The best marketing strategy for brands today? Working with visual artists
We do more than just put art on walls – we work on commissions that include retail activation, advertising campaigns, and limited products. We are a creative agency that is uniquely placed to connect you with the talent that represents your story, and we have the expertise to deliver it, from start to finish.
With over 60 artists on our books, we have a wealth of expertise delivering projects on all scales, for different purposes with diverse brands. We are known to engage large demographics and match the storytelling of the most inspiring brands with our artists.
We want our artists to inspire everyone, everywhere
Working with artists can raise brand visibility and offer advertising benefits. Collaborations demonstrate innovation, affirming the brand’s position as an influential leader, up-to-date with current trends, and socially engaged. When a brand’s story and messages are represented by an artist aligned with the same sentiments, partnerships build a valuable branding strategy.
How to work with us
If you have an idea of the sort of project you’d like to commission, contact us to tell us about it. If you want to know more about working with artists but aren’t sure how it could work for your brand, we can help you!
After you’ve spoken to us about your project, we can match you up with the most suitable artists who will work on design concepts.
We manage as much of the process as you need us to – managing the talent, overseeing production, securing PR and measuring data, from social media and conversion rates to marketing value, so we know just how successful your project is.
