Services

From strategy, to production to optimization and service.

Lukkien is a creative agency for online media, photography, film, CGI, graphic design, audio and more. We are an agency that has a strategic and creative vision on cross-medial campaigns and online marketing. Lukkien can fulfil many roles but is always focussed on creating remarkable and effective work. With all facilities underneath one roof, we think outside of the box and creativity and technology truly work together. That is what Lukkien is all about.

Digital

Lukkien can help you maximise your returns from interactive and digital media. We understand the communication channels and the resources through which you can reach your specific target groups, and what’s more, we can create all these resources. We develop Digital strategies that help our clients build and expand their brands. We can produce all the necessary content in-house. At Lukkien, concept development, creativity and state-of-the-art technology are all seamlessly integrated.

Strategy and concept

Strategy and concept

Lukkien can also provide your full strategy and concept development. Over the years, we have developed our own approach, with quick and practical results, without any frills. The starting point for our strategists is your brand identity, which they analyse from the viewpoint of your clients. Our art directors either start from scratch or follow a pre-selected course. Interaction design and web design provide an instantly usable blueprint for your website or other digital manifestations. A complete strategy also comprises technical and functional aspects, such as incorporating new solutions into your existing IT landscape.

Websites

Websites

Lukkien creates websites of all shapes and sizes, including corporate sites, product sites and e-commerce sites. We do this speedily and for a price agreed in advance. The cross-media nature of our business enables us to produce all the required photography and audiovisual content in-house. This speeds up the process and improves the quality. Throughout the project, you deal with just one partner. As the sites we build use the appropriate technology and standards, they are easy to maintain. Even when there are large volumes of traffic, the sites remain fast and stable. All elements, such as the use of full-screen online video and animations, help bring about the desired experience and, as a result, the best possible conversion.

E-commerce

E-commerce

E-commerce is one of Lukkien Digital’s specialisations. Our experience in offline retail channels helps in this respect. Our consultants know exactly what works so that you can achieve maximum conversion and keep the number of returns low. The basis of your webshop is formed by an open-source or commercial platform. This can be integrated into your back-office activities to include payment methods and can, if necessary, be linked to a fulfilment service. Since Lukkien has the largest photography studio in the Netherlands, as well as an abundance of audiovisual facilities, we produce large volumes of content quickly and cost-efficiently at the very best quality.

Mobile & Apps

Mobile & Apps

Lukkien Digital designs and builds mobile websites and apps. We have experience working with m-commerce and are fully au fait with the latest technology. Speed, clever interaction and a specially adapted lay-out contribute towards the required conversion. What’s more, our specialists are well-versed in the successful development and optimization of mobile sites and apps for a diversity of platforms. As a result, our mobile sites and apps deliver the same user experience on all smartphone and tablet platforms. They are easy to manage from the same environment as other websites.

CMS & Localization

CMS & Localization

Lukkien provides solutions that allow non-specialist IT staff to manage any type of content quickly and easily, whether static or interactive. Our systems are aimed at generating user experience and can handle any kind of interaction and e-commerce. If necessary, they also provide workflows and approval procedures. They help ensure that your websites stay optimized for search engines after every change. Lukkien Digital has specialized processes and tools at its disposal to create and update the most complex websites in numerous languages and country-specific versions. This doesn’t simply mean localizing texts, but all possible content too, including photography, film, animation and interactions. To this end, Lukkien can manage your country organisations for you, effectively taking over complete country management. Using detailed workflows, projects can be implemented in a process-driven way.

Optimization

Optimization

As soon as your site goes online, you can use your visitors’ user patterns to enhance your results. Lukkien Digital uses clickstream analyses, A/B tests and other analyses to improve navigation structures and to optimize the diverse forms of content, for example. This site optimization can significantly increase the conversion rates of webshops. By displaying your products in the right way, you sell more and have fewer returns. It’s all about the dozens of tiny details that all have to be right – conceptually, creatively and technically. The result is a website that achieves maximum performance.

