Creative/Design Director
These are ‘brand new’ times. It’s only when people and companies are challenged —by the outside world or by themselves — that they will truly move forward.

More and more, companies are beginning to understand that people want meaning instead of messaging. Call it conversation, call it content, call it whatever you like. Brands are not about what you say and how you look, but about who you are and what you do.

At Brand New World, we dare companies to (re)discover who they really are. Why are they doing what they are doing; what is their purpose, to share with employees, customers and all other stakeholders?

We help brands to clearly communicate their vision, beliefs and personality in a coherent, inspiring way: based on a challenging strategy, through a performing visual and verbal identity, with a powerful brand story.

So they, somehow, become brand new.

Specialties: Corporate, Employer & Product Branding - Recruitment Communication - Internal Communication - B2B - Corporate Communication & Advertising
