The 4th of May Adamsky Paris opens it's doors!
Adamsky has since 2003 focused on helping Swedish creators, whether they are photographers, filmmakers, musicians or art directors, to work with the best clients abroad. Today, almost half of Adamskys commissions are international. In order to expand further in this development Adamsky now opens office in Paris.
"Swedish creatives are super hot abroad! Taking this step an important part of Adamskys expansion. We have a very strong domestic market and we want to grow abroad. France is much more shaken by the financial crisis than Sweden, but despite it Swedish creativity extremely sought after right now. Whether it is digital, photo or film, "says Alexander Aaseby, president and co owner of Adamsky.
The decision to open in the fashion “mecca” of Paris was the given choice for the agency. Adamsky has over the years worked with clients such as Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Hermés and Prada, and made both commercials, photos shoots and music on the French market. An office in Paris will subsequently increase the proximity to fashion clients who doing business there. Several of Adamsky photographers, Peter Gerkhe, Andreas Larsson and Emil Larsson also work regularly in Paris. The agency also has the photographer, Ola Rindal living in Paris.
In addition to the opening of the new office Adamsky recruited a partner Julie Berton - with over 10 years experience in advertising and fashion industry. Julie has worked with the agency's clients for several years and has a strong network in Paris.
"Adamsky has a strong and broad network in all markets but to be successful abroad, requires local knowledge and sensitivity for each mission. An overall awareness best achieved by actual presence. Therefore, we recruited Julie Berton - she is perfect for Adamsky "says Alexander Aaseby.
May the 4th is set for the opening of Adamskys first office at 4, rue de Rocroy, 75010 Paris. Prior to the opening Adamsky will launch the agency's most recent photographer, Klaus Thymann who has worked with clients like Nike, Adidas, Evian, Audi, ID Magazine, etc.
"It is a privilege to be part of Adamskys expansion in Paris. Their photographers are top class, I look forward to presenting them to the French clients and advertising agencies," says Julie Berton.
