We CONNECT people, brands and society using COMMUNICATION and LIVE EVENTS. Abstract concepts such as your core values, mission, vision and ambition will be meaningful in the heads and hearts of the people that matter to you.

Whether it is an annual event for business relations, an anniversary, a product launch, the staff party or the opening of a new building: Artishock turns your expense into an investment by creating moments with IMPACT.
Live communication can be divided into three phases. These phases can be followed in one logical order, merge into each other or even stand on its own depending on the narrative.
We turn your abstract target groups into loyal followers using our concepts. Based on your input we create a narrative based on your unique message. A narrative that makes impact and will be passed on. This narrative consists of a series of moments to reach your goals and inspire your target groups. With these moments we will touch the people who matter to you in their minds and heart.
Together we will translate your unique story to a clear and recognizable image that evokes the feeling of recognition in everyone. From corporate identity to branding and event styling. We shape your story in an innovative way that generates impact in the long term. A story that sells.
