Greek typeface known as “Les grecs du roi”.


1997: Significant investments in human resources and technical infrastructure are made.

The company grows its business potential and sets out to be one of the top branding

and design agencies in Greece.

of the Hellenic Association of Communication Agencies, aiming to proactively assist

in promoting and advancing the sector's role within the marketing industry
