map creative is an ideas agency and design bureau.


We are passionate about ideas, creativity and design-thinking. Founded in 2008 by Carl Lindgren and Wendy Schipper, the business started as a spin off from the highly successful map magazine. The launch was a natural response to clients’ demands for more bespoke and authentic solutions for reaching their audiences.


We are passionate about creating relevant ideas for our clients’ brands and their communities – particularly those ideas that are creating positive change. The team at map creative is a group of individuals with diverse experience, backgrounds, passions and interests. We love what we do. We are idea engineers, cultural anthropologists, designers, dreamers, writers, strategists, digital technologists, animators, coders, analysers, and trend forecasters. We live, breathe and consume pop culture. The team at map creative regularly travel the world in search of inspiration and for pop culture trends. Whether it’s advertising, social media, fashion, design, architecture, books, music, magazines, film, art or technology, at map creative, there’s no satiating our thirst for pop. We’re constantly on the look out for something new, unconventional or undiscovered. We offer this knowledge to our clients.