Online marketing

Online marketing

Lukkien not only builds websites, but also makes sure they are successful. With our online marketing services, you can address your target group in the most appropriate and personal way possible to drawn them to your site. We listen to your needs and carry out all the required actions to bring about the right mix. Lukkien has the tools and the subject-specific experts to bring about Search Engine Optimization (SEO). We develop banner strategies and implement these. Email marketing is quick and effective with our easy-to-use dashboards and templates. We have a solid network that enables us to effectuate advertising campaigns via search engines as well as social and mobile media. For affiliate marketing, we provide complete solutions in collaboration with specialised partners.

Managed Services

Managed Services

Even after your website or digital solution has gone online, Lukkien Digital does everything necessary to ensure that things work as they should. Your website is a business-critical facility: every minute of downtime is at the expense of customers and turnover. For that reason, you can fall back on a fully equipped service and support desk, staffed by professionals who know your system inside out. The service and support desk operates in line with standardised processes, such as ITIL, and represents a fully-fledged service management solution. For larger organisations, we can also set up separate, fully serviced helpdesks. If required, your helpdesk can even be available 24/7.

Hosting

Hosting

Lukkien Digital’s activities do not stop at the development and effectuation of solutions. We also provide hosting (both shared and dedicated) and management services. SLAs guarantee accessibility and response times in the event of disruptions. Our data centres come fully equipped with battery packs, emergency generators, air-conditioning, gas extinguishing systems and biometrically controlled security. Bandwidth and access speed are guaranteed by a high-quality connection with the internet backbone. To be prepared for any eventuality, a back-up of all data is made once a day and transferred to an external location.

Partnerships

Partnerships

Lukkien Digital has a successful history of working with technology partners to deliver solutions that help you achieve maximum impact from your marketing communications. From growing user engagement and making sure your website and content are search engine optimized to providing one-on-one email campaign support for our clients, Lukkien is driven by finding state-of-the-art solutions.

Lukkien Casting

Lukkien Casting is Lukkien's own exclusive casting and model agency. We book models, actors and extra's of all ages. Originally Lukkien Casting existed of people surrounding Lukkien in Ede for photography and video shoots. Eventually it evolved into one of the biggest casting agencies of Holland.

Take a look at the website of Lukkien Casting.

Exclusive

Exclusive

Lukkien Casting works exclusively for Lukkien. This means that we only scout and cast models, actors and extra's for Lukkien productions.

Photography & Graphic Design

Images play a powerful role in communication. That’s why photography – for every application you can imagine – is at the heart of our business. Our photographers are experienced in a wide variety of specialist areas, from automotive to fashion and food. With such experts in-house, shoots can be planned and executed rapidly and reliably – ranging from a single shoot on location for a luxury brand to large volumes for a weekly flyer shot in our studios – it’s all possible. 

A message’s visual presentation in print strongly impacts whether or not it gets across. The artistic creativity of our graphic designers ensures it will, and their logistic creativity keeps the design process efficient and cost-effective. We can coordinate the design process from the concept stage to the finished product, whatever it is: a brochure, product packaging range or outdoor advertising.

Studio shoots

Studio shoots

Our photographers are experts in studio photography. They should be – we have a massive 20,000 m2 of studio facilities for them to work in. They’re used to shooting everything from trucks and cars, through couches and tables, to epilators and fine jewellery. Our set-builders, lighting technicians and stylists ensure the photographers have the complete freedom and support they need to work their creative magic.

Location shoots

Location shoots

Shooting on location can be unpredictable. But at Lukkien, we don’t have to leave anything to chance. To make sure we arrive and can start promptly, we have our own truck for equipment, as well as an Airstream caravan, with accommodation for models and stylists, catering facilities and lighting. We’ve built up an extensive database of locations that continues to grow, thanks to our ongoing scouting activities. This makes it easy to find the perfect location for any type of photo.

Food

Food

Photographing food is a highly specialised business. How can you keep perishable items looking natural, appealing and appetising under the bright, hot lights in a studio? It’s a team effort between the photographer, food stylist, image manipulator and CGI expert. We have the right facilities and we know how to find the right people – making sure we get shots that make the mouth water.

