There we were, all sipping our zingy espressos and basking in the early evening sun at Edelweiss. Psyching ourselves for the up-coming Gorlitzer Park Lawn Bowling Championships, an annual event unlike any other. We'd each travelled a good ways to get here.
The Berlin Hot Jazz Band softly strummed away; well-heeled business people were mixing it with Kreuzberg folks and young hipsters. The atmosphere was relaxed, an easy end to the day.
It didn't take too long for us to notice that each had a Thomas Taylor carry bag. Hmmm. We struck up a conversion, passed out business cards, and . . . what's this? All in design and marketing?
Long story short, so began WhatBox . . . a now well-established fine-design boutique firm, providing businesses and entrepreneurs with a complete and relevant set of kick-ass branding and marketing tools – that speak directly to today’s tech-lit consumer.
WhatBox is a multi-disciplinary branding and design firm headquartered in Montréal, Canada. Our team is a savvy well-oiled unit that provides street-smart, hard-not-to-notice creative graphic design and business branding, state-of-the-art web design and in-house commercial photographic solutions for entrepreneurial growth-oriented companies. We provide strategically sound, somewhat irreverent but relevant creative solutions, responsive client service and a genuine, fully transparent commitment to their success.
WhatBox clients are found throughout Canada and also internationally - from the USA to Australia, and everywhere in between. Except Vulcan Point; we're yet to have the phone ring from this neck of the woods, but it's marked in the calendar for a visit.
