Marvin Jacobs: As Editorial Director I work at creative online agency Born05. There I develop concepts for brands and I am responsible for content for online magazines and websites. Since 2017 podcasts have been added: within Born05 we develop branded podcasts for clients.
From the start of my career, I am concerned with the question of how to tell a good story. I started his career writing scripts for drama and comedy series. After that, I worked as a journalist for magazines and newspapers, including Nieuwe Revu, NRC Handelsblad, and HP / De Tijd.
Since 2010 I tell stories from brands. For example, I stood at the cradle of one of the world’s first international magazines for the iPad, commissioned by Volkswagen.
In 2013 I ended up at the Utrecht office Born05. Together with a multidisciplinary team, I develop online concepts, content strategies and editorial content for brands such as KPN, KLM, and ING. In the hours that I do not work, I listen to as many podcasts as possible. I am a big fan of this medium. I frequently write about the latest developments for the Dutch Media Network.
