Our symbol, mascot and spiritus rector is the flying fish. He leaves his element, changes his perspective and returns with new ideas and inspiration.
At facts and fiction, unique people combine their sense of humour, playfulness and passion with great expertise and analytical thinking. People who are skilled at changing perspectives and straying from the beaten path. In our team, humanities scholars, architects, scenographers, designers and project managers work closely together.
We intensively study topics and complex contents. In close cooperation with our clients and experts, we create narratives that are then translated by us into an appealing formal language.
We are facts and fiction. We tell conclusive and exciting stories in big pictures. Stories that come from the heart and go to the heart. Because people believe in the mind but decide with the heart. That's why communication that goes to the heart is quite reasonable.
international and national creative awards since – and still counting ...
e.g. BIE Awards, ADC Nägel, Galaxy Awards, Golden Awards of Montreux, FAMAB Awards, iF and red dot ...
At least as important, if not more important:
More than 10 million pleased guests visited our exhibitions, museums, pavilions and showrooms and attended our events.
For us, the responsibility starts at home, meaning the facts and fictioners. We treat each other with respect and stand up for each other. Well-equipped workplaces in an inspiring environment, individual support through further workshops and a responsible attitude towards working hours are all included in our contracts – to name just a few points.
We maintain an open and trusting relationship with customers and external partners, we act fairly and reliably, and we work for the success of a project, not solely for our own.
We also include trainees, interns and student interns in our team. We are committed to young talent in a variety of ways and give young people the opportunity to get to know everyday life in a creative agency.
We have been purchasing green electricity since 2008 and have been CO2-neutral since 2011. The latter is achieved through reforestation projects in collaboration with ArBolivia.
We support charitable initiatives with our know-how and manpower because we are convinced that it is our obligation to play an active role in shaping our society. In the past, for example, we have realised projects with RheinFlanke, the Cologne children‘s homes, the Mukoviszidose e.V. and the Bundesverband Deutsche Tafel e.V. (Federal Association of German Food Banks).
In addition, we also develop projects on our own initiative, simply because we are convinced of their importance.
We‘re no moralists, but we have our principles. This means that we do not work for certain customers or sectors, for example the tobacco and arms industries or for groups with anti- democratic or inhumane views.
PS: Over the past 20 years, more than 80 employee children have been born. facts and fiction does not take any responsibility for this, but it shows that we can combine job and family. And that facts and fictioners are also willing to take responsibility outside their work.
