Every organisation today, commercial or non-profit, has an identity. Accidental or planned, it communicates with the world and, depending of whom it communicates with, does that well or not. Filburg is a team of professionals working on making an organisation’s identity well thought out and aligned with internal values, and its communication in physical or virtual space clear, consistent, and efficient. Our main tools are brand strategies and design, mediums visual communications and marketing — along the way we solve various problems such as inadequate communication, misunderstanding of a product or service, poor wayfinding for customers, visitors or employees, etc. Our work has been awarded by The Art Directors Club New York, UK Sign Design Society, Hiiibrand, Awwwards, and many clients who entrusted us with their brands.
No fooling around with deadlines.
Smart is beautiful.
Your results = our results.
Working long-term, not putting out fires.
Forget “I like it – I don’t like it”.
We do only what you really need.
Medium is just a platform for ideas.