Automotive

Automotive

It’s often said – and rightly so – that cars are one of the most challenging objects to photograph. At Lukkien, we have the right equipment (including a full-size dome studio and the very latest computer-generated imaging (CGI) software) and the best people (including photographers, lighting experts and image manipulation artists) to produce superb automotive images. More importantly, we have the passion, patience and experience to ensure that your car will always appear at its best.

Fashion

Fashion

At Lukkien, we understand the world of fashion and contemporary style. We know how to show off fabrics, right down to the thread, and how to best display their natural fall. With our fashion unit, we’ve developed a unique way of optimising fashion images for e-commerce purposes, complete with image cataloguing, digital asset management system and product data capture – all with rapid turnaround time.

Lifestyle & Interior

Lifestyle & Interior

Does your image or storyboard require special indoor surroundings? Any type of home interior or work setting can be created at Lukkien by our talented set-builders and stylists. What’s more, our vast studios and storage facilities (20,000 m2) enable us to keep and re-use sets, ensuring continuity in any follow-up shoots, and saving on rebuilding costs. Where appropriate, we can arrange shoots on outdoor or indoor locations, though we can recreate daylight settings in our studios, too – often a more economical option than arranging a shoot on location.

Models

Models

Your product has a ‘personality’, and the appearance of the model helping to sell it has to fit perfectly, both with the creative concept and with your brand’s positioning. Long before the first photo is taken, our experts are working together with our in-house model agency to find the right model for your photos – whether you’re selling fashion, toys, lifestyle products or business services.

Flex Sets

Flex Sets

At Lukkien we have different kinds of flex sets available. Our set designers en stylists can easily transform these sets in all kinds of rooms. From a kidsroom to a kitchen: anything is possible. Because we work with flexible elements, like different types of doors, window frames, door fittings and sockets, the room can quickly be rebuild. Click here to see our Flex Sets

Image manipulation

Image manipulation

From simple retouching to complex image manipulation, we always make sure your product looks as good as it possibly can. Our retouching artists creatively eliminate any imperfections and subtly highlight the product’s most attractive features. When more substantial changes are needed – such as setting the product in a new background – our image manipulators take the photo as the basis of a completely new image.

Desktop publishing

Desktop publishing

Our desktop publishers design and develop any type of printed material – from ads, brochures and catalogues to POS displays and trade-show exhibits. In doing so, their aim is to create materials that maximise visual impact and build your brand.

Pre-press services

Pre-press services

Lukkien also carries out all the checks and adjustments needed before the finished layout goes to the printer, and can coordinate the printing process. Prior to printing, proofs are checked to make sure that everything is in order. Colour management is vital at this stage: this involves checking that the colour of the product in print will correspond exactly to the colour of the product in real life. This is done together with the client and, to save time, can even be done online using calibrated monitors.

Automated print production

Automated print production

For clients who issue regular publications, speed, flexibility and control are vital. They want to be able to create or adapt advertisements, brochures, folders or POS materials themselves, at short notice. We can tailor specially automated processes and tools that will enable you to do that whenever and (thanks to our online platform) wherever you are. Using specially designed templates, linked to a made-to-measure Digital Asset Management system, you can largely compile your own publications in-house and send them as certified PDFs directly to the printer or publisher.

Creation & concept

Creation & concept

To represent a product and to make it fit with the target group, our team of Art Directors will work along with you to make that translation. A translation that your message is shown by the right images powerfully. A creative journey that leads to a clear and concrete starting-point for the further process.

Audiovisual

Lukkien is an expert in the audiovisual field, having produced countless high-quality TV and radio commercials, infomercials, corporate films, 3D animations and streaming media clips for web use – many for international markets. From sound studios to in-house directors and a special effects team. Lukkien has all the facilities and talent  to make the best-quality productions at the lowest possible cost. 

TV commercials

TV commercials

Our audiovisual teams can create state-of-the-art TV commercials, making use of our extensive facilities, computer-generated imaging and visual effects skills. For global viewing, we can make productions in multiple languages, and take cultural factors into account regarding content. Thanks to our experience, we know how to make TV commercials highly efficiently. In that way, we keep the costs low – another clear benefit for our clients.

