrepreneurs and brands, love discovering and amplifying stories. We do this not only with branding and communication. Also with a healthy dose of self-deprecation, by seeing you as a partner and with far-reaching support throughout the process.
↘ What clients and sectors do you work for?
We do like challenges and work for (almost) every sector: from hospitality to culture, to law and real estate. We work for target groups and don't think in boxes. Ideally, we speak directly to the decision-makers. That way, we get straight to the heart of the matter and there is little noise in the information flow. Want to get a good idea of our assignments?

↘ I am looking for one partner for all my graphic and communication needs. What services do you offer?
We believe in our approach of offering multiple services under one roof because everything affects each other. We have a lot of expertise in branding, name branding, customised websites, copywriting, tone of voice, photography and video, social media management and content marketing. Pure advertising work and PR are not our core business. Read more about our services here.
↘ Branding, website, copywriting and social media: I am interested in all these services. How long does such a complete project take?
If you contact us for the full package, we will tackle things thoroughly and in a coordinated way. Some processes run simultaneously, but these indicative timings give you an idea:
- Branding: 6 to 8 weeks
- Brand story: 6 weeks, more or less
- Website: 16 to 18 weeks
- Social media: 4 weeks, more or less
↘ And after my project? Can I permanently rely on your expertise?
Ofcourse you can! We believe in long-term partnerships. We see ourselves as a loyal supporter of you and your company and are always available as a sparring partner for additional marketing and communication challenges.
↘ Can I apply for the SME portfolio?
Yes. Since 2023, we have been a recognised service provider for the SME portfolio for strategic advice. Find out more about the conditions on the VLAIO website.
↘ What investment are we talking about in an overall project?
We always try to make a budget estimate as realistic as possible at the start of the project. The budget is sometimes subject to changes within the project, so it is not always possible to budget exactly. For a total project, an investment in the price range of 15 to 20,000 euros is a realistic estimate. Through the SME portfolio, an intervention of up to 30% is possible for strategic services.
