French-born and headquartered in Paris, it rapidly grew from startup to an international company with 200 staff across 5 offices in Paris, London, Hong-Kong, New York and Shanghai. We are now a proud member of You & Mr Jones, the world’s first BRANDTECH group (the art of combining marketing and branding with the power of technology to help marketers build brands better, faster and cheaper).

We work with our clients to achieve these goals using a combination of consulting, software, and managed services.
