What are we actually doing here
Grown up in the hot shop of our parents belongs communication design to our basic skills. Grown up between clients, time pressure, fun at work, a lot of creative minds and always new challenges, which make us develop and never stay standing. we don‘t think about this question.
Outsiders often cannot catch, what we are doing and how we are used to do our job. As communication designers we don‘t even make things more beautiful, we just make them visible. We force the communication between the offer and the user with design, word, image and interaction. We develop creative concepts, which touch emotionally for staying in memory positively. Like the smell from childhood which we carry with us and which takes us away with a warm hug by a little memory of it.
That it is exactly what intelligent communication concepts can achieve. They give brands an unique face and develop their image for decades to an inherant part of the marked.
What do we need for that // primarily knowledge – of the product, of the production, of the company, of the surroundings, of the target group, of the Zeitgeist, of the society, of politics, economy, environment, demographic etc. – that it is what we collect from joint talks, researches and life experience. We analyse, think, put together in new ways, think again and create new correlations, which seemed not to exist first. With this essence and with different analogue and digital helping tools are we developping a visual and verbal communication concept only for you and unique for your product.
That‘s the way we create advertising with attitude and mind and communication with as well as for people.
our solution path
The premise is to always think, act further than it is state of the art // Main Stream is yesterday and completely aberrant may be tomorrow. We don‘t want to impose abstract advertising concepts on our clients, but the goal is to think beyond the here and now and make it easy to step out of the crowd. Our core competence lies in seeing things differently and creating new connections that were previously unseen. This is how we understand your industry in a new and different way than you might. This doesn‘t mean that we don‘t understand what you do - we simply look at your work from different angles. This is how structures can be broken down and new contexts created.
