DRIVE Services for Digital Communication

DRIVE provides a full service for communication using digital media. We work long, hard and diligently on your projects and goals – as a partner you can depend on.

Analysis, concept, consultation

What good communication work achieves can be seen long-term. Analysis, creativity and concepts provide the basis at DRIVE:

  • Analysis: of brands, markets, competitive structures, products and their benefits; of customers and users with their requests and requirements; of dialog structures, media use and provision.
  • Strategy and consultation: We develop with you the communication strategy and creative concepts you seek. The result: you see the opportunities and options for new communication solutions available to you.
  • Project planning: development of timetable and budget. The crucial factor: feasibility!
  • Monitoring of the results

DRIVE creativity lends impetus to your communication

Graphic design: Form follows function – and nowhere more so than with electronic media. Extensive knowledge of technological innovations and usability is key here. It alone enables operating sequences to be optimized and reading and viewing habits to be used for quick and direct communication without having to shop around. DRIVE provides digital graphic design, interactive brand design & corporate design, graphic design print, online streaming, photography, illustration, and much more besides.

Text and editing: So that your message successfully reaches all the people it is supposed to, good websites need good text, which in turn requires maintenance. DRIVE creates text for all media, managing the editing of websites, newsletters and online communities, and so forth. Internationally based, we work in all languages in tandem with native speakers.