Radio commercials

Radio commercials

As with all other types of productions, Lukkien can create radio commercials from scratch, starting from basic concept development together with the client. Recordings can be made in our own sound studios, or remotely at studios anywhere in the world, using the latest high-quality digital links. This way, producing versions in multiple languages becomes even easier.

Film production

Film production

When your aim is to influence how people see your company or your brand, film is a highly effective medium. Lukkien has made many brand and corporate movies, as well as infomercials – everything from small video clips for use on the web or in stores to productions for viewing on a big screen. At Lukkien, we offer all the skills and facilities necessary for outstanding film productions – including our own directors, producers, cameramen, set-builders, lighting technicians, models and more. Where necessary, we call on our network of experienced specialists. All this enables us to deliver top-quality productions, in the studio or on location, with maximum efficiency – and maximum cost-effectiveness.

Post-production

Post-production

A film really comes together in post-production: editing the images, adding the soundtrack, incorporating special effects, colour corrections and animations . Our integrated way of working at Lukkien ensures the craftsmanship and quality of every end-product.

Visual effects

Visual effects

Does the film call for an aerial shot, an animated diagram or a virtual tour? Do certain scenes need to be assembled from various images? Does scenery need to be generated digitally? Lukkien’s experts are masters at creating amazing visual effects, in scenes that will blow your audience away!

Sound studio

Sound studio

Lukkien’s sound studios are fully equipped to handle productions of all kinds, from commercials to video soundtracks, including multiple-language versions. Our capabilities even extend to remote recording of voice talent from anywhere in the world in studio-quality sound, ensuring truly authentic pronunciation. Stock music is a sensible choice for many audiovisual productions. But when you want a unique and immediately recognisable sound-scape that “says” your brand every time it’s heard, then a specially composed theme or soundtrack is what you’re looking for. Our in-house composers can create songs and jingles that are appealing – and unforgettable.

Studio shoots

Studio shoots

Can our studios match up those of the classic movie-makers? We think so! They’re certainly pretty vast – one of the largest studio complexes in Europe. In all, 20,000 m² of studio facilities, with our own set-builders, lighting technicians and sound engineers. That means we can accommodate even the most ambitious audiovisual projects on-site.

Location shoots

Location shoots

When scenes need to be filmed on location, we’re ready. We scout out the right places, and make all the arrangements. We have our own truck and Airstream caravan to ensure maximum efficiency. And when filming far from home, we know the right local.

CGI

We’re so used to seeing our world in 3D that we often don’t realise how difficult it is to reproduce the fall of light and shadow, the subtle colour variations and depth of field that tell the brain where we are in relation to objects around us. Our 3D animation specialists are experts in working with these kinds of detail that create a world you can imagine stepping into. 

Product visualisation

Product visualisation

People like to see what they’re buying. But what if your product isn’t ready yet? These days, you sometimes need to get to market so quickly that the production of Marcom materials can’t wait until you have a finished product. We can create highly realistic product images directly from your CAD-CAM files, enabling you to prepare ads or POS materials well in advance of your launch date.

Animation

Animation

Our animation specialists can produce anything from cartoon characters to dynamic action images that can enliven your brand campaign or TV commercial. These range from animated diagrams and “exploding” views to 360-degree scenes that clearly explain complex processes or structures.

Moving  images

Moving images

Film is film and 3D is 3D, but suppose you want to combine them – placing a computer-generated 3D animation in a filmed setting with live action, for example? Our audiovisual team can do it so no one will ever know it wasn’t all filmed live. A real case of “Seeing is believing”!

Event location

As a full-service media production company, we have extensive studio space that lends itself extremely well to many other purposes besides the production of marcom materials. This space can be hired for special, large-scale events, such as prestigious product launches or spectacular TV shows.

Facts:
  • Studio's vary between 221 until 2.000 square meters
  • Capacity for max.1.500 people
  • Equipped with airconditioning, make-up space and a hydraulic platform

Our studio is equipped with make-up and dressing rooms, conference space and many parking spaces. If our planning allows it, we love to work with other TV production companies.
