“Working with Axel and his Creative Hub gave us different angles at looking at preconceived format concepts which was extremely invigorating for us”


Assaf Gil – Founder and CEO, Gil Formats

”We’ve really enjoyed working with Axel & his young team. We’ve found Creative Hub a very useful tool, not only too test some concepts but also to tap into some genuinely fresh, innovative and contemporary ideas – some real ‘thinking outside of the box’ stuff”.


Peter Van den Bussche – EVP International Sales & Business Development, Head of UK, Eccholine

“We have been working together with the Creative Hub for quite some time now to our great pleasure. We’re always surprised with refreshing ideas coming from a young generation. The ideas are creative, insightful, and inspiring. This way of working together is beneficial for both sides since we believe that the best way to learn how to create formats is by doing it and then reviewing them. 

We are already looking forward to the next batch of ideas!”


Geertje Hoek – Managing director Talpa Concepts by Talpa
