Who PUK?

Why PUK?

When all is constantly changing, you need to be prepared for everything. With the determination to come up with a truly new idea every time. Through agile processes. With teams that are re-assembled to fit each task. With the pleasure that comes from always being ahead of the wave. New is normal.

What's PUK?

There are three areas of focus at PUK. Three ways to enrich the relationship between brands and humans. Together they make up everything a brand needs for a coherent appearance.

#Advertising

Specifying how humans and brands meet. Shaping the contours that make a brand relevant, believable and distinct. Making a clear statement in a way that‘s never been seen before. Providing orientation while selling.

#Content

Uncovering a shared passion between humans and brands. Cultivating and sharing this topic. Being a helper, advisor and an authority in life’s questions. In the long run, affixing humans to a brand.

#Digital

Facilitating the conversation between brands and humans 365 days a year. Helping brands to remain spontaneous and alive. Creating enthralling, immersive brand experiences, as is only possible in the digital realm. And sometimes simply being useful.
