Agency

Founded 2005 in Germany as a specialist PR agency for strategic lifestyle communication and fashion PR, we now have a staff of 20 in Düsseldorf and Munich involved in the creation of individual communication solutions for brand manufacturers.

Our love for life & style still continues today. And we have consciously opened our showroom in Munich in the immediate vicinity of leading fashion editors. In addition to earned media, however, we have for several years also been creating owned, paid and shared content for our clients. This enables us not only to reach the desired target groups, but also to generate relevance – the most important factor in terms of positioning messages.

 

Ensuring that this functions requires two things in addition to craftsmanship: an integral view of the brand world and profound knowledge of the respective target group. For this reason, our concept planning combines strategic planning tools and data with our lifestyle expertise in trends. On this basis, we develop ideas and measures that simultaneously fit both the brand and its clients.

We do not think in terms of disciplines but in terms of our customers’ needs.

Whether a concept demands a press event, a cooperation with an influencer or a video production, it can only be of interest when you have found the essential key – the idea.

And as we know, ideas can be good and bad. The bad ones you recognise quickly, although good ones also have to be tested for their target quality. And this can only be done by someone with profound knowledge of the market and with consumer insights.

This is the reason why we specialised. We work for national and international brands wanting to position themselves strategically in the leisure, fashion or lifestyle segment. Because this is where we feel at home.

Consumers trust their friends and love dialogues and interaction. This is why the success of a social media strategy is determined not only by the tool but also by the story telling. Content is only shared if it is seen as credible and relevant by the target group.
