Strategy, creativity, and innovation for the era of digital disruption.
We have a deep understanding of the challenge the shift from traditional to digital poses not only to brands and publishers, but to enterprises and businesses around the world.
We support our clients in finding new business opportunities like we did with BMW i Ventures, investing in the development of disruptive mobility services.
We assist in rolling out new services like DriveNow, where we developed branding and UX from website to mobile app and in-car screen. We create optimized user experiences for outstanding services like Kevin O´Connor’s FindTheBest.com. Plus: we helped invent new platforms ourselves, like we did with Architizer.com, the fastest-growing platform for architecture online, with well over 1.5 million fans on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Pinterest.
Given our creative track record, we help our clients navigate communication to make customer acquisition and storytelling effective. We strive to be at the avant-garde of a changing media landscape.
Our international team of 50 strategists and creatives hails from 14 countries and is based in Berlin and New York City.
