Special projects require you to dig deep.

Sometimes there are communication measures that break the mold. Projects that are special because they should be especially ‘something’. Especially stand out. Convey an important brand message or new brand mark up. These are referred to as beacon projects, benchmark communication, communicative highlights.

For this kind of projects we are experts.

We love these special projects with their special requirements. Highlights only come to be when you think beyond the expected and ordinary. And there you will find something that hits a nerve: a strong, relevant idea.

Florian Kähler

Creative Director, Freelance Copywriter

Florian is convinced that a strong stance makes brands strong. When brands know what they stand for and what valuable contribution they make, communication is that much easier for them. It is with passion that Florian defines passionate brands, finds and formulates their purpose and their inspiring message. He learned this at Springer & Jacoby and has continued to develop it over the past 18 years, in addition to his classic handcraft of creative campaign concepts. www.florian-kaehler.de
