Creation is visual intelligence.


  • brandtec to design a bold campaign for Commerz Real AG for the EXPO REAL 2018 which visualises the inseparable connection between the digital and real world by fusing people and real estate.

    This creates brand awareness and visitors are also guided to the EXPO. Using employees in the campaign motifs, CR position themselves at eye level and provide authentic insight into the company.

    By adapting the campaign to the image brochure, the website and implementing a mobile marketing campaign, brandtec can multiply this effect once again and the company’s experts can engage in dialogue.

  • brandtec to oversee the advertising launch for two new mutual funds established by PATRIZIA GrundInvest

    Founded in 2015, the subsidiary PATRIZIA GrundInvest offers private and professional investors the opportunity to participate in the performance of PATRIZIA’s closed-end real estate funds. Since then, seven retail funds with an investment volume of approx. EUR 420 million have already been placed.

    brandtec will develop a key visual and a selling story for new investment properties of the successful real estate company for the fourth time.

    The “PATRIZIA GrundInvest – Frankfurt / Hofheim” and “PATRIZIA GrundInvest – Smart Living” product information brochures lend a ‘face’ to two different investment properties and, in addition to offering figures for attractive yield prospects, also provide all-round informative and illustrative information on the investment properties.

  • For the first time, brandtec designed and implemented the print and online edition of the hausInvest annual report.

    With more than 800,000 Investors and 13.2 bn Euro fund volume hausInvest is one of Europes biggest open-ended real estate funds.

    The design concept brings the new US real estates into focus and provides an overview of current figures as well as a foresight.

    The online edition provides interesting information like specialist articles, interviews and a facts & figures movie which highlight the focus topics.

  • Relaunch of corporate design and website of First Private Investment Management KAG mbH

    As an independent asset manager, FIRST PRIVATE have been offering continuity, transparency and reliability for 25 years, and possess the drive to make excellent investment strategies a little better each day.

    The Frankfurt-based asset management boutique now underlines this claim with its new appearance thanks to the brandtec agency’s expertise as „financial brand designers“; that went into the strategy, conception, creation and implementation of the company’s new image.

    The corporate design was given a modern and reduced design that is both clean and clear-cut, resulting in a quality, respectable yet at the same time personable image. A redesign of the company logo combines modernity with timelessness and a clear recognition value.

    Thanks to a comprehensive concept of moving images, the website continues with the modern, authentic and personable brand strategy.
