Spies & Assassins is a creative technology shop.  We make stuff.  Useful and interesting technology stuff for web, mobile, social, and in-store.  We build apps, platforms, APIs and, sometimes, even physical products — for brands, for agencies, for consumers and for ourselves.

We’re into the cloud, location-based services, spreadablity, co-creation, 3D-projection, mash-ups, RFID, 3D-printing, data visualization, micro-broadcasting, robots, beautiful design, intuitive interfaces and the gameification of life.

Spies is a joint venture between MDC Partners and kirshenbaum bond senecal + partners and was founded in early 2010 by Ed Brojerdi (Chief Creative Technologist, kbs+p), Faris Yakob (Chief Innovation Officer, MDC Partners), and Matt Powell (Executive Director of Creative Technology, kbs+p).

“Spies & Assassins has been incredibly liberating for us,” says Brojerdi. “For the first time, we aren’t exclusively working against a client brief. We’re inventing products for ourselves. Each new product has the potential to be a stand-alone micro-business. If it makes sense to pair up with a brand, we can go that route. If not, we’ll market products we make directly to consumers ourselves.”

Current S&A clients include PUMA, Georgio Armani, BMW and Capital One.
