about us

We have advised the most ambitious brands and organizations and run multi-market programs in a digital world. Brand and reputation building in the “earned space” is in our DNA. We have lived and worked in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the U.S.. Our belief is that global consistency is as important as local relevancy. We believe that specialists are required to succeed in the new world.

Our own network, the Fluid collective, provides us with those specialists. We operate as an international virtual team.
