Where we work – our locations


We are where we live.

Founded and grown in Mainz, we live in the Rhine-Main region. And for over 20 years, our interdisciplinary teams have been working here successfully. That’s how we became one of the largest agencies in the region.

Shanghai, China

We are where the future is happening.

German thoroughness meets Chinese dynamic. “Made in China” is no longer a flaw and many innovations originate here. As early as 2006, we established our office in the business metropolis of Shanghai. Now, more than 30 employees work here for clients such as Porsche, Bosch, or Haier. Deep in the heart of the Chinese innovation motor.

Boston, USA

We are where innovation has tradition.

In 2009, we opened our think tank in Boston, USA. From there, we work with local clients, such as EMD Serono, and support projects remotely in Mainz and Stuttgart. This way, all our locations profit from a technological head start: Uber, IoT and Connected Services were already part of everyday life for our US colleagues, when Europe was discovering these services.
