Brave Little Belgium is a content platform curated by Creative Belgium.
We look at Belgium's top work from an international perspective.
'Why is it brave and typically Belgian?'

our mission statement

100 years ago, they called us brave little belgium.
Or 'these little fuckers.' We had our own ideas.
When they asked us to step in line, we peed on their shoes.
Dangerous. But brave.
That typifies us, Belgians.
So let's be proud of our brave ideas. And show them.
By gathering the best work from hellhole and beyond,
we make the rest pee their pants again.
Because the little fuckers are back.

Built To Resist 2023

Mutant set out on a mission to translate Eastpak's timeless motto into a new era. The result is a multichannel campaign that will run across social media, digital channels, in-store and OOH. 'Built to Resist 2023' not only brings to life the Eastpak DNA of positivity and creative self-expression, but also demonstrates and reinforces its most prominent product characteristic: sustainability. Since every Eastpak bag has a 30-year warranty, it is not inconceivable that Eastpak will still be around when humanity explores new territory on Mars.

When you think of Eastpak, you think of fun, brave & venturous. That is why Mutant chose to showcase the product in a challenging and futuristic environment. 'Built to Resist 2023' looks ahead to the future where humanity explores life on Mars. The cinematic film shows a society in which we no longer live on planet Earth, but still fill our leisure time the same way. Our new home makes us long for adventure and revives our youthful energy of exploration and fun.
