talent for hire

Pen & Paper is a crowd of senior advertising talent for external hire. Hand-picked and tested on local projects in Central and Eastern Europe by experienced agency veterans, our freelancers are guaranteed to be reliable, flexible, and easy to onboard.

Soft Skills

We firmly believe that character matters, so we only hand-pick experts with outstanding communication skills and conscientious work ethic.

Experts Only

All of the people we offer are tried and tested thoroughly on local projects first. We only pick the best; and know many of them personally.

Competitive Prices

Based in Central and Eastern Europe, we can offer high-quality professionals for less due to the optimized living expenses of our experts.

Try before you buy

We like our talents to work closely and regularly with a limited number of partners. To build trust, we like to start with a smaller test job – why not give it a shot before you commit?
