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.

+30 210 6660065

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.

The CV describing her should be so impeccably structured that none of the agency’s copywriters had enough guts to write it.

Yorgos
GAREFALAKIS

Creative Director
MC (Minister of Collaboration)
Forkin’ Beast

yorgos.garefalakis@ssq.gr
+30 210 6660055

Yorgos chants his “I, I, I” mantra for “Insights, Incentives & Immersion” with multidisciplinary and award-winning results, locally and internationally. He has a deep affection for feverish brainstormings. Sometimes during the evenings you can hear him voice to the rest of the crew “keep it playful” with that characteristic spirited confidence of his. We believe that part of his “characteristic spirited confidence” comes from the belief that if he messes up in the ad business, he can always open up a restaurant and cook for a living.

+30 210 6660036

During his years in advertising, Stelios has worked with some of the brightest creative minds and for that he is grateful – and proud. The same holds true for the campaigns he has created for Greek and international brands. When not meeting deadlines, he taps into his inner muse looking for fresh ideas and creative stimuli. He hasn’t coined the motto “Minds are like parachutes: they only function when they are open” but very much wishes he had.

tasoula.petrakou@ssq.gr
+30 210 6660035

Hailing from the dark ages of pre-social media advertising, Tasoula is a force to be reckoned with. A tried and tested multi-tasker, she can pull off even the most demanding brief with grace and successful results. On the co-worker front, hardly a day goes by without her energizing presence and fizzy attitude. Outside the office, Tasoula is best enjoyed with finely-cooked seafood, good friends and fun atmosphere. After all, isn’t that what good champagne is like?

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.

Stella, a girl synonym of style and femininity, is the woman every man dreams to be – if he were a woman. Meet a seasoned sailor, alpine skier, and better cook than your mom, but not to veer off the subject, a veteran art director with 15 years expertise at the world’s biggest ad agencies, and proud owner of many shoes.

konstantinos.frangoulis@ssq.gr
+30 210 6660034

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.

Michael-Jackson-Is-Alive Believer

alex.esslin@ssq.gr
+30 210 6660033

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.

+30 210 6660041

Angeliki worked in the advertising industry for the first time in September 2010 and she has been creating some of the most conceptual ads in Greece ever since. Before that, she was living a normal life. Her work is filled with humor and wittiness, which is something odd since there are only three people who claim that they have seen her laugh. None of them are willing to reveal their true names and identities.

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.

eleni.tempelou@ssq.gr
+30 210 6660042

Eleni, as an Art Director, brings way more than the expected concepts and aesthetics. Her distinctive, rational way of thinking and the strong strategic foundations of each of her concepts are valuable tools to an accurate yet feisty brainstorming session. Oh, she is feisty. Don’t let that scholarly look mislead you, that girl has tons of rock ‘n’ roll inside her... but probably neatly packed.

Yota has a thing for making people cry. And laugh. And feel excited. And sometimes scared. 
Thankfully, all by her writing. And she is really good at it. She smiles a lot but gets really mad when TV commercials are interrupted by movies. Did we say that she smiles a lot?

Although a huge fan of Big Bang Theory, Spyros is not your average nerd. He is cool, he is handsome with a killer smile and so passionate with graphic design he can set his Wacom on fire just by trying out millions of different smiles on a doodle, until he gets the one that feels right!

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.

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!

Her strong affection for cats can explain several of her charming yet rather bizarre characteristics. She is super-playful and nirvana-chill at the same time. There is nothing that can get on her nerves, and if that ever happens she'll just purrrrr away her pointed yet classy lines and keep working in a state of calm elegance, until her work is properly done!

She ‘ll dribble her way into every single client brief and do a 360 slam dunk in the 360 communications strategy basket. When not account managing, she will coach the Group's basketball team.

This, combined with her effortless sweetness and kindness make her one of the agency’s sweethearts.

She also possesses the proper amount of rock ‘n roll that is required for someone to handle 3 kids at home and 30 more at the office!
