Back in 1999, Iris was founded by a team of seven young entrepreneurs.
Bored of big agency politics and frustrated by bureaucracy, they broke away from the Publicis Groupe with one shared belief: it could be done differently.
They wanted to create a new kind of agency. One that was more agile, ambitious, adventurous and innovative.
One that was more, For the forward.
Those seven founders are still at the very heart of Iris - now a 1000 strong team, spread across 17 global offices.
For the forward is a clear statement about who we are right for: curious, progressive, restless individuals. And adventurous spirits.
It means we’re constantly working with talent, disciplines and ideas that we’ve never experienced before. And creating pioneering, rule breaking, world firsts.
From delivering a record-breaking gig on a plane with Sony Ericsson, and putting people on the moon with Samsung. To reinventing motorsport for the electric era with Formula E, and shaping the future of women’s football with Barclays.
We’re always in pursuit of our next thunder-bolt moment.
