THE TEAM

The premises rock! We ’ve got lawn. We ’ve got shiny hip offices. We 've even got a pool room. But if you really want to see what’s really awesome about SSQ, you ’d better meet the Team.

George has been leading the agency since 2013, forming the backbone of SohoSquare culture upon his significant experience in ad industry, his all-collaborative spirit, his anthropocentric approach and that.. trademark baritone laughter of his. Focusing on the bright spots, on opportunities and solutions he has managed to develop many fruitful relationships between the team and some of the country leading accounts. If you want to see him light up like a Christmas tree, present him a good challenge or a glass of single barrel Irish scotch or a chance for a deep dive in the sea (ominous diver). But please, for his own sake, never at the same time.

Look at a crowd. Then look for an Asian-looking, low-profile girl, with a small fox terrier that she treats like her baby boy. That’s her. Kallina. Her open-hearted laughs and humble approach on everything, would never hint that she’s a holder of some of the most prestigious awards domestically and internationally. Nor that she’s a pure soccer fanatic. A nasty one.

nikos.vavakis@ssq.gr
+30 210 6660040

In his current life Nikos is a Creative Director but we are pretty sure that in some past reincarnation he was a chameleon. A valid assumption, considering he can transform into different personalities fitting the brand he is dealing with every time. Instead of advertising awards he should have Oscars on his shelf. But life isn’t fair. That’s why he has neither a career in Hollywood, nor hair.

Listen to that fierce tapping sound all day around the hallways. It’s Fani running up and down, organizing all sorts of things on.. her designer heels. Beauty meets brains in this no-nonsense negotiator, tough financial controller and fascinating person, whose 20-year presence in the ad business has brought nothing but a long line of successes.

Proud Pug Mother

anna.protopsalti@ssq.gr
+30 210 6660046

Anna is passionate about CRM. And pugs. A “genuine Greek pugmommy” as she likes to call herself. Isn’t that cute? Maybe a bit weird? Anyway…
A tough financial controller with a straightforward apPRoach who hates to hear that something “can’t be done”, Anna multitasks the hell out of everything and is organized at the OCD level (so think twice before moving something on her desk). She is proactive…about being proactive with proposals & solutions and she really loves talking about trips, food and drinks. And carbon dioxide gas in drinks. That’s very specific,
but that’s Anna. Specific and sparkly like fizz.

This guy’s discipline and obsession for detail is notorious. There is no amount of workload that Kostas won’t grapple with successfully, thus leading the studio with maximum efficiency. But despite his frenzied work rhythm, he lights up the workplace with his colorful sense of humor and bright smile.

An art director trapped in a drummer’s body. He has a huge talent at Photoshop and a bigger one at using his tablet pen as a drumstick. He lives in a parallel universe but no one can safely say what happens there exactly. Except that it is populated with great aesthetics. Konstantinos is blond, green-eyed and obscenely gorgeous-looking. This was written by a woman.

The innocent baby-faced giant. Innocent because deep in his heart he believes that Michael Jackson is still alive. Giant because he is a giant copywriter and a giant – period. And baby-faced because he is, well, baby-faced. If you want to get him to write the script of the century, a dish of youvetsi will do the trick. He has seen every commercial of every country of every continent on the planet. And their cut versions.

After having worked at the biggest advertising agencies, with some of the country’s best creative people and for the greatest brands in Greece, Nikos is rightfully considered a veteran Art Director. But most of all, Nikos is a genuine artist. After each project, clients don’t know whether they want to publish the ad, or hang it on their living room wall. True story.

Smoothly disguised as a Norwegian lumberjack, Nestoras “Inva” Kechagias, leads a double life. Some days he is the sleek street artist that bombed with color and magnificent urban illustrations the streets of Thessaloniki and Athens. Some others he is the cyber nerd–pixel-sensitive–Star Wars aficionado–web designer that makes works of art out of applications and micro sites.

“The man that has gone through all of the Internet” is the nickname that we met him by. Creative in numerous ways, Kostas, a music producer/screen-writer/pro-drummer and YouTube scholar, keeps coming up with unexpected ideas from all sorts of directions. His distinguishing kindness blends smoothly with his rock ‘n’ roll background, leading to a classy cerebral result. Did we mention that he is a great copywriter as well?

Once upon a time there was this funny, sensitive, romantic circus clown who fell in love with this beautiful, hard-working, focused and efficient businesswoman. Some years later they had a baby girl that got every single one of their best features. Some more years later, that girl started working at Sohosquare. Her name is Erica. And setting aside the “best features” part, everything else is imaginary. Nevermind that, after all sometimes we wonder if she is real too.

Nothing can disturb the Zen approach that Theodore brings in the problem solving procedure.

Naturally curious and ready to put all things to the test, Yannis hides his "digital crusader cape and tights" under a clean-cut business profile. Some say that when the night falls he likes to get lost within the most obscure Reddit threads, and that he maintains a private, high-security server just to host his vast .GIF collection. When not obsessed with a project, he enjoys watching some fine NBA basketball or lining up for limited sneaker releases.

Elias can "speed walk". It's that fine art of running super fast but with extremely smooth and confident moves so you can get everything done without having anyone stressed out! He is that kind of guy. And most of the time he can crack jokes while speed walking, problem solving and e-mail bursting. Which, in our fierce line of work, is some sort of worship-worthy super power!

To start with. Stelios is a ninja. And now that you have found out, you are in danger. The past 10 years he has worked for some of the top advertising agencies of Greece. But they don’t know it. (ninja stuff). Awards? Some. Missing judges? Many. His work reflects his character and he always tries to get better. Give him a try. Throw him a difficult task and he will come back marching on a shiny disco ball lead by eighteen purple seahorses, carrying bags of ideas and some nunchucks on fire, obviously.

A hot headed Egyptian with a splash of Greek loudness, Amanda swapped seagulls for pigeons and decided to try her skills in the advertising industry after her Graphic Design studies. An artist with a tint of Salvador Dali’s taste, a coffee junkie (her creativity depends on it), and an illustrator. She entwines all her skills in her artwork with significant emotional attachment to everything she does. Oh and... she’s scared of Charlie Chaplin.

Where would a modern Rapunzel possibly be found? In front of a Mac most of the time, working from multiple desktops giving the final touches to her designs. From maths and mechanics to art and design, Katerina knows how to keep a perfect balance between the left and the right side of her brain (well, most of the times, maybe less than most). Being a citizen of the world and having lived in 4 different countries, explains why she is a well-known discoverer of hidden urban gems.

Vaggelis is young at age, but if he had grandkids, he’d have countless stories to share with them. He is a talented designer, “home” grown. Vaggelis is a rare breed: a conceptual designer. In his free time, he gets tatted up. With a chisel. On himself. You can spot him wearing glasses - though surprisingly not far-sighted - with a black leather neck strap. Vaggelis is a young grandpa. He is Serkizis’ Waldorf.
