Happy 12th Birthday to us!

cake_sToday we are celebrating 12 years of MB. We have started the day with cake and a champagne breakfast in our London reception… and our other studios in Zurich, Tokyo and San Francisco will be celebrating too.

As MB founder Ben pointed out in a greeting (sent from San Francisco), a lot of things have changed in the industry since the studio started.

12 years ago students from Stanford University founded Google, mobile phones couldn’t send emails or access the web, Google street view was a distant dream, Wikipedia, Paypal, Spotify and Youtube didn’t exist. We were all buying music on CD and social media still involved meeting up in the pub.

When put like that, somehow it doesn’t just feel like MB’s birthday. It feels like everyone’s. Here is to another 12 years….


  • Happy Birthday to us indeed. I can’t believe it is 12 years already. I’m thrilled we have such a great business, such amazing people, such a potent offer and are in so many locations. Champagne and cake was a great way to start the day. Jim
