Jens Heimburger Is Smart…
I must say that I have a strange relationship with this Danish Entrepreneur. He is – without having ever talked to him – (called once a got negative response) – a conservative. Background in Danish
In the early nineties – when I was trying to go to University (with bad luck) my friend (Henrik) was working at Heimburger Advertising – a VERY COOL Agency – that reminded me of my at the time favorite TV-soap: Melrose Place 🙂 – everyone was wearing VERY COOL 1993 clothing style – belt just under the brest 😉 – and they had free soda and the very newest computers and even a T1 line.
In one line: All I could ever dream of!
– simple as that.
So – I was often at the agency with my friend – hanging out when they did sysadmin stuff – or just scanned some of the bosses private pictures…
Jens Heimburger was a legend – I never saw him there – but he had real Art (not something we had in my childhood home) and he had the A-list client accounts (Bestseller & AcceptCard and used top models – uhhh hot) – and he was friends with bizz celebreties – wow – only weird thing was his political standpoint – and the fact that he fucked up in his was to the political power – and one of the most interesting Danish movies ever was supposingly build on his story . And the Heimburger (the Agenzy) later stole an employee from us (at Ne@tWork)- and we got really angry – really.
Just lately Mr. H has made one of the best deal in Danish history – m2 designer homes – all he did was to produce 10 ads around the theme designer architecture – and put them in Danish papers – and without selling ONE HOUSE – HE SOLD THE CONCEPT for 20mio$ – thats impresssing (if one is into kapitalism).
