Identifying the cultural gap between the “Corporate World of Brands” and “Youth Culture” The Shop was created.
Assuming the role as “cultural interpreter” we became the middle man in developing and executing strategic marketing initiatives on a global basis between “youth brands/influencers” and major global corporations.
Starting in Costa Mesa, CA in 1997 we evolved to open offices in Sydney, Australia; Oxford, UK and Ibiza, Spain.
Clients Included: Sprite (Global), Allied Domecq (Kahlua – Global), Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP), Reebok (Global), Siemens (Global); Heineken (Australia); Suntory (Midori /Jose Cuervo/Jaegermeister – Australia); Bacardi (Australia); Paramount Home Entertainment (Australia).
