As a boutique agency, we are delighted that our core team have worked with the company for many years, allowing them to grow and understand the brands we work with and represent. Dr Tessa Hartmann, founded the company with her husband Sascha some eighteen years ago. Joined by Karen Gillies - Office Manager, Kevin McCormack - Creative Technical Director, Karla Andrews - Account Manager and Heather Morton - Junior Account Executive, they boast a small but dynamic team with an abundance of expertise across the marketing spectrum. Such accolades from the Institute of Public Relations Pride Awards, Public Relations Excellence Awards and Scottish Event Awards have earned the agency the reputation as Scotland's authority on fashion, lifestyle & entertainment with a client roster that Includes some of the world's most luxurious and most sought after high street brands. Their ambition is to bring that expertise to Jersey to an ever growing and exciting retail market place.
In 2006 the company set up the now globally renowned Scottish Fashion Awards (which scooped 'Best Event of the Year' at the Scottish Event Awards 2014 for the second year running) and in the Spring of 2014 the company launched a new digital platform entitled Caledonista.com. It is their ambition to bring that expertise to Jersey and to create dynamic new events and platforms, which would in turn lead to increased retail activity, brand enhancement for the island and also have a positive impact on Jersey as the destination of choice for a discerning tourist customer.
Together our team can offer your company, small or large, an abundance of knowledge and creative guidance on brand positioning. From the basic elements in a press release to the formation of a new digital or social media creative campaign or 3D animation or special effects for your company, we are literally an extension of your existing management team.
Our in house multi-lingual abilities also allow us to operate across Europe if needed and our state of the art music and animation facilities distinguish us from our competitors.
