How we work

We enjoy working closely with our clients on a long-term basis (retainer) e.g. as their PR and Communication representative. We are also open to stand-alone communication campaigns such as the launch of a new destination, collection or platform.

We offer a range of services from strategy workshops and in-depth analysis to hands-on campaign execution. Our service is based on research and analysis and the initial step is always to analyze the client’s needs through listening, studying and asking questions.

Depending on the task and scope of a project, we collaborate with a range of skilled digital forerunners, graphic designers, writers, filmmakers, photographers and other creative mavericks.
