Jungle 21 (J21) integrates the cultural research and futures design lab Invisible. The move is part of the company’s inorganic growth strategy and follows the addition of creative boutique PINK to the ecosystem in recent weeks. This is J21’s fifth integration and the second since the company went public at the beginning of March. J21 has created a unique integration model that allows it to maintain a decentralized organization and preserve the independence of its different members while creating free collaborative links and intelligent synergies between companies.
Founded by Stef Silva, specialized in Futures Thinking, Invisible is a performative space that explores new narratives, future strategies and investigates the creation of new products and services with a focus on innovation and design. Invisible has started working in a BBVA project and in different projects and ventures within the ecosystem.
Selected in 2021 as one of the 40 most influential futurists in Spain by Forbes magazine, Stef has been trained in European schools such as Goldsmiths, KaosPilot, Hyper Island and teaches postgraduate courses at IED, Miami Ad School, Universidad Europea and IE. Since founding Invisible, she has developed projects for Telefónica, Greenpeace, NTT Data and Orange Bank.
‘Having a project like Invisible and a talented person like Stef Silva is wonderful. Her way of understanding culture and futures’ methodologies brings great value to the ecosystem. This discipline is essential for companies that want to navigate this changing, uncertain and volatile world’, according to Agustín Vivancos, J21 CEO and Founder.
‘Invisible helps companies and organizations reflect on business from a critical perspective and develop the imagination to anticipate future needs. It helps them create new possibilities through new narratives, identities and innovative strategies from design. My intention is to bring about better futures’, states Stef Silva.
Invisible’s addition to the J21 ecosystem will bring projects a prospective and speculative strategic thinking to reformulate brands and businesses from a more sustainable and reflective perspective. Silvt began to developed such work from PS21 to clients such as SAP, Ryans, Marriot and Pepsico, which led Jungle21 to integrate a specialized unit.
JUNGLE 21’s creative ecosystem was listed on Euronext Paris on March 4 in order to continue its expansion process. It is made up of 150 employees and currently includes the independent companies PS21, creative agency; True, communication agency with creative DNA; Redbility, product design and digital services consultancy; ES3, digital agency; PINK, creative boutique and the recently incorporated cultural and futures lab Invisible. J21 is creating a new company model with a radical positioning that puts creativity at the center.
