BUTTERFLY CULTURE

We didn’t want to describe or talk about Butterfly in a corporate way.
We simply want to share with you words that you will hear a lot here in our studio at Butterfly or with our clients.

 

THE BUTTERFLIES

Bright, open-minded, straightforward, international, warm, ambitious, creative, different, well travelled, generous, proud, collaborative and demanding.

 

A DAY IN THE OFFICE

Buzzy, inspiring, exotic, surprising, demanding, daring, rigorous, fun, challenging and contagious.

Ryan - Designer

What I bring to butterfly is a multi-disciplinary skill set combined with a curious and creative design approach.

What butterfly gives me is the opportunity to push myself out of my comfort zone as well as cultivating an openly creative environment within design.


Philipp - Associate Director

What I bring to Butterfly is challenging the norm and pushing us to go further. (I also bring my dog, Liquor, to the office quite a lot).

Butterfly gives me the chance to work on some amazing challenges, travel the world and be creative in building a brand’s future.

We believe in the power of Emotions. Butterfly was born with the idea that emotions drive our behavior. We were founded 2009 with the clear ambition of becoming a leading brand strategy and innovation company with an expertise in building emotional connections between brands and consumers.
