The Agency

We are DDB Remedy, a global creative agency dedicated to health and wellness. Our goal is to improve people’s health, fitness and wellbeing. We deal with everything – from grand global strategies to bespoke experiences and content, from South Korea to Brazil, from medical aesthetics to rare diseases and everything in-between.


We believe the best idea is the one you never saw coming and the thing that catches you so off guard that you can’t look away. The only path to genuinely unexpected works is through creativity that is foreign, surprising and interesting enough to raise an eyebrow, cause jaws to drop and sales to soar. It’s having the fresh perspective and raw energy to bring something into the world that no one’s ever seen before. It’s about having the courage to shake things up and maybe even tear a few things down.


Diversity and inclusion is at the heart of everything we do at DDB. It’s the freedom to be and it flows through our work, our people and us as individuals. Everyone has the right to be treated equally and with respect. Be that Age, Disability, Education, Ethnicity, Gender, Gender identity, National Origin, Race, Religion or Sexual Orientation. Everyone has the right to this freedom and creating this culture is our priority.



We will always strive for this. This is our promise. If you need any adjustments to complete your application or to interview please let us know.

Bringing together diverse thinkers with different backgrounds, we strive to maintain a culture that is wildly creative and as human as the work that we do.


We seek out people who challenge themselves, have a relentless curiosity and overcome anything thrown their way.
