Agency Off Record

Tom Hägglöf LinkedIn logo icon


Tom wants to bring your brand to life with the right words for the right idea. At a time when people are reading less and less, he’s a firm believer in ‘less is more’ and always strives to make every word count.


Having grown up in Sweden and spent his adult life in the states, Tom has his feet planted firmly on both sides of the Atlantic. Seeing ads as a kid he’d always say: ‘I could do better than that’ and he’s been trying to prove it ever since. He spent the early years of his career honing his skills in New York City’s agency world and holds a degree in communications from Boston University.


  • Creative thinking and agonizing over word choice
  • Presenting work
  • Being a morning person
  • Favorite Things

    His cat Slinky, public speaking, Swedish salt-licorice, gardening, fermenting things, camping, and talking about Formula One until you begin to back away slowly.
