Icebergs are pretty cool. The parts you can see are impressive, but the most exciting parts are beneath the surface. What you don’t see is teeming with life, but also dangerous (especially to those who do not pay attention to it). Brandartica is a small creative house. In our world, the elements of a brand that lurk beneath the surface, what is being overlooked, can be the most crucial to your success. Our bags are packed for adventure with decades of branding, design, and communications experience. We’re problem-solving partners offering creative solutions that increase our clients’ sales revenue.
These partners of Brandartica came together to form an Advertising Anti-Agency. This simply means: we do things differently. By eliminating the traditional non-productive agency roles, we’ve sped up the communications and creative process. Being nimble, effective, and wildly creative is only the tip of the iceberg. We’re responsive, organized, and (in our opinion) fun to work with!
we don’t show you what should be, but how it could be…
