We’re a fully-fledged & full-service PR agency providing complex communication services – starting with strategies and creative solutions, accompanied by excellent media relations, online and social-networks management, and last but not least event management, media buying, graphic design and branding.
When the rainy days come, we are the best friend – an umbrella – for companies, institutions and non-profit organisations – that is what our clients who used our crisis communication services say about us.
We’re big enough to equip big players with full-package & high-quality services, while preserving our boutique philosophy that every client deserves a tailor-made, individual and around-the-clock service.
We love to create and provide authentic communication for responsible companies, companies that care. This is one of the reasons why we focus on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). It is a vital part of services we’re offering to our clients and it’s something our agency is involved with via our very own philanthropic and charity activities. There is a large chunk of our agency’s capacities and resources dedicated for non-profit organisations which are thus able to gain a substantial support and traction thanks to our pro-bono services.
