arteficegroup. The Italian art of Branding the Difference.
Italian agency with international flair, founded in 1996, fiercely independent, over 80 people strong, with offices in Milano and Torino.
It is strategic, creative, strongly brand-design oriented, with a feel for innovative thinking.
Moreover it has a groundbreaking ability to produce in-home the outputs for packaging and retail concepts.
Our approach to a wider idea of branding
The process starts by identifying the brand profile along with all its perspective developments and potential goals.
All this flows into what we call a creative-productive strategy, which is applied to each of our vertical competences, activating synergy and coherence in every moment of the project: packaging, retail, online and offline communication.
This is how our unmatched and extraordinary ability to bring projects to life is realized.
arteficegroup redefines any branding theoretical activity, transmuting it into Strategic Making, an active way of thinking based on the minimization of the distance often arising between thinking and making.
