INNOVATION IS A MUST
A brand looses relevancy when it stops moving and increases in value when it innovates. Therefore we constantly look for value improvement chances.
CO-ENTREPRENEURSHIP IS THE ATTITUDE
We see our clients as partners. We invest our time when we believe in something and, when applicable, we work with more risk-involved contracts in order to reflect this attitude.
FIRST WE BREAK THEN WE BUILD
We build together towards a shared ambition. By doing so we work with double the force, set the right conditions and work from pre-defined roles.
CONTINUITY MEANS GROWTH
By reflecting our work we continuously build on something which lives, moves and grows. Success means trust, perseverance and a structure beyond project thinking.
Festina employees are all craftsman. We cover the areas of business development, brand strategy, creative solutions, design-thinking and web /app production.
