Since the start, Original has been totally focused on building a creative, strategic and innovative driven service that helps our clients to grow.
We are team of experts and use our creativity seriously in solving your business or communication problems. The Original was founded in October 2005 by Suna Tancig and Benjamin Ivančič, internationally recognised creatives.
No client is too large or too small for us. We are used to handling complex projects and our work feels comfortable in any country and region it has been created for.
We work with a flexible team of the best and interesting international and domestic creative and strategic minds. All our people are very experienced and share the true passion for exceptional works. We have proven that only good ideas count.
Our mission is to make our clients successful and also to make the world around us a nicer place.
Original ideas are priceless.
I respect and enjoy creative expression, aesthetics, harmony and humour. I am dedicated to practising and teaching the old Chinese martial arts, love to fly planes, ski, play tennis, used to ride horses and can’t imagine life without music. I come from Ljubljana and have travelled a lot since a young age.
Besides outstanding ideas I am attracted to unexpected turns in the stories of Roald Dahl, Ray Bradbury, adore Monty Python and Kung Fu Panda.
My creative work has been winning the hearts of clients and juries (New York Festivals, Epica, Cresta, Adprint, Golden Drum, IABC Gold Quill, SOF, Sempl, Brumen, Magdalena, and more). I've been a member of juries at international advertising festivals (New York Festivals, Golden Drum).
