About us

"Switzerland’s image is closely related to the people and things that create it, such as Swiss brands, athletes and products. It is with such icons – and sometimes clichés – that we work. Our role is to showcase them in the best possible light and explain what makes them specifically Swiss and how that impacts Switzerland’s image."
