We're running projects using different set-ups to reach our client’s goals and challenge your creativity! We’ve solved hundreds of innovation challenges for the world’s top brands since 2007.
Our special NDA* guaranteed-payment opportunities for experienced creatives are named Invite Projects. A small number of creatives are hand-picked by jovoto to participate in these exclusive projects. You bring your consumer mindset, personal and cultural experiences, as well as diverse creative skills to the table and we're creating the best teams and framework to solve any creative challenge.
- Framing the challenge - We work with our clients to identify and frame the challenge and write the creative brief. We shortlist and invite creatives with the necessary skills for the project.
- Ideation and development - Selected creatives are required to submit their ideas and work collaboratively during ideation, giving and responding to feedback to refine concepts.
- Evaluation and completion - The client reviews submitted ideas and choose which they what to develop further. Creatives are paid directly from the platform complete with a credit note for records.
*Our projects are confidential and require your consent to sign an NDA agreement.

The creative brief summarises the relevant information you need to allow you to perform at your best. This includes the background, business challenges & goals, target group/s, deliverables, tonality, benchmark & success measurements, expectations, and the do's & dont's list.
We usually work in time frames of 2-3 weeks a project. Depending on the client's needs, we can decide to make it a short sprint of 10 days project or the contra of two-three phase project:
Phase first to explore and Phase two and more to develop the idea further and dive into details.
