Agency for purpose-driven
communication

„We turn happenings into stories. Stories that speak to you,
engage your mind and evoke emotions. Our goal is to ultimately
turn brand messages into memorable experiences.”

Ágnes Szőke

Open Communications is the true partner
that communications leaders can trust.
We initiate and deliver.

When we created Open Communications, two things drove us. Firstly, we enjoyed what we were doing. We brought to life the sales-driven messages of our clients, the stories that made their brands interesting while retaining their identities. That’s how the magic happened: we created an experience and made their target audience curious without them even noticing. Connecting sense and sensibility.

Our other aim was to create a workplace where all our employees feel comfortable. A stress-free environment, where team members inspire each other. Since then, the most important thing in the hiring process is that employees choose us as much as we choose them. That is how we become a team.

With the dawn of the smart era, agencies, bloggers and influencers who consider themselves storytellers have suddenly emerged. However, the levers of human communication are constant: moving them requires communication expertise and responsibility as well. It only “worth” to tell stories in an ethical and smart way. Our purpose-driven clients find this expertise in the purpose-driven communications we represent.

What we offer

Stories

By bringing the brand to life through a good story, we move the customer from the interest phase to the “I want this!” phase.

Authenticity

Designing and implementing communication activities, we take care that our clients remain true to their mission, so that their reputation is credible and built for the long term

Relationships

Nothing is as important as living relationships, maybe only their quality.
For this, you need professionalism, and – for that certain chemistry – the human factor.

Creativity

You don’t necessarily need a BIG budget to make a story live. Rather, it needs a creative twist. It’s this “twist, not shout” approach that makes our brands successful.

Our clients who have taken advantage of all this

Over more than two decades, from world-renowned opera singers to foundations, start-ups and the world’s largest and most famous corporations, we’ve helped countless organisations and personalities bring their brands to life: finding the stories that best fit them, yet unique, and bringing these stories to our clients’ audiences.

We have gathered experiences, the thoughts have inspired us
