It’s best to start at Square1
Square1 Marketing is our sister company and award winning marketing communications agency. What these lovely marketers can do with a brand is nothing short of awesome! We work seamlessly with the Squares when a client brief demands that little extra magic to deliver an event experience that’s on brand, on budget and beyond expectations, that’s when the dream team of the Globes and the Squares come together.
By taking clients back to the beginning, Square1 help identify their points of difference and define their corporate personality. They then translate that unique essence into strategic, creative, engaging and consistent communication across all platforms – web, print, video, exhibition, social, presentation, campaign, events (with our help, of course!)… whatever canvas is right to achieve their objectives and to bring their brands to life!
In partnership, Square1 encourage our clients to build and nurture strong, relevant brands that don’t just stand out, but stand up!
