Eastern and western audiences are very different in the way they receive understanding and respond to information and ideas. To promote the brand image to eastern and western audiences from different cultural backgrounds requires a different approach. So when most companies expand into global markets, they need agencies to bridge the domestic and overseas markets. To grasp these differences in communication is vital; hence it’s valuable and meaningful to do a professional cross-cultural exchange for our clients.
HARDcANDY was set up with the intention to build a creative bridge between Europe and China. As Asian native, HARDcANDY has an in-depth understanding of this exciting and rapidly expanding market. Providing an opportunity for both European and local brands to explore and break into the vast China and the wider Asian market but help to build a solid brand presence with the right language and strategy. In the meantime, we also help Chinese young designer present their talent in Europe, for example attend The Big Four Fashion Week each season and other trade shows.
