Who we are
Bridging the cultural space where the arts, commerce, and philanthropy intersect, we devise nuanced approaches to realizing the goals of commercial, institutional, and artistic ventures. Sensitive to shifting cultural winds, we harness their power to help shape new images or identities of corporate, institutional, or artistic undertakings.
Our Red Team of specialists, associates and consultants, will penetrate each situation to assess its weaknesses so we can identify areas of improvement and effect change. The Red Team
challenges preconceived notions, and serves to elucidate the problems and to find the right solution.
