Philipp und Keuntje is a creative agency in Hamburg offering traditional advertising and digital services. It was founded in 1999 by Dominik Philipp and Hartwig Keuntje, old school friends who had also worked together at Springer & Jacoby and later Jung von Matt. They were named as Ad Agency "Men of the Year" for 2013 by trade magazine HorizonT. The partners continue to work within the business, though they are no longer directly involved in day-to-day operations. Instead, the agency is run by a seven-man executive board headed by CEO Torben Hansen. PuK was long associated with cornerstone client Jaegermeister. However that account moved away in 2014 after more than 12 years. The agency won back trade marketing for the brand at the end of 2016. In the rapidly consolidating market, PuK accepted an offer in 2019 to be acquired by another owner-managed group, Fischer-Appelt, which is best-known for PR and promotional marketing. Its founder Andreas Fischer-Appelt becomes chairman of the combined group, which will have revenues of around €80m annually. Philipp also joins the merged group in an advisory role; Keuntje becomes group creative director. PuK initially retained a separate identity, working alongside sister agency Fisher-Appelt. At the end of 2019, however, it became the main creative agency within the group, absorbing the equivalent operations of Fischer-Appelt in Berlin. The remaining Fischer-Appelt business will now focus on PR.

Adbrands Daily Update 9th Dec 2019: "Tilted World". German indie agency Philipp und Keuntje proves it can hold its own against the big boys in this superb film for Audi. It's an attention-grabbing concept, executed with considerable style, but more than a little disingenuous. The idea, of course, is that the all-electric Audi puts the world back in balance, just like buying the apples that don't come in plastic wrap. Yeah, right. It might not use fossil fuels - a major plus-point - but of course the car itself is filled to the brim with plastic-based parts and components, and lithium batteries have their own significant carbon footprint. Still, we get the idea.
