Call yourself Über?
If you are going to call yourself Über you’re going to have to work very hard every day to live up to your name. Your service has to be over and above, your ideas have to shine brighter and your results need to be consistent. It means winning awards is a by-product not a goal. It means taking your work seriously and yourself not so. It means learning and understanding exactly who your clients are, exactly what they do and exactly who their customers are. It means only providing a service when you can provide it impressively. You have to be passionate, knowledgeable and love what you do.
Hello. We are Über.
Through our 10 year history we have built successful relationships across the entertainment industry with such established brands as Sony, BAFTA, 505 Games, 20th Century Fox, BFI, BBC, Warner Bros. Games, THQ and Bethesda.
Most recently we have developed projects including Aliens: Colonial Marines for Sega, Skylanders for Activision, Jack the Giant Slayer for Warner Bros. Pictures, building adventures for Lego Video Games and launching OnLive.
Concepts, branding, keyart, packaging, press, digital & social campaigns, trailers, POS and print. Put short, we do the lot.
