We are passion about what we do. Diverse, agile, open-minded and always curious to learn new things and try them out. This also goes for the digital group OPEN, which we co-founded. Thanks to our bundled competence, we ensure a story can release its full power – from lead to conversion to loyalty.
Our strategy looks into heads, hearts and the future. Allowing stories
to unfold which are relevant and can be developed further. Whether business strategy, purpose, value proposition, brand economics, trend scenarios, cross-media strategy, content and media strategy, or customer journey – our experts create a guidance system for creative communication. And together with our clients, we develop the right version for each company.
If you’ve got the story, you’ve got the lead. We are the superpower for finding this story about products and brands. To touch users and inspire them, and to create an emotional connection with the brand. Together with our clients, we create, curate and design new worlds. And make these experiences – international and interdisciplinary, across all media and in the right communication channels. After all, convincing stories told in a surprising way – that’s what we love to do.
We turn stories into experiences. Thrilling and exciting, in various ways. Our creative minds turn out small and big ideas – with passion and competence, with craftsmanship, digital and artificial intelligence. We are a team of new-thinkers, social media enthusiasts, music fans, film lovers, event pros, tech nerds, word specialists, visual world designers. Ready to tell the right story, for awareness on all levels.
Tintin, from the Belgium series “The adventures of Tintin”, was my childhood hero. He took me along on all his adventures around the world. The Blue Lotus took place in Shanghai, and the scenery was the most exotic, colourful, dangerous – in other words creative – that I could ever imagine. This inspired the name – a place I longed to be in my childhood years.Stefan Karl, Founder of SHANGHAI BERLIN
